  • The marathon holiday season starts with getting stuffed at Thanksgiving, continues with buying presents and decorating which culminates with Christmas, then ends with the New Year’s celebration. With the holidays now over, our waistlines are bulging, not our wallets, and our lives have returned to “normal.”

    Pleasant memories linger on of parties, celebrations, and attending church or temple. By now we have returned those gifts that don’t fit or are the wrong color and have stored the things we will “re-gift.”

  • Did you get a new puppy for Christmas? Is it a little daunting to try to think of all the things that you need to do for your new pet? Well here is a short list that will go a long way toward keeping your little one healthy and happy.

  • Friends of Freedom Public Library invite Corridor residents to the annual meeting Saturday, Jan. 17, at 1 p.m. in the library meeting room, because we are going to have a fashion show.

    The immediate business, voting in the new officers, will be attended to first as required in the by-laws. Candidates will be presented to the membership: Patricia (Pat) Babski, president; Kermit Clark, vice president; Joan Richards, secretary; Janet Wise, treasurer. After nominations are heard and accepted from the floor, voting will proceed.

  • Here it is, another New Year, and for most of us we are glad the old one has passed into history. Gone is the craziness of the holiday season and its excesses. We are left with the stark reality of the times and how we will  manage our lives in the coming year.

    In the Jewish tradition the whole celebration of a New Year is completely different from the secular one. There is no kissing of strangers at midnight or the wearing of funny hats. Nobody gets so drunk as to need designated drivers and nobody has hangovers the next day.

  • Bob Waite rhymes with stained glass. Well, of course it doesn’t, but 50 years ago Bob Waite did discover stained glass making in his first and only class during an adult education program at Canton, in way, way Upstate New York. From then on he just read a lot of books, corrected a lot of mistakes and bandaged a lot of cut fingers.

    Ironically Bob wound up teaching stained glass at the Brasher Falls, N.Y. high school some years later.

  • There was a delightful response to my Sadie column. Even Sadie remarked, “Did I do all those things?” God love her. Thanks so much to all who called and e-mailed such nice compliments.

    The featured group in this column is the Billiard Boys. They have been very patient, especially because their picture was taken weeks ago.

    The “boys” have an 8-ball bunch, who play from 2:30 to 5 p.m. This is “open billiards” and is played Monday through Friday. Residents and non-residents are welcome but no one under the age of 18.

  • Yesterday, on New Year’s Day, many probably got up to a spouse saying, “Wake up and smell the roses; the Rose Bowl parade is on.” After a night of celebrating the coming of 2009, perhaps with Four Roses, viewing a parade with its profusion of all kinds of flowers could be the best way to recover from a hangover.

    Today we’ll parade a few puns down the Alley – and see if any of them float your boat.

  • The holidays are a time for fun, food, decorations and activities with friends and families. While you enjoy the season keep in mind that many of our winter habits and holiday traditions pose potential hazards to our pets.

    Here are some tips to keep in mind to insure your pets stay healthy and happy during the holidays.

    In this season of overeating you need to keep your pet on a normal diet. Even one meal of greasy, spicy or fatty foods can give your pet severe indigestion and/or diarrhea. So no leftovers for Rover, no matter how much he begs.
