What a windy, cold day here on the mountain! The kiddos and I took down the large tree in the family room and cleaned up the needles. We are moving the tv downstairs tomorrow. It will be nice to have the living room back. It's a great place to relax and read in. There are lots of large windows and sunlight...

We are staying in as always this evening. I read that Dick Clark will make his appearance again tonight, so we'll be watching him and the Times Square celebration.

Wishing you the best year ever! May you be healthy and prosperous and may your heart be filled with love xox

Winter Blues?

I have read articles that discuss many people getting the "winter blues", especially during the holiday season. It certainly is understandable, isn't it? There is always the pressure of getting the decorations out, shopping and hoping to please everyone and paying bills while trying to provide gifts for loved ones, illness... and the many, many people who have lost loved ones and go through the holidays without them...

I think we are simply too busy to have time to get the winter blues. There is always something going on and much to do around here. We enjoy movies and play Texas Holdem, Apples to Apples and have fun planning our summer camping trips. Family time and memories are always a joy to make.

Sometimes though, when the clouds are looming and the trees are bare and everyday life is heavy on your shoulders, it is hard to keep your chin up and a smile on your face. When you start to feel down, maybe you can look at summer pictures to cheer you up. Bundling up and taking a walk is always nice, too! I love the vacation feature on my eBay store and it frees up time for me to be with my family.

If you think you are experiencing the winter blues, which include not feeling like doing everyday things, not cleaning, spending too much time sleeping, having very little desire to leave the house or maybe even have crying spells or very sad times, you may need to take a visit to your doctor. Take care of yourself and recognize the signs of "winter blues"...

MONDAY ~ Monday...

I'm just popping in to get my blog fix and touch base... We had a wonderful Christmas and yesterday, the weather was absolutely gorgeous here. We were outside most of the day and hubby boxed up the inflatables as I went through our bin of lights and tossed out the strands that don't work any longer. We raked leaves and I got one last hop on the mower and mulched up what was left on our yard. The bradford pear leaves finally fell and a few oak leaves still cling. I cleaned up the dried lillies and watched the sunset. ahhh the joys of gardening :) I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I am off to put more things away and clean... Enjoy! xox

A Wonderful Christmas Story To Share

The old man sat in his gas station on a cold Christmas Eve. He hadn't been anywhere in years since his wife had passed away. It was just another day to him. He didn't hate Christmas, just couldn't find a reason to celebrate. He was sitting there looking at the snow that had been falling for the last hour and wondering what it was all about when the door opened and a homeless man stepped through.

Instead of throwing the man out, Old George as he was known by his customers, told the man to come and sit by the heater and warm up. "Thank you, but I don't mean to intrude," said the stranger. "I see you're busy, I'll just go." "Not without so mething hot in your belly." George said.

He turned and opened a wide mouth Thermos and handed it to the stranger. "It ain't much, but it's hot and tasty, "Stew ... made it myself. When you're done, there's coffee and it's fresh."

Just at that moment he heard the "ding" of the driveway bell. "Excuse me, be right back," George said. There in the driveway was an old '53 Chevy. Steam was rolling out of the front. The driver was panicked. "Mister can you help me!" said the driver, with a deep Spanish accent. "My wife is with child and my car is broken."

George opened the hood. It was bad. The block looked cracked from the cold, the car was dead. "You ain't going in this thing," George said as he turned away.

"But Mister, please help ..." The door of the office closed behind George as he went inside. He went to the office wall and got the keys to his old truck, and went back outside. He walked around the building, opened the garage, started the truck and d rove it around to where the couple was waiting. "Here, take my truck," he said. "She ain't the best thing you ever looked at, but she runs real good."

George helped put the woman in the truck and watched as it sped off into the night. He turned and walked back inside the office. "Glad I gave 'em the truck, their tires were shot too. That 'ol truck has brand new ." George thought he was talking to the stranger, but the man had gone. The Thermos was on the desk, empty, with a used coffee cup beside it. "Well, at least he got something in his belly," George thought.

George went back outside to see if the old Chevy would start. It cranked slowly, but it started. He pulled it into the garage where the truck had been. He thought he would tinker with it for something to do. Christmas Eve meant no customers. He discovered the the block hadn't cracked, it was just the bottom hose on the radiator. "Well, shoot, I can fix this," he said to himself. So he put a new one on.

"Those tires ain't gonna get 'em through the winter either." He took the snow treads off of his wife's old Lincoln. They were like new and he wasn't going to drive the car anyway.

