Celebrate 2011 and a Grand Toast to the Giveaway Winner!






All thing beautiful
All things true
All creatures on earth

Sing peace to you



The cardinal call
From a tree’s bare limb
Peace, say the words
Of his evening hymn







Whales sing to each other
All nightlong
Peace, say the words
Of their deep blue song





The silence of deer
In a field of snow
Is their song of peace
For all we know



The wolf on the hill
The swan on the wing
Are loud to the ear
But listen, they sing….



Peace to you & All the Best in 2011!

Hi Karena

Happy New Year From Southern California.

Don't forget to watch the 122nd Rose Parade on New Year's Day coming from Pasadena, California...only 30 miles from The Old Geezer's home :-) If you miss the live telecast, I'm sure there will be lots of reruns through out the day.

No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy today, mix good cheer with friends today enjoy it and bless God for it. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Hi Karena,

Thanks so much for dropping by. I really enjoyed hearing from you. I agree-the fondue pot is, in my opinion, mostly useful for retro-decorative purposes. I finally got rid of it...last year..

Have a great year!
