Sister Love

December 31st, 2011

The article written by Alonso Kramer

My sister owes me BIG! I spent all weekend helping her move into her new home. Like everything else, she was ready to buy a house at just the opportune time for a buyer. She got a huge house, in a super nice neighborhood for such a reasonable price it wasn’t even funny. My sister always has the best luck! She could pick random numbers and play the lottery and probably hit the jackpot on her first try. That’s just how she rolls. We all joke about it but it’s so true. So she found this steal of a house, bought it and moved in (with a whole lot of help from yours truly). Since she’s living by herself, she asked me to research HOME Security systems DC for her. She wants peace of mind and a better feeling of safety. She’s all set up now and called to thank me for all my help earlier tonight. She’s welcome, but she still owes me big. I’ll let her pay me back sometime! I’m a nice sister like that!

Jack Frost

December 25th, 2011

Chestnuts and open fires. Jack Frost is not yet nipping at our nose. While many people look forward to the snow and cold weather if not just on Christmas day, we haven’t received any cold weather as of yet. It would seem as though Jack Frost is on vacation.

For some reason, at this time of year, the hustle and bustle just doesn’t seem to be such a nuisance. As a matter of fact, it’s a little more welcomed. Hearts are open and full of good cheer.

Yuletide Carols

December 25th, 2011

Christmas is a time for family and friends coming together. For wishing good cheer and letting the people you love know that they are special and thought of.

But Christmas music, also known as yuletide carols passed down through many generations just add so much to the sprit of Christmas. Mostly if there is music in the air there is music in the heart. So in the spirit of Christmas, keep a song in your heart.

Defusing the past

December 13th, 2011

In the Rhine river of Germany, a remnant of the past lay waiting to destroy the future. A 1.8 ton British bomb that had been dropped in World War 2 lay unexploded. This caused a risk to all the citizens of Koblenz, a city in Western Germany. It was successfully defused on Sunday by a team of experts.

The discovery was due to low water levels in the Rhine due to a lack of rain. The finding of the bomb led to an evacuation of nearly 45,000 citizens who left their homes early Sunday morning while the bomb was dismantled. Everyone is now back in their homes and feeling a little better about the future.

Always something new

December 13th, 2011

I have seen many things in my life. One thing that has always surprised me is the way that people can be identified by the way they dress. Whenever I go out, I tend to notice what people are wearing and enjoy trying to figure out what they do for a living. It’s a fun game to me but sometimes I get surprised. This happened to me the other day at the store while I was standing in line.

A nice lady was wearing some clothes that she said she bought from a site called She looked like someone who might work in a hospital to some people, but I thought she was something different. I guess I was way off that day and could not figure out what she did while at work.

After we talked for awhile, everything was revealed. She said she was wearing nurses scrub uniforms that she had bought off the internet. She could not believe that I didn’t know right off that she worked in a hospital. We both laughed at the way things turned out. I guess I am not always right and it certainly is humbling sometimes. I guess it’s just the way things go when you’re having an off day.
