Today Casablanca premiered in 1942, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was published in 1865 and the Price is Right premier in 1956.
Myra & Phil closed on The Stone Manse this week. They are in the process of moving in as we speak, how depressing, I HATE moving. I don’t think I’d move even if someone was willing to pack my stuff up and move it. Obviously I’m kidding about the depressing thing, how exciting. Good luck Myra, Phil & Alex.
The Trib is having their yearly Operation Santa Claus, their goal is to provide a nutritious holiday meal to 6,500 households, quite the goal. They’re packaging non perishable food items for the meal, plus a $10 gift certificate for the meat portion of the meal. They are taking donations at Operation Santa Claus c/o Trib Total Media, 622 Cabin Hill Drive, Greensburg, PA 15601 if you would like to help out.
Hartwood Acres has decked the mansion out for the holidays and are giving tours from ten a.m. until three p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon until four on Sundays. The price is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and teenagers and $2 for children. In the evening, also through January 9, they are having the annual Festival of Lights there also. It’s just over three miles of lighting displays. A word of warning, weekends and as we get closer to the holidays it gets quite packed. The money collected at the Festival of Lights goes to the Salvation Army’s Project Bundle Up, a fund raiser to help the less fortunate keep warm through the winter.
My “pre-lit” holiday tree is no longer pre-lit. I’ve spent almost 6 hours and I’m still not finished removing the old lights. I WILL finish tomorrow and hopefully will get the new lights on. I also want to get all the garland up, if not Saturday, definitely Sunday.
Moved all the the largest pieces of furniture out of the Parlor & Library, washed the floor and did my yearly paste waxing. I must say, this is the best job I’ve done with the past wax. The key is putting the correct amount of wax down, obviously, and I’m getting better at judging than and working the wax in. I’m quite happy with it. Next week, I plan on paste waxing the dining rooms.
