Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't sleep.
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned--the dark meat and white,
but I fought the temptation with all of my might.

Tossing and turning with anticipation,
the thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees.......
happy eating to all---pass the cranberries, please!

A Place To Rest
by Alison
God looked down on your body,
So tired from hanging on,
From a life that was overwhelming you,
And wanted back His son.
So he took away the air you breathe,
And gave you what was best,
A place to be at peace,
A final place to rest.
May you rest in peace my Internet friend!

A note from Bigsoxfan :

I received a reply from an email I sent awhile back to Glen Doutrich from his daughter Tami. Glen is in CHC and not doing well. She asks for anyone with something good to say, to drop a line in his last post. I'll miss his jokes and his banging away at the dysfunction which is the CNMI government. I'll always be waiting for the next installment of his Flashback series and the chance to buy him a drink, if only to hear him laugh. Cheers, Glen

Make sure to stop by and send Glen your well wishes, jokes & naughty pictures..he he!

Make Cupcakes Not War!

If I could be doing anything else in the world besides being an Insurance Agent right now, I would probably own my own Cupcake Bake Shop...and totally specialize in just making cupcakes! I Love love love making, decorating and eating..ha ha..cupcakes! I just wish I had more time in my schedule to bake..Last night on the Food Network they had the "Cupcake Challenge". I was pretty awesome! The guy I wanted to win didn't due to a technicality (his cupcake presentation didn't meet the required 3 feet in height). The judges really liked him too but he lost the $10,000.00 Grand Prize because he was 3 inches short.

This was one of the contestants that didn't win..her terracotta pot was made of cake..That was pretty cool.
This was the underwater coral scene I wanted to win. All the coral flowers are made of cupcakes which have been decorated to look like coral..I wish I had a better picture.
This was the winning entry, which was really really cool also! She has a dragon breathing down on the different pillars and instead of fire coming out of his mouth it was really cool flowers which were actually the top decorations of the cupcakes...

I love watching the Food Network Challenges..Do you? Which is your favorite?

Obama wins!

Our Harvest Carnival was a HUGE success with over 500 people in attendance throughout the night...There were free carnival games for all where if you win, you get tickets which you trade at the prize booth for some pretty awesome prizes. There was free entertainment all night long with bands from Life in the Son, CornerStone Church and of course our very own NCLC worship team on stage. There was a free bouncy house, face painting and children's corner where the kids could color and design their own bags for their candy..There was TONSSSSSSS of free candy and a .50 cent food booth were you could get a hot dog, drink, lumpia, coco, cupcakes, cookies and a whole lot more for .50 cents...I maned the prize booth the entire night and I had so much fun!!!!

The NCLC Worship Team sings a few songs for the crowd
Face Painting was a big HIT! Meowwww! Opps looks like the cat got locked up...Yes, we had a jail too...
