Welcome to December! Who else had a white Thanksgiving last week? You could have fooled me into thinking it was Christmas when I looked out the window in the morning from my brother’s house in Ohio where my family spent the holiday. I was thankful I didn’t have to shovel the driveway! Judging from your tweets, you all had wonderful Thanksgivings.   Braving the mall with my boy http://t.co/8aGVXo7ZeD — Vera Sweeney (@VeraSweeney)... Read More

Happy Veteran’s Day, America! Like this young patriot we spotted on Fifth Ave. in Manhattan, ready to salute veterans as they marched by in the parade, we honor and celebrate everyone who has served this country.
