Wise Advice: Another List for Living as you Grow Older

Another List for Living as you Grow Older

  1. MONEY: It’s time to use the money you saved up. Use it and enjoy it. Don’t just keep it for those who may have no notion of the sacrifices you made to get it. Remember there is nothing more dangerous than a son or daughter-in-law with big ideas for your hard-earned capital.

Christmas Memories of a Little Boy in B.G….

– By Geoff Burrowes

My mother liked to laugh and that set the mood in our home!

To me, her eldest son, she was the most beautiful thing in the world. She was young and like all the members her family, the Learmonds, good looking. She had twinkling brown eyes and dark brown hair. And she loved Christmas!

Christmas in our home was special. It was a time of Santa Claus and a Christmas tree and coloured lights, treats such as fudge and black cake and boiled sweets.
