I WAS THINKING…
no matter how many Christmases we’ve had, each year is still very special. It’s enchanting to hear the Christmas carols as we shop and to see the beautiful decorated homes and of course, to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas. We all have our own unique Christmas memories from the time we were growing up. Cherish those memories and may you have another Merry Christmas.
WINTER HAS ARRIVED
(Taken from Farmer’s Almanac)
The first day of winter was December 21st. Here’s some interesting facts about cold.
A cup of coffee or a sip of brandy will not make you warmer. In fact, caffeine and alcohol can cause your core temperature to drop. Instead, drink warm water.
Shivering is actually good. It means the body is trying to warm up. The body automatically responds to heat loss that threatens to lower your core temperature. Shivering can triple the body’s heat production.
Not everyone feels the same level of cold. Age, gender, fitness level, acclimatization are factors that determine when one feels cold. A woman’s blood vessel contract sooner than men, so women’s skin feels colder more quickly.

PANCAKES & BISCUITS
(Taken from Household Hinds & Handy Tips)
For the lightest pancakes or waffles, replace the liquid with club soda. But it won’t store well, use all as soon as it’s made.
Baking powder biscuits will be tough if you overmix after adding the liquid. Stir only enough to dampen dry ingredients; don’t worry about a few lumps.
Cut biscuit dough into squares instead of round. There’ll be no scraps to roll again.
THIS I’VE LEARNED
The best revenge is non. Although it’s not easy, it’s better to move on and don’t become like those who hurt you. Think about it.
