I Believe There Is A Real Santa Claus
But he doesn't operate or live on this planet. The real Santa Claus lives in "Christmas World." The first eternal world created by Jesus Christ.

There are many humans and aliens who are uptight about "magic" or "magical beings" on earth. At one time, there were efforts to brand this activity as witchcraft and ban them here. Efforts were made to reduce the factual truths of Christmas to childish fantasies. These efforts succeeded with some, but failed with many.

The symbols of Christmas are just tokens of that eternal reality that exists on the fringe of consciousness. Christmas returns with renewed vigor every year in the minds of children of all ages.

The NHL Dispute: A Hunk Of Coal For The Fans
It's hard to feel sympathy for aggrieved players who average over $800,000 a year. That's more than many of us make in a lifetime.

It still boils down to too many mediocre teams with too many mediocre players. There aren't enough good TV contracts in the U.S. to pay for these "gold-plated teams" and "gold-plated players."

Expansion of the NHL should have went to Europe where there's strong interest in the sport.(Do you remember the fiasco of the WHA?)

Hockey is a great game, but you have to give more to get back more.

Hockey fans have given lots of money and time to support this wonderful sport in North American. It's a shame that bad business decisions and greed are ruling the day, right now.

The Top Ten Lessons From Noah's Ark
1. Don't miss the boat. 2. Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done. 3. Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something big. 4. The Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals. 5. Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark. 6. When you're stressed, float awhile. 7. Remember that we are all in the same boat. 8. Speed isn't an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs. 9. Build your future on higher ground. 10. For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

Remembering Family And Friends At Christmas
Christmas is always a time of rememberance and nostalgia.

Like millions of others, my wife and I will be sending out Christmas cards to family and friends that we are thinking about.

We may not have talked to old friends in years, but usually, we feel a special fondness for them at this time.
