21 Favorite Holiday Movies

*Originally posted on this blog on 12.23.15

I simply love the holiday season. I am always excited about Christmas and everything about it. Of course, I always keep sight of the true meaning of Christmas, and should everyone else.

With all that being said, one of the many traditions I look forward to is watching Christmas movies with my family. Especially on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I also have to have a little eggnog...kicked up a notch with french vanilla ice cream and rum added.

It has been an honor to have President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle represent our country. I'm going to miss the Obamas when they leave the White House, as I will continue to state over and over and believe.

Book of the Month: [December 2016] - STALKING JACK THE RIPPER By Kerri Maniscalco

 photo 6A8D0A0C-F77A-4AF1-9C00-56846D970E85_zpsvoees5wx.jpeg

The book of the month selection for December is titled Stalking Jack the Ripper  by Kerri Maniscalco. I was instantly interested in choosing this novel as my next read simply by the title as well as the lure of the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper. It doesn't hurt that the book is presented by James Patterson who happens to be one of my favorite authors. I was also intrigued to pick up a debut novel. Debut reads are important to the writers as well. It is always interesting to see what is put forth in a writer's first effort.

This month's book pick, Stalking Jack the Ripper, sounds like one hell of a read. The story centers around a young woman who's interested in murders that are happening quite frequently. She begins to investigate and pours over the forensic evidence. Jeopardizing her safety and her life, she becomes involved in trying to solve the murders being committed by a serial killer. But will she get too close to the truth?

12.12.16: Trevor Noah Interviews President Barack Obama [Full Video]

I'm going to miss President Obama when his second term ends. Jesus take the wheel, because that thing that is allegedly the President-elect is a walking disaster. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows Trump did not win the election.
