The holiday season is upon us…

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

It’s September, and many people are already planning their holiday gift giving. Every year is starts earlier. Businesses are putting out their Halloween gifts sooner and even before October 31st, big retailers like Wal-Mart already have Christmas stuff in their stores. It’s really the retailers who set the season. They try to outdo one another. But regardless of how early it starts, there’s almost that large percentage of gift givers who wait until the last minute. It’s their right of passage.

National Grandparent’s Day

Friday, September 5th, 2008

Sunday September 7th is National Grandparent’s Day. This is a wondeful idea. Grandparent’s sometimes lose out on receiving the respect and apprection they received all those years their kids were growing up. Grandparent’s are the unsug heroes. When you need a babysitter, grandma never says no. When you need a handyman around the house, grandpa wouldn’t hesitate to come over with his toolbox. Sometimes, it’s important to remember those who really mean the most.
