A little story about St. Nicholas
There are many legends about Saint Nicholas, but all these legends have a common point, namely generosity.
From historical sources it is known that Saint Nicholas was born and lived between the second and third centuries after Christ in Asia Minor, but the celebration of 6 December is actually the day of his death in 352 after Christ.
History also says he has inherited an impressive fortune from his parents, but he did not benefit from his generosity being out of the ordinary, sharing it with the bitter and poor, and making them happy too.
The legend also says that he disguises himself in order not to be recognized and to enter the sacking houses in the houses of the poor, leaving them gifts, clothes, food and money.
The most popular legend about St. Nicholas tells us that entering a man’s house that had…

For one thing they caught me at the end of the month and so there was very little left in account and two I had considerably more than that in my secret hiding place that I keep for emergencies. Yes I miss it, but it would have been gone if my car broke down and I didn’t have enough here to cover it in my emergency stash.
My son was happy to see me taking it positively for a change and not moaning or groaning and beating myself up. Like I said the same thing would have happened if I had an emergency. Those people will get their payback as what goes around comes around.
I believe what I need will be provided by God if it comes to that. I am living on very little and even saving some so in a few months at the most I will…

The colour of my words
Is an ever-changing hue.
It shows what I am thinking
In the things I say and do.
Bright and cheery colours
Of Yellow and of Gold,
Mean my spirit’s lifting
My stories will be bold.
But when the colours deepen
To Purple and to Red,
Then my story changes
The tales may conjure dread.
Blues and greens are colours
That suggest a kinder tale.
I pray I’ll do an awesome job
Of which you could avail!
Black’s a colour on it’s own
A Darkness it implies.
Should I write a missive
When on evil it relies?
Join with me I pray thee,
And wander through my words.
Enjoy the rainbow I employ
With all those nouns and verbs.
Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. Today I wanted to share one of the recipes I made for Thanksgiving, a banana cream pie! It’s a bit untraditional, but I had made apple, pecan, blueberry, and coconut in the past. Banana seemed like a delicious option, and it was! Here’s how to make banana cream pie:
Banana Cream Pie Recipe-
Ingredients (for the crust):
12 sheets graham crackers
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon (optional but gives the crust a wonderful flavor)
7 tablespoons butter
For the filling:

1/2 cup sugar
5 tablespoons flour
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
a pinch of salt
For the topping:
1-2 cups of whipped cream (this depends on how much cream you like on top of your pie).
2-3 tablespoons powdered sugar (the more cream, the more sugar you add)
a splash of vanilla

I fell for a phone scam today. They spoofed the Social Security Number and so it came up that way on my phone since I have them in the phone. The number actually was SSA. They told me that my social security number was frozen due to suspicious activity. (And I just had to have my medicare card, the new one, reissued because it was frozen by SSA due to my address and then reissued). All this led me to believe that it really was SSA and they told me I was in deep trouble and needed a criminal lawyer. All my accounts were to be frozen that used my social security number etc.
Although they didn’t get my info, they did get the little bit of money left in my account, well almost all of it. There wasn’t alot and that is one of the good things about being…
