My Dad kept a compass attached to his dashboard with Velcro. A regular north, south, east, west little black plastic compass. He had it long before the days of the GPS or the cell phone.
We wish everyone a happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 20 and happy Chinese New Year on Saturday, Jan. 25. Chinese New Year is also known as their spring festival. This year, 4718, will be the Year of the Cat.

Well, the holidays are over and it’s back to the old grind. Susan and I took our annual trek to New Jersey for Christmas. The best part, for me, is returning home.
So, the holidays are over and we are back home after two weeks in California. Enjoyed the stay but glad to be back. We had a quiet New Years’ Eve and day as we did the red eye from California. We didn’t get much sleep for a couple of days so had some catching up to do.

The EF Hutton commercial used to say “Inquiring minds want to know.” I admit to having an inquiring mind. One of my favorite Christmas songs is Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene’s “Mary, Did You Know?” in which he wondered how much Mary knew about and understood her Son.
As I write my column, it has been a very busy Christmas week and day. We are in California and just spent three days in Las Vegas with our son, Ben, and his fiancée, Laura. They love to play poker and Norm loves to play craps, so they really enjoyed themselves.
Volunteers came together to decorate the front entrance and amenity center for Waterford Plantation. The board of directors appreciates all who came forward for the community. A date will be posted after the first of the year for another event to take it all down and store for the future.

The activity committee has just come off one of the most successful years to date. They have returned some old favorites as well as introduced some new events for the community.
I love Christmas music and listen to it in my car constantly. I have a lot of Christmas CDs from different artists and enjoy the different renditions of carols old and new (for you young folks, ask your parents what a CD is).
I enjoy and appreciate the ministries of a number of well-known radio preachers including David Jeremiah, Max Lucado, Charles Swindoll, Jeff Schreve, Ravi Zacharias, Erwin Lutzer, the late Adrian Rogers and more. But, listening in my car, I seldom hear a whole sermon.
I enjoy and appreciate the ministry of a number of well-known radio “preachers” including David Jeremiah, Max Lucado, Charles Swindoll, Jeff Schreve, Ravi Zacharias, Erwin Lutzer, the late Adrian Rogers and more. But since I’m listening in my car as I go visiting, run errands and so on, I se…
As I write my column, I’m sure many of you are hitting the Black Friday sales. Since both of our children live in California, I have them do an Amazon wish list and then I order and have it shipped to California, and wrap it once we get there. That makes my shopping easier, so I’m pretty wel…
Thursday, Nov. 28, Thanksgiving Day, was 65 degrees for Plantation Lakes’ popular annual turkey trot chaired by residents Michal Kovac and David Turner. Winner details will follow.
We are finally home from our Italy trip. We left just in time, as two days after we left Venice, the city got flooded with six feet of water. They had a super moon and tide, and Venice is slowly sinking, and the water just came over the sea walls.

Sunday, Nov. 3, was designated as the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. I hope all churches, like thousands around the world, spent time praying for those who are being persecuted for their faith.
Some of our Berkshire neighbors go all out decorating for Halloween. I do believe that the adults kind of enjoy this holiday the most because they get to dress up and try to be spooky.
Christina Stanley and her activity committee held a Veterans Day tribute for veterans of The Farm on Saturday, Nov. 9, in the amenity center.
As I write my column, I’m sitting in the Marco Polo airport waiting for a flight back to Myrtle Beach. After being gone 14 days, I’m ready to get home.
If you have little people sitting at the grown-up table this Thanksgiving, you can keep them entertained, thanks to LaffGaff, with these groan-worthy jokes and puns:
