The Festival of Lights Begins Tonight


Repost 2010

In honor of Hanukkah here is Adam Sandler’s third version of the Hanukkah song. I remember the first time I heard the original song, and laughing so much. Also Hanukkah is one of the only words that rhymes with Veronica, which made me feel quite special.  It has become somewhat of a theme song for the holiday and I love that Adam Sandler had the talent to make it so.  Enjoy the latest version, it does not disappoint.

Ode to Winter Time


My Perfect Winter Day

Ski slopes braved with red faces and frozen toes.

Colorful pajamas worn moments after being unwrapped.

Blankets strewn around the fireplace.

A Christmas Story” reliably on.

Lazy long supper to warm the bones and replenish strength

For the next day’s adventures.

Snowboards, Skis, Skates and Snowmobiles just waiting

To glide through the fresh snow giving the rider a thrill

Some lovely quotes.

Gratitude is the sign of noble souls. ~ Aesop

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. ~ Mark Twain

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention. ~ Oscar Wilde

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, be safe and enjoy all the yummy food.  veronicaromm

We The People…


When I was in the 8th grade I had to commit this to memory. When I taught school I made the kids memorize it as well, though that week they hated me outwardly, they all managed to do it. I hope they still recall it as I do, because for me it was the first time I understood what this country stood for. I was so young then and now though I am somewhat jaded, I still feel patriotic reading it. I am an immigrant and I am proud to be an American.

 

 
We the People of the United States,
in Order to form a more perfect Union,
establish Justice,
insure domestic Tranquility,
provide for the common defence,
promote the general Welfare,
and secure the Blessings of Liberty
to ourselves and our Posterity,
do ordain and establish
this Constitution for the
United States of America.

 

           Happy 4th America
