Counting our blessings

Each year at this time, we focus for just a little while on all we have to be thankful for. It gets sandwiched in somewhere between the Thanksgiving sale of the year, the message to shop, buy, 6-25 Page 4A.inddsave, spend money and eat as much as you can.

Centuries ago, a group of people who came to this country ill-prepared and ignorant somehow survived. Many died before the first year was completed, and all suffered hunger and cold.

Continuing leg problems

Fact of the matter: Every morning when I get out of bed, my legs hurt.

6-25 Page 4A.inddThe spot that has been on my leg for more than a year now has other spots to keep it company. Now I’m wearing leg braces to stop the spots from starting to bleed.

So after a night of sleeping in these leg braces, my legs are sore.

The good news is that for the past few days there have not been any new spots bleeding, and the older ones are finally healing. But until they heal completely, I will have to deal with pain.

Fortunately, my niece Rebecca has just finished getting her nursing degree, so she’s been coming by daily to change my bandage. She’s a lot better than my mother, who seems disgusted by the sores on my leg.

The first is a 4.8-mill property tax increase to borrow another $5.8 million each year for building needs, and the second is an 8.5-mill property tax increase over the next five years to fund two extra employee pay raises, more technology spending and boosting supplies. In total, it adds up

So the Thanksgiving feast has been eaten, the company has departed, the house is a shambles and you don’t feel like cooking.

You have options — freeze your leftovers in usable portions, go out to eat or recycle the leftovers into totally new meals.

Although it’s wonderful on Thanksgiving, nobody wants to repeat the same meal over and over