As he was working, he heard shots being fired. He ran outside and beside a police car an officer lay on the cold ground. Bleeding from the left shoulder, the officer moaned, "Please help me."

George helped the officer inside as he remembered the training he had received in the Army as a medic. He knew the wound needed attention. "Pressure to stop the bleeding," he thought. The uniform company had been there that morning and had left clean shop towels. He used those and duct tape to bind the wound. "Hey, they say duct tape can fix anythin'," he said, trying to make the policeman feel at ease.

"Something for pain," George thought. All he had was the pills he used for his back. "These ought to work." He put some water in a cup and gave the policeman the pills. "You hang in there, I'm going to get you an ambulance."

The phone was dead. "Maybe I can get one of your buddies on that there talk box out in your car." He went out only to find that a bullet had gone into the dashboard destroying the two way radio.

He went back in to find the policeman sitting up. "Thanks," said the officer. "You could have left me there. The guy that shot me is still in the area."

George sat down beside him, "I would never leave an injured man in the Army and I ain't gonna leave you." George pulled back the bandage to check for bleeding. "Looks worse than what it is. Bullet passed right through 'ya. Good thing it missed the important stuff though. I think with time your gonna be right as rain."

George got up and poured a cup of coffee. "How do you take it?" he asked. "None for me," said the officer. "Oh, yer gonna drink this. Best in the city. Too bad I ain't got no donuts." The officer laughed and winced at the same time

The front door of th e office flew open. In burst a young man with a gun. "Give me all your cash! Do it now!" the young man yelled. His hand was shaking and George could tell that he had never done anything like this before.

"That's the guy that shot me!" exclaimed the officer.

"Son, why are you doing this?" asked George, "You need to put the cannon away. Somebody else might get hurt."

The young man was confused. "Shut up old man, or I'll shoot you, too. Now give me the cash!"

The cop was reaching for his gun. "Put that thing away," George said to the cop, "we got one too many in here now."

He turned his attention to the young man. "Son, it's Christmas Eve. If you need money, well then, here. It ain't much but it's all I got. Now put that pee shooter away."

George pulled $150 out of his pocket and handed it to the young man, reaching for the barrel of the gun at the same time. The young man released his grip on the gun, fell to his knees and began to cry. "I'm not very good at this am I? All I wanted was to buy something for my wife and son," he went on. "I've lost my job, my rent is due, my car got repossessed last week ."

George handed the gun to the cop. Son, we all get in a bit of squeeze now and then. The road gets hard sometimes, but we make it through the best we can."

He got the young man to his feet, and sat him down on a chair across from the cop. "Sometimes we do stupid things." George handed the young man a cup of coffee. "Bein' stupid is one of the things that makes us human. Comin' in here with a gun ain't the answer. Now sit there and get warm and we'll sort this thing out."

The young man had stopped crying. He looked over to the cop. "Sorry I shot you. It just went off. I'm sorry officer."

"Shut up and drink your coffee." the cop said.

George could hear the sounds of sirens outside. A police car and an ambulance skidded to a halt. Two cops came through the door, guns drawn. "C huck! You ok?" one of the cops asked the wounded officer

"Not bad for a guy who took a bullet. How did you find me?"

"GPS locator in the car. Best thing since sliced bread. Who did this?" the other cop asked as he approached the young man.

Chuck answered him, "I don't know. The guy ran off into the dark. Just dropped his gun and ran."

George and the young man both looked puzzled at each other.

"That guy work here?," the wounded cop continued. "Yep," George said, "just hired him this morning. Boy lost his job."

The paramedics came in and loaded Chuck onto the stretcher. The young man leaned over the wounded cop and whispered, "Why?"

Chuck just said, "Merry Christmas boy ... and you too, George, and thanks for everything."

"Well, looks like you got one doozy of a break there. That ought to solve some of your problems."

George went into the back room and came out with a box. He pulled out a ring box. "Here you go, something for the little woman I don't think Martha would mind. She said it would come in handy some day."

The young man looked inside to see the biggest diamond ring he ever saw. "I can't take this," said the young man "It means something to you."

"And now it means something to you," replied George. "I got my memories. That's all I need."

George reached into the box again. An airplane, a car and a truck appeared next. They were toys that the oil company had left for him to sell. "Here's something for that little man of yours."

The young man began to cry again as he handed back the $150 that the old man had handed him earlier.

"And what are you supposed to buy Christmas dinner with? You keep that too," George said, "Now git home to your family."

The young man turned with tears streaming down his face. "I'll be here in the morning for work, if that job offer is still good."

