My husband and I hosted the Family Thanksgiving event this last Thursday at our place. I took great care to shop early, clear the "to do" list, and made plans on serving the meal promptly at noon (for those traveling from out of town, so we could eat early and then enjoy visiting before all had to be back on the road). I am usually right on target with the committed time...but not so this day.

.......and round and round we go. I'm not an avid stock-watcher by any means but I did notice recently an article featuring the historical performance of a "Members Only Warehouse" stock, it was very stable and often progressive........and I know why!

Did any of you get a chance to watch the finals of the Westminster Kennel Club competition? Well, it was delightful! Precocious and so precious was the baying, bouncing, and barking beagle named Uno, and he had won! He apparently was a consistent crowd favorite and as his handler indicated, "He's a people's dog". The sold-out crowd chanted his name and roared when he was pronounced the winner.

With February 14th looming near, I was encouraged to read that at the Story Brook University in New York, "functional magnetic-resonance imaging" can analyze the brain while you're looking at a photo of your true love. The machine records changes in oxygen levels of the blood feeding the brain. If there's a high level of freshly oxygenated blood in certain areas of the brain, there's an indication that the brain is more active in that area.

In the 2/5/08 edition of the Wallstreet Journal (frontpage I might add), there was an article titled "Empathy Lessons in School" caught my eye, so I kept reading......a Canadian nonprofit group called "Roots of Empathy", is now bringing to some U.S. school classrooms a program designed to reduce bullying by exposing students to "empathy babies" for a whole academic year.

Well, at the Holderman Household evening last week, two of my colleagues and I were out for a business dinner, and one of the appetizers on the menu looked quite appealing, so I ordered it-two whole cloves of baked garlic, roma tomatoes and a touch of olive oil. A few hours later, I arrived at home, excited to greet my husband after a long day and instead of "honey, how was your day?", the first thing out of his mouth was "WHAT did you have for dinner?"......."Well, what do you think I had, and 'hello to you too!'
