My Last Week

To celebrate the last week of every year, it has become to make it my most awesome chill-out week. Time to slow down and do some things that kept getting pushed down to the bottom of my “To Do List” or my “What To Do When You Don't Have Internet Access List”.

My son works for a local newspaper company and what is amazing about his job is that for years "the voices" have been saying that printed papers were going to be replaced by digital media. According to some statistic, the people in China read almost everything via their cell phones. Maybe so. But we live in the USA where there are still subscribers who walk out the front door of their house every morning and there had better be a newspaper on their front lawn or front porch or else!

Which leads me to the next thing that is nice about my son's job. Every now and then, he brings home the Sunday edition of a paper for me. Sometimes there are leftover copies that will get thrown into the trash anyway. Instead he gives them to me to be used for wrapping up trash and then throwing it into the garbage can. :)

Sometimes though, if leisure time permits, a few moments of time will be taken to read or skim through some of the articles and then trash the paper.

Using this post as my starting point, my last posts for 2015 will likely be a recap or rehash of information deemed “newsworthy” enough to appear in print in a hard copy issue of a newspaper. Hope you enjoy my EOY (end of year) findings.


Wish You A Great Week

I wish I had a "supplier" so that I could clip coupons and use the newspapers for other things.

There is nothing like the snap of a fresh newspaper on a Sunday morning and the sound of turning the pages while your are reading. I wanted to write for a small newspaper, but they did not have enough room with all the advertising they needed, but the editors liked what they read.
