Count, count, and recount! Uh-oh, did you think I was going to talk about our presidential election? Not a chance! That show has been rehashed enough. I'm talking about the number of days left until Christmas.

Isn't it amazing how the days just sort-of zoom by at an incredible pace? I think it is a reminder of just how precious this time on earth really is.

And, as precious as it is, sometimes patience pays off!

IT'S FINALLY OVER!!!!!

Speaking of recounts, the contest has finally come to end. Regardless of how you feel about the outcome, there must be some relief that it is over! Anytime there is change or turmoil, something different from the norm, it upsets our routine. It is tough to get back on track when we must divert from our regular paths.

Nobody likes change except a baby with a wet diaper!
We do learn from change though. One day we will look back at the chaos of the past month or so and reap the benefits of what was learned.

We are learning a great deal these days too. We've asked for your comments (both good and bad) and you've responded (with both good and bad!). We are taking what we have learned and are taking action to implement your suggestions.

I must admit though, that it has not been easy. It's that "change thing". It has not been easy to let go of past practices, but we can see the benefits and some of you have told us you like the changes!

With that in mind, keep the comments coming! We have thick skin and we can take it. (We accept compliments too!)
