Happy National Parfait Day!

And, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone I know south of the border. :-) Even MORE importantly though - it's ONE MONTH TILL CHRISTMAS!!

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

A thought, so easily applied to many different aspects of life.

Man has always been drawn to the sea, but it is an unnatural setting for us, a place of great danger. Tides, currents, waves, wind - each presenting their own hazards, none of which can be ignored. The slightest lapse of judgement can be a mistake you can never recover from. But a good sailor doesn't fight against these elements, a good sailor works with them, using them to his advantage. While others less fortunate might be forever cast adrift, often in several pieces, he always comes home safely.

National Candy Day!

Four days too late (personally, I think Halloween would be more appropriate), but a candy day is a candy day!
