Family gatherings for the holidays
Travis Thomas of Birmingham, Ala., visited with his parents, Jim and Martha Thomas, for the Christmas holidays.
Jean Ann Jones had a house full for Christmas. The C. Jones family of Birmingham, Ala., Christy Jones of Jackson and Lee Ann Priebe and family of Dallas were all of her holiday guests. There is nothing better than family gathering for the holidays!
Congratulations to Cathryn (Miller) and Drew Richey, who exchanged wedding vows Saturday at the First Presbyterian Church in Holly Springs. A small gathering of family and close friends were in attendance to wish the young couple well on their adventure in life together.

In the new year - be alive!
Happy New Year! It’s 2013 and we are lucky to be alive! Are you filled with New Year’s resolutions or are they like tree ornaments, something to be packed up for a year or something to be broken? Or are they as old fashioned as Betty Boop? The arrival of the New Year is a wonderful opportunity for self-improvement for renewal, or adventure for what the unknown will reveal to us one day at a time.
My Christmas was wonderful! It even included a beautiful new baby girl, Francesca. Fifty-five of my family came to dinner and 28 couldn’t or didn’t come. Another year means I’m a year older, which is good considering the alternative. It means that I don’t have a set bedtime, or why thaw when you can eat out, or your secrets are safe with me because I can’t remember them, and my old clothes are back in style. Old age means decaffeinated cappuccino, Paul Newman was my contemporary; I can binge if I want to; bell-bottoms are gone for good; saving the bone to make soup; saving sacks, I might need them; the collected works of Cary Grant.
One of the bonuses that come at the end of your life is knowing your grandchildren, then they have children and you get to know your great-grandchildren. It is amazing how times have changed. We used to eat dinner at home and went out to a movie. Now we go out to dinner and come home for a movie. We marvel at the wonders of each new day.
They say you are as old as you feel, so feel young and think young. Take care of yourself, eat right, sleep enough, and be absolutely sure you take your selenium every day. It has been discovered that everybody who has cancer has no selenium in his system. Selenium is a cancer preventative and actually is a poison that destroys cancer cells.
Selenium won’t cure cancer if you already have it, but take it before you have cancer so you won’t get it. Doctors are experts at medicine but seldom study diet. Try it; you’ll be glad you did.
On this note, have a happy and prosperous New Year! Include Jesus; He is the insurance policy that will get you to Heaven.
