Christmas 2014

In No Ho every Christmas Eve there is a jolly Christmas truck with carolers that tours the streets in the early evening. Folks rush from their houses to greet the truck by singing with the carolers and wishing everyone a happy holiday season. Some walk behind the truck and others stay on the sidewalk taking pictures and saying hello and Merry Christmas to neighbors and friends. That's what the holiday is all about: spreading goodwill.

PJ Party: Moi, Gary, Stan, Vicki, Eduardo and Miguel

Inside Mike and Eduardo's colorfully decorated house, there's good food, good cheer and a whole lot of fun, especially watching classic movie musicals on their big screen TV. Always a great party and lots of good cheer with Stan, Gary, Vicki Pacifico, Sharon Michaels, who dropped by, and Eduardo and Michael themselves, who added joy to the proceedings by celebrating Eduardo's birthday with a cake and a song.

This year's Spanish Class Christmas Party was held at Vino Tapas and Wine Bar, Encino. Attending were Sr. Don, Linda & Jean, Markus, Hako, Dante, Donaco and Laura. Fun was had by all, and the food was scrumptious except for the paella. But, when we talked about it with the waiter he graciously removed it from our bill. Yeah, Bravo Vino Tapas and Alla!

Makes sense to me!!!!

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.