"Nope. I'm closed Christmas day," George said. "See ya the day after."

George turned around to find that the stranger had returned. "Where'd you come from? I thought you left?"

"I have been here. I have always been here," said the stranger. "You say you don't celebrate Christmas. Why?"

"Well, after my wife passed away, I just couldn't see what all the bother was. Puttin' up a tree and all seemed a waste of a good pine tree. Bakin' cookies like I used to with Martha just wasn't the same by myself and besides I was gettin' a little chubby."

The stranger put his hand on George's shoulder. "But you do celebrate the holiday, George. You gave me food and drink and warmed me when I was cold and hungry.
The woman with child will bear a son and he will become a great doctor.
The policeman you helped will go on to save 19 people from being killed by terrorists. The young man who tried to rob you will make you a rich man and not take any for himself. "That is the spirit of the season and you keep it as good as any man."

George was taken aback by all this stranger had said. "And how do you know all this?" asked the old man.

"Trust me, George. I have the inside track on this sort of thing. And when your days are done you will be with Martha again."

The stranger moved toward the door "If you will excuse me, George, I have to go now. I have to go home where there is a big celebration planned."

George watched as the old leather jacket and the torn pants that the stranger was wearing turned into a white robe. A golden light began to fill the room.

"You see, George ... it's My birthday. Merry Christmas."

George fell to his knees and replied, "Happy Birthday, Lord."

My Pretty Doll

My pretty doll sold. I am so tickled and flattered that someone found her in my store and purchased her. I removed her out of my Etsy shoppe. I will miss seeing her. I had her sitting on top of a large fruit basket in the living room. I won't be making another one anytime soon. I put my eBay store on vacation for the next couple of days. I need to get some things in order here and help Santa get ready for Christmas :)

Primitive Star Bowl Fillers Ornies

Old Man Winter

Old man winter is here! It is so windy and cold outside now... I just went out to get some wood to put in our woodstove and it is chilly to say the least. Schools are delayed here tomorrow by two hours because it is supposed to dip down to zero with the wind chill. This summer, hubby and I bought rubber moulding to redo our camper ends. Our camper is a hybrid and the ends fold down and canvas tents cover our fold down beds. We bought several types of moulding to see what worked best and decided to keep the smaller moulding to redo our doors. What a difference it has made during these colder months. Stay warm dear friends and snuggle up on the couch with some hot chocolate and a good book or with your little one :)

Christmas Inflatables

Santa is stuck in the igloo... his feet are moving as if he was struggling to get out. LOL! This is the infamous inflatable that hubby was setting up when he sprained his foot and lower ankle stepping off of the sidewalk. His foot is perfectly fine now, but he had to stay off of it for 48 hours. We were fortunate that he had no breaks. I don't know if inflatables are popular where you live, but here in WV, people LOVE them. If they run out of room in their yards, they put them on their porch roof!
Here is my favorite one... We got this one 3 years ago...

Since hubby picked out the igloo, the kids picked out this one...

This is our side porch. The garland has white lights in it. The wind has played havoc on the bows, mini flag and even the candy canes :)

I love our old picket fence... needs to be painted, but painting is good for the soul. (Remind me of this in the spring when I am complaining about having to paint LOL)

Meet "Bear Bear". We bought him 14 years ago. He has a light inside and has greeted us with a gift on our porch every year...

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! We are hoping for snow... even a few flakes would be great :0) xox

500 Million Problems For Madame Secretary



Published in the New York Post on December 19, 2008
Now that Bill Clinton has released the list of his 205,000 donors who have given close to $500 million to his library and foundation, it is clear why he resisted releasing the list while his wife was running for president.

Now, compelled by the Obama transition team to make it public as a condition of his wife's appointment as secretary of state, it becomes clear that the list is a virtual encyclopedia of conflicts of interest for the husband of a senator - to say nothing of the husband of an incoming secretary of state.

Particularly troubling are the massive donations from Arab governments in the Middle East.

Pardon us for looking such generous gift horses in the mouth, but it is hard to imagine so many governments, monarchs and businessmen in the Middle East giving money unless it was with some hope of a political return. Will that return now come with the appointment of Sen. Clinton as secretary of state?

How can Hillary Rodham Clinton mediate and negotiate conflicts in the Middle East impartially when her husband's library and foundation - over which he has total control - have been bankrolled by the very nations with whom she must negotiate?

The list reveals another key center of conflicts of interest in Kazakhstan, the former Soviet republic, now home to some of the world's greatest mineral deposits and ruled by a corrupt dictator, Nursultan Nazarbayev, who, according to The New York Times, has all but quashed political dissent.

