Much To Be Thankful For

  • I had a great trip to Chicago and I am thankful to be back home, safe and sound, just in time for my favorite holiday.

  • Chuck and Aleta send their Thanksgiving greetings to everyone from Florida. They also sent us the poem and cartoons below to brighten our day.
    May your stuffing be tasty
    May your turkey plump,
    May your potatoes and gravy
    Have never a lump.
    May your yams be delicious
    And your pies take the prize,
    And may your Thanksgiving dinner
    Stay off your thighs!

  • Thanks to Glenn for sending us this link; we are so thankful you are feeling well enough to drive yourself up to Sam's many mornings. For those of you who can't access the actual Catonsville Times, check out the nice article by Kevin Rector at The photo in the paper by Sarah Nix also included Doug and Paul. Kevin, you did a good job of pulling together all of those conversations. Thanks for taking the time to talk with everyone and write so thoughtfully!

  • Every year for one weekend in December, downtown Baltimore attractions, led by the National Aquarium, drop admission prices to $1 or even less. These discounts drive large crowds to the Inner Harbor, but with all the holiday events going on at Harborplace and the rest of the waterfront, it's a great time to make a trip to the Inner Harbor. This year, the discount weekend will be held December 7-8. Can't beat the price! When else can you get into the National Museum of Dentistry for just a $1? I can't wait!
