2017 in Review Posted on Jan 1, 2018, 8:01 pm
I've done this the last few years, though I don't think I did it last year. It's kind of depressing, the similarity from year to year! -- Goodbye and Happy New Year to all Holidailiers. See you next year!

Bev's Favorite TV Shows Posted on Dec 31, 2017, 9:12 pm
Since so many other Holidailiers have been writing entries about favorite TV shows, I will write this next-to-last entry about TV, since I am such a TV addict.

I have watched more and more as impeachable offenses are ignored, illegal activities ignored, and more and more eroding of everything I was so proud of that Obama did, against the obstruction of the Republicans. I no longer have hope and that is a terrible way to start a new year.

I don't remember the last time I was there, but I am embarrassed to admit that I do eat there regularly, every couple of months or so.

She mentioned knowing of one business person with a safe that holds a million dollars because there is nowhere else to legally put it!

PJ Day Posted on Dec 28, 2017, 2:12 am
Around about 3:30 today, when Walt and I were fixing ourselves lamb sandwiches for lunch, I decided there was no point in getting out of my pajamas.

Whoda Thunk Posted on Dec 27, 2017, 7:12 am
When I considered everything we planned to do for our "Christmas day" (a day late), I didn't know how it was all going to work. Miraculously, it did.

A Quiet Christmas Posted on Dec 26, 2017, 1:12 am
That's when I started to lose it. "Can I do anything to help?" Jeri asked. "Yes," I said. "CURE Dementia!"

It is the show stopper of his neighborhood and he even has a radio station with a one-block range where he plays music you can listen to in your car.

Cookies and Candy and Presents...oh MY Posted on Dec 23, 2017, 10:12 pm
I'm like that dog in the movie UP ("squirrel!!", in that I am easily distracted. Walking from one end of the house to the other to do something in the living room I can come across three other things that need to be done, start one of them, see another, then drop the first thing and start the second, then remember a third thing I need to do, and on and on and on.

Hey, I wasn't taking any chances. I faced my fear, stood in line and sat in the jolly old man's lap and also wrote him a letter.

Christmas around the World Posted on Dec 21, 2017, 9:12 pm
The Night of the Radishes (Noche de Rábanos in Spanish) is an annual event held in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico, where people carve oversized radishes into nativity scenes, with the best ones receiving prizes.

Then I managed to disconnect the entire middle section by trying to plug in our Mr. Spock/USS Enterprise ornament (doesn't that just say "Christmas" to you?) and had to wait for Walt to fix that. But he did. Yay Walt.

Discombobulated Posted on Dec 20, 2017, 12:12 pm
I went to Target because I like to support the store, which is still, unbelievably under attack in some places (not Davis) for its restrictive bathroom policy (you must use the facility which matches the gender on your birth certificate).

90 Things Posted on Dec 19, 2017, 7:12 am
She once carried a bucket of berries up a hill, while being chased by hornets, and didn’t spill a single berry.

Newspeak Posted on Dec 17, 2017, 10:12 pm
I have been thinking about Newspeak all day when I learned that the White House has forbidden the CDC from using the following words: vulnerable; entitlement; diversity; transgender; fetus; evidence-based, and science-based.

I would love to hear from people who celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanza, or Winter Solstice!

Monsters and Candy Posted on Dec 16, 2017, 7:12 pm
All I can say is Angelina Jolie and Anthony Hopkins must really have needed money when they agreed to do this film!

Life without Lizzie Posted on Dec 14, 2017, 9:12 pm
Two nights before she died, she curled up on the family room couch and put her head on the pillow there, like it was a real bed. She was so cute I wanted to take her picture but I knew that if I got up to get my cell phone, she would move, so I didn't. I figured I'd take the picture the next time she did it. I didn't realize that would be the last time.

("What shall we do for Christmas?" "I about let's kill the dog....")

Back to Seedy Bars Posted on Dec 13, 2017, 12:12 pm
There was a time in our parenting lives when the only way we could get to see much of our kids was by visiting them in seedy bars in questionable parts of town.

Scurvy Defeated Again Posted on Dec 12, 2017, 4:12 am
Hey! I have a disease. I learned from the NY Daily News that so many Americans are suffering from political anxiety that doctors have coined a term for their distress — Trump Anxiety Disorder.

Me and the Bennet Sisters Posted on Dec 10, 2017, 6:12 pm
See, my deep dark secret is that I don't love Jane Austen. ... I've taken to using Pride and Prejudice as a sleeping pill. When I am having trouble with insomnia, I find a recording of the movie, and before the credits end, I'm sound asleep. /--Also how almost all Christmas movies are inspiredby A Christmas Carol.

This is a series of questions about things you hate or loathe. Someone said it will cause a lot of controversy. What do you think?

Saturday 9 Posted on Dec 8, 2017, 7:12 pm
"Just a comment that Holidailies drives me crazy some time." -- my frustrations with Holidailies come at the bottom of the Saturday 9 meme.

Christmas around the World Posted on Dec 7, 2017, 9:12 pm
Most people had been told what was going to happen, but nobody thought to tell Sandra. All of a sudden, David chases Paul through the house yelling at him. Walt yells at both of them to stop fighting, David growls, picks up the wine bottle off of the table and hits Paul over the head with it, the bottle shattered and Sandra screamed.

Christmas List, 2018 Posted on Dec 7, 2017, 12:12 pm
Shopping at -- Having worked in an ob/gyn office for many years, I am quite familiar with the yoni. You may want to look it up.

And now for a word from our sponsor Posted on Dec 6, 2017, 3:12 am
Twenty-two commercials. I am remembering the lovely days in Ireland where the commercials were all grouped at either the beginning or the end of the program, and the program went on uninterrupted. How civilized.

Cromulent Quotidianity Posted on Dec 4, 2017, 7:12 pm
I love learning new phrases like this. This came from a blog called "Megan Knows Arse-All About," a blog I found reading through today's Holidailies entries. ---this entry is a review of several Holidailies bloggers.

The Dreaded Christmas Letter Posted on Dec 4, 2017, 1:12 pm
Turned out he had hidden a book of movie tickets in the tissue paper under the vegetables. I might never have found them if I hadn't decided to be a good sport and thank him for the vegetables.

Sunday Stealing Posted on Dec 2, 2017, 7:12 pm
I read the book to find out what all the hoopla was about and it was boring. The heroine was the most obnoxious, annoying heroine I've ever read. The blatant sex will keep people reading to the end, but I sure didn't want to read either of the sequels.

Saturday 9 Posted on Dec 2, 2017, 1:12 am
What's a holiday tradition that began with you (or your generation)? "Mom's Christmas Crisis." Now that I'm not hosting 20 people for dinner each year, that seems to have faded a bit
