Hell no. I will not go out into crowds, only to buy Chinese made junk (junk, as in crap...not junk as in a ship). I prefer to search out American made goods to give for Christmas. I get most of my gifts from

This year I am reading a book called The Millionaire Code for the second time. I kept telling myself "I CAN do it!" as a positive affirmation, since my subconscious tells me "no you can't".

The book's author said to look around your house and see if there is anything that you have that can be improved. It may be a million dollar idea.

Well, since I had a few extra empty coffee cans, I decided to go to Hobby Lobby and get red, green, black, and white glittery felt, glitter glue, sequined ribbon, and dress up those coffee CANS, and give them as crafty tokens of my appreciation for my friends and family. I am not a crafter, but as I started to make them, I got better ideas to decorate them in the holiday spirit. The best idea came from the bible. 2 Thessalonians 3:16 which says a lot about peace..

Just have fun, Peace and prosperity to you all.

For politically aware and activist people this is buy-nothing weekend. We used to celebrate it big-time in San Francisco, and I just saw it being promoted on facebook by Resurgence magazine in the UK.

I did it once..never again!! Last night in the KC area we went "people watching". At Best Buy there were dozens of tents, and plenty of people sitting around wrapped in blankets. Toys 'R Us was even worse. This was around 10pm. Crazy.

Nope! Not shopping...working. Besides, my shopping is done. After we ate yesterday, I wrapped some gifts even. It was a really good day.
