It is Friday, November 30, 2018, and Teischan (12) is all set for the Advent. She has been counting the days for weeks! This afternoon she set up her old advent calendars from years past — along with the two, from this year, containing chocolates.

I got her a real nice wooden advent calendar today BUT, alas, she didn’t like it! So, I have put it up for sale. She, however, wants the money.

Another gala extravaganza to commemorate the GREAT Nelson Mandela’s centennial — i.e., ‘Mandela 100‘. It is, as it should be, in Johannesburg, South Africa. So, not something that most of us and pop down for.

But, MSNBC is broadcasting it, starting at 9pm, on Sunday, December 2, 2018.  Definitely worth watching, recording or both. I plan to record it.

Did not want you to miss it.

Somebody Sent Me A Box Of “Hope’s Cookies” — And They Are Extremely Nice.

Had never heard of them until this delightfully festive box came via UPS today. The included card did NOT say who it was from. Just thanked me for my services.

Though I have abstained from eating any cookies for over 5 years, I had to break off and try a small sampling of two cookies: the white chocolate Macadamia nut and the oatmeal raisin. They were outstanding. Teischan who sampled two cookies gave them two thumbs up.

I wish I knew who was kind enough to send them to me. Whoever it was THANK YOU. That was very nice. Much appreciated, especially by Teischan.
