  • A Dash of Class: Try a cookie exchange for variety

    Nora’s Note:  Two corrections from last week: The amount of margarine in the chocolate fantasy fudge recipe was supposed to be 1 ½ sticks of margarine or ¾ cup instead of 3 cups of margarine. Also, the headline failed to be changed from the previous week and was supposed to be “Getting Ready for Christmas.” Mistakes do happen; I just hope you didn’t try to make Mrs. Claycomb’s fudge with twice the amount of margarine.

    Winds in December might sound a bit chilly, but if they’re The Heartland Winds and it’s a holiday concert, you’ll likely want to take off your earmuffs so you can listen.
    The community-based wind ensemble will present its winter concert at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Historic State Theater.
    The concert is free and open to the public.
    Director Chuck Campbell said the program is titled “O’ Holy Night.”

  • Crafting a wish list

    By ROBERT VILLANUEVA

     

    Wish lists get harder every year.

    Not just for me and not just for Christmas.

    I think the older you get the fewer things you need that you don’t go out and get for yourself once you decide you need them. That makes buying gifts for parents particularly tricky.

    You know what I mean.

    Parents are always the first to tell you, “Don’t get me anything.”

    That’s because they always buy for themselves what they want as soon as they want it.

  • Dash of Class: Close to Christmas

    By NORA SWEAT

    Just a little over two weeks until Christmas Day, and I dare say many of you are starting to make goodies and putting them in tins for the holidays.

    Just last week I was at two holiday functions. One was a Christmas luncheon and the other a Christmas tea. Just this past Tuesday, I attended another Christmas luncheon with Cecilia Homemakers.

    Many of you have given me some new recipes or old recipes that have been discovered by others and others of you have introduced me to an easier way of making some sweets.

  • Farewell to a furry friend

    He came into her life as a young dog, first belonging to her son, who had always wanted a black lab named Vader.
    A lab golden retriever mix, he always had been an anomaly, afraid of water. He even sunk to a bottom of a pool once, requiring someone to jump in and rescue him. His swimming instincts never worked quite right.
    When her son was home from college one weekend they sat down for a friendly game of cards. As a joke, her son put Vader up as a bid during one hand. She won decidedly; in return Vader was hers for keeps.

  • Holiday classics abound

    bowsley@thenewsenterprise.com
    It’s time to dust off those Christmas movies — or flip to a cable channel playing them 24/7 — and get into the holiday spirit.
    Everyone tends to have a favorite this time of year. Here are a few of my suggestions.
    For the kids you can’t beat the classics.
    “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (1964), “Frosty the Snowman” (1969) and “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” (1970) can be caught on television this time of year.
