A World War I song that I like, that Mary Louise Fick DeChant taught me is:  "My      Buddy"  Nights are long since you went away.  I think about you all through the day, My Buddy, No Buddy quite so true".....Marilyn Schneider Gibbs Bullock used to sing this lovely melody at many Memorial services.

Bluetooth.  Described by someone in cyberspace as "a telecommunications industry specification that describes how mobile phones, computers and personal data assistants (PDAs) can be easily interconnected using a short-range wireless connection.  Described by me as "one of the seven wonders of the world", right behind tweezers, Amazon.com, facial moisturizer, the Grand Canyon, new haircuts, cars that park themselves,  and sock monkeys.

How about those Broncos?  It's a good thing the Defense was playing well!!

Can you believe it's November already?  Thanksgiving isn't far away and Christmas is just around the corner after that.  We have certainly been having beautiful Fall weather but I suppose it will change before long, as it should.  We actually started putting some of our Christmas decorations up.  Much nicer to do it when it's warm and the ground isn't frozen.

The chorus of one of my favorite songs: " God Bless America, Land that I love, Stand beside her and Guide her through the night with the light from above,  From the mountains to the Prairies, to the Oceans white with foam.  God Bless America, My Home sweet home."   Irving Berlin  1940's
