NEWSLETTER #176                                                                         December  2018

“Presents for All” 


It is that month of the year, where I need to make sure I am somewhat “DC” - (December Correct) for all of our Classmates.  Now with that being said and I hope I don’t forget any Holiday Celebrations: Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Feliz Navidad, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Dun Che Lao Ren and Festivus for the rest of us. I want to wish you all the very best, during your respective holiday periods...  be safe, enjoy your holiday time with family and friends.

Just a reminder, so that everyone can enjoy the Holiday Seasons.  Bonita and I are going to keep the December, January and February Newsletters short.  Shorter in quantity, but will continue to match the high level of quality we try to attain each and every month. 

Finally, a short note of explanation about the last five months of “Political Information.”   I must admit, it was a very interesting reading and study period for me.  Each and every one of the respective five months was an eye opener.  I truly hope, all Classmates who contributed political knowledge were able to make an intelligent selection at the voting booth...  thank you, a great five months!

Our Thoughts and Prayers are with all of you that have gone, (and are going through), the fires that have plagued California from the north to the south.  BE SAFE.

[Go with it, some great tips]

•        If you can start the day without caffeine,
•        If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
•        If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
•        If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
•        If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
•        If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
•        If you can conquer tension without medical help,
•        If you can relax without alcohol,
•        If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
•        Then You Are Probably...The Family Dog!
And You Thought I Was Going To Get All Spiritual:
•        Handle every stressful situation like a dog - if you can’t eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away!
