Smile Message to all

Dear Santa, I don't want much for Christmas/Channukah., I just want the person reading this to be happy. Friends are the fruit cake of life --- some nutty, some soaked in alcohol, some sweet, but mix them together and they're my friends At Christmas you always hear people talking about what they want & bought. This is what I want...: I want people who are sick with no cure to be able to be cured. I want children with no families to be adopted. I want people to never have to worry about food, shelter & heat. I want peace and love for everyone! Now, let's see how many people re-post this....I have a feeling I am gonna see almost no re-posts. PLEASE prove me wrong!

No need to repost. The sentiment is wonderful. I'd say I have to qualify as one of the nuts in life's fruitcake, but that's how I like it.

That was a lovely post, babe. Thanks for sharing.

Nice post, Ella.
No I am not a barber, just a regular guy who shaves. About 6 months ago I decided I did not want to pay so much money for Mach III blades. So I googled cheap shaving and came across a traditional wet shaving forum. So now I use an old school Double Edge Safety razors. Blades for those are under a dollar each. There was a bit of a learning curve, so it was good to have other guys to talk to about it. Just like here, if we have cooking issues, there are plenty of nice people to help out.

Not that you care this much , but this is the one I use.

Wonderful, thoughtful post, Ella. To which I would add this wish: that we have a suspension of politics in the news until the first of the year.

BRAVO, ella!

My wish is simple; I wish that no one in the world would have cause to worry about someone else killing them while they just try to survive life itself.
