Clement Clarke Moore wrote the classic poem below which has been read aloud to children on Christmas Eve for generations.

Christmas morning: Special starts for a special day

Posted 12/19/2012 in Food

An indelible memory I carry from childhood is of Christmas morning breakfasts.

Being beautiful: Memories of snow globes, Santa and joy for all seasons

Posted 12/15/2012 in Columns

Ever wonder why snow globes are so magical? I have always had a fixation on them. As a little boy, I can remember following along on my mama's coattails at the local TWL, or as we called it "the dollar store."