Bill Clinton visited Kazakhstan and met with its president on Sept. 6, 2005, accompanied by Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra.

Soon after, Giustra was awarded a highly lucrative contract to mine uranium there. Now, lo and behold, Frank Giustra turns up having given the library and foundation between $10 million and $25 million and the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative of Canada gave $1 million to $5 million more.

And Clinton got $1 million to $5 million from Lakshmi Mittal, the fourth-wealthiest person on the Forbes billionaire list and a member of the Foreign Investment Council in Kazakhstan.

In addition, Clinton further fished in troubled waters by taking $1 million to $5 million from Victor Pinchuk, the son-in-law of the controversial former president of the Ukraine.

Given the complexities of US policy toward the former Soviet republics in Central Asia, it is hard to see how this massive and incestuous relationship cannot but complicate Hillary's independence.

One of the largest donors to the library and foundation was UNITAID, an international organization largely controlled by France, which donated more than $25 million. And the conflicts of interest are not all just foreign. Corporate bailout recipients and recipient wannabes donated to the Clinton fund. They include AIG, Lehman, Merrill, the Citi Foundation and General Motors.

And, almost as an afterthought, the list reveals a donation of at least $250,000 from Denise Rich, presumably in return for her ex-husband's presidential pardon.

How could a US senator possibly serve dispassionately while her husband was collecting money from these donors on this kind of scale? And how could we have almost elected a president without realizing these conflicts existed? And how on earth can a secretary of state function with these conflicts hanging over her head?

Oh Christmas Tree...

This is last year's pic, but it looks the same every year. I haven't taken any this year yet, but wanted to post a pic of our family room Christmas tree. It is my favorite of the two trees we decorate because it has handmade ornaments from the kids when they were little and sentimental ornaments from friends. I made the quilted ball ornaments on the tree years ago with a matching quilted tree skirt out of the same material. I hope this finds you well and happy and ready for Christmas.

Sunny Day Here on the Mountain ~

Good afternoon ~ Today we had a 2 hour delay. We got a little sleet and snow last evening and thought for sure it would really amount to something after listening to the weather channel talk about a weather advisory until 11 am today. Shortly after the ice started falling, it changed to rain. To be safe, we had a two hour delay today and that is ALWAYS a welcome pleasure, as we get to sleep in and take our time going to the bus stop. I hope this finds you all warm and cozy with a nice hot cup of your favorite tea or coffee in your hand xox

Do You Cover Your Camper?

When we first started camping, we had a wonderful small popup that slept 6 people. We enjoyed it so much, that we sold it and purchased a larger camper. The difference is this one sleeps 8 and doesn't fit into our garage AND it has the all important tiny shower and toilet... the luxuries that we did not have with our popup. We were able to winter our popup inside our garage. Hubby researched on the net for information regarding the pros and cons of covering your camper. We did read a few valuable tips that included NOT to use a tarp or a cover that was not breathable. If you cover your camper with something other than a regular camper cover, you may create a mold problem, as there must be air circulation with your cover. The other valuable tip we found was to wait until the last possible moment to cover your camper and uncover it as soon as the ice and snow are no longer a threat. We also talked with a service technician at Camping World and he said that they had to redo many camper tops that were not cared for and covered. So, we purchased the cover for approximately 200.00 on eBay. Last year we looked like Lucy and Ricky Ricardo trying to get that huge cover up and over and around the camper using ladders and rakes and whatever worked. This year my DH came up with a better plan. He tied the straps on the cover to an extension cord and tossed them over the camper... worked like a charm! I had to get upon the ladder with the rake to lift the cover over the ac unit, but other than that, it was MUCH easier this way than last year. He called himself McGyver. LOL!! Happy camper covering!

I am listing these folk art dolls on eBay tonight. It is so hard for me to find time to craft, and I love making these dolls. A friend of mine gave me this pattern months ago. I made several of them with different fabrics.

USPS Price Increase January 18th

Shipping Services January 18 Pricing Change

On January 18 prices for Express Mail, Priority Mail, Parcel Select, Parcel Return Service, Global Express Guaranteed, Express Mail International, Priority Mail International, and M-Bags change. As always, we do not impose fuel surcharges, hidden surcharges, or surcharges for residential or Saturday delivery.

