Merry Christmas and Happy Every Holiday!

Coming from a Scandinavian, Eastern European, Irish, Texan, Cuban, Mexican, Jewish, Christian, Agnostic Family, everyone, anyone who comes in peace is welcome here.

There is a bit of magic in this Season, the one that comes after fall where we celebrate all things before the deep winter comes and we reflect or brood until spring.

This is the time where we try on our spiritual selves and share ...

Hi All, thanks for the Halloween and 3 bunnies greetings. The chili recipe is in the archives if anyone still wants to try it.
