Most years are like that, Sherman A1.

Those of us on the Seniors group know that by now.
Revel in the good times, dismiss the bad as soon as possible.

"Usually a small amount"....

That was then - (I don't know when)-
and this is now.

I too have a problem family member, who causes much concern,

and there is still a certain amount of sibling rivalry among my four, though they are now all middle-aged.

I believe people's personalities are inborn, and we do our best to shape them, but there are limitations in what we can do.

I have to wonder how Mrs. Sebilius was elected Governor in KS

just a few yrs ago.
(I realize she married into a Republican family and maybe the name recognition helped.)

I would say new grandson and a wedding would make for a good year.

Congratulations! I may never have the pleasure of grandchildren, a heartache I don't dwell on, because it's beyond my control, and I am grateful for the family I have.

I'm glad for you the other daughter changed her mind. - Life is too short for ill will, but sometimes it happens, too.

All good wishes for 2015!

In which city or state did this incident take place?

What was the violation she was cited for?

Did you have a good year in 2014?

In the General Discussion a few are lamenting the year we're just finishing.
I actually had a good year, all things considered, as I wrote in my hastily put-together Christmas note.

In January and February I spent the months on the West coast of Florida in my son's condo. So very relaxing, with virtually no obligations, few phone calls, and, best of all, missed a cold snowy Midwest winter.

In May I ventured East to Gettysburg with adult son and daughter, toured the Battlefield and environs, as well as the Eisenhower Farm & Homestead. Visited with a seldom seen niece and her family.

In August, older son announced his engagement and forthcoming marriage in IL in Nov., and from then until wedding date, all attention focused on wedding details and coordinating with family arriving from across the nation. The wedding and all arrangements were beautiful - certainly the highlight of our year.

Sickness arrived to family members on Christmas Day, but we all got together on Dec. 27th, and it felt just like the Special Day.

So, I can't complain about 2014, and hope many here have pleasant memories as well. Looking forward to 2015.

Thank you for setting straight the misunderstanding so many have

re Papal infallibility.

I always find it distressing when this doctrine is improperly applied in debate or comment discussions.
If one does not accept the doctrine, fine, but please don't misapply it.

Certainly there has been that aspect in the US church hierarchy in recent

years, though there have always been a few who spoke for social justice, and many more clergy and laity who lived out the precepts
of the social doctrines. Sometimes we have to search them out and cling to those tenets more than ever.