The move to January price changes for shipping services is consistent with industry standards and provides a clear picture of the affordable services we offer. Highlights for domestic shipping services include new Commercial Plus pricing, with up-front discounts for high-volume Express Mail and Priority Mail users. On average, Commercial Plus prices for Express Mail are 14.5 percent less than retail prices; Priority Mail Commercial Plus prices average 7 percent less. We are also introducing a new, smaller Priority Mail flat-rate box. The new box is priced the same as the flat-rate envelope and provides a great option for customers sending smaller items that require sturdy packaging and the convenience of flat rate pricing.

Prices for Express Mail and Priority Mail are designed to maintain the Postal Service’s competitive position as the best shipping value in the market, especially for packages weighing less than 5 pounds. The new prices also make Parcel Select, our “last mile” ground product, an even better value for high-volume shippers. For international mailers, Global Express Guaranteed, Express Mail International and Priority Mail International are the best value in global shipping.

Beautiful ODD Day ~

Today we had to run to town and our weather was a bit odd to say the least. It was in the 50s today with drizzle. As we passed over the Shenandoah River, there was a fog so thick over it, that you could not see the river. It followed the river as far as you could see and was above the bridge. If I had a camera and could multi task, I would have taken a picture. It was beautiful. So, our weather station is telling us now that towards the end of the week, our warmer weather is going to turn our rain to icy conditions. Of course, this will happen when we are snoozing and will have to wait up and watch our local channel for school delays and closings. We love the snow when we are all home. We have round plastic saucers that we slide down our front yard on. It has a slight slope and is fun to slide down. I hope you had a blessed day :)

eBay Shipping Tips

I sold a flag bunting and was quickly reminded of my carelessness in weighing my items and had to revise my listing. Many times, you can weigh an item and it may be right under the weight of 13 oz. or 1 lb., however, when you consider the weight of a priority mail box, it will easily put your item over a lb., which means you must charge for 2 lbs. The same goes for an envelope. You must remember to consider the weight of your tissue paper, thank you notes and the envelope itself when weighing your items.

EBay has currently made the rule that you must list your shipping information in your auction listing. I have always done this because I want my buyer to know exactly what their shipping will be for the product in which they are purchasing. Because of eBay's new search engine, we are easily found by the buyer if our combined shipping weight and item price is one of the lowest listed. Having the lowest shipping and item price searched will place your listing at the top, if it is auction listing format.

If you offer free shipping to your buyers, your items will get more exposure and if you are a power seller, your final value fees are reduced during a limited time. Many buyers forego this option because what happens is the item price is raised, which will increase your listing fee. For example, if your item is 14.99 and your shipping is 5.05, you will be charged a listing fee for 14.99. If you offer free shipping and must raise your price to include shipping, you will have to pay the higher listing fee to eBay. Is it a good trade off? It may be if you use lower priced items to offer free shipping for.

Don't forget to make your items presentable when your buyer opens up their box or envelope from you. I purchase inexpensive tissue paper to line the box with and wrap my items in tissue paper and sometimes put raffia around them and I always include a handwritten personal thank you. Everyone enjoys a warm fuzzy and your buyers will appreciate opening up their items as if they were gifts. If you can afford to purchase items to drop in their box as a token of appreciation, be careful to choose lightweight freebies, or you will find yourself paying higher shipping if it tips the scale over what you are charging the buyer.

I hope my tips have helped you and I'll try to post more tips in the future. I enjoy sharing what I have learned to sell successfully on eBay over the last four years with anyone that would love to learn.

Cyber Monday

Today is proclaimed as "Cyber Monday". For me, much of my shopping is on the internet and I love WalMart's free site to store shipping option when shopping on their website. I think we are finished shopping for each other. I didn't purchase anything on sale today, besides shopping for a few gifts on eBay, but I did purchase a car seat booster at a great price.

For those of you with more than one vehicle and only having one car seat that you have to move from one car to another, you know that it is difficult at times to say the least, especially when your hands are frozen and you have to cram the seat belt behind this and that and adjust it just right... Or how about when you get ready to go somewhere and you have JUST enough time to get there and you forgot that you needed to move the car seat? I know... I am blessed to have this as a simple worry in my life :0) Regardless, it was time to start shopping for a booster seat anyway. I found a really cute one at a great price at WalMart.

It was a $50 Graco and it will grow with her into a booster seat. Her other car seat does not have that capability, but a simple booster will suffice when she is large enough to have one. I thought this was a really great price and recommend it to those of you who have children that are not quite ready for a booster, but will soon and for any of you who will be getting a little Christmas money from Santa to purchase a seat for a second or third car.

Did you get any wonderful deals this Cyber Monday?
