A good night's sleep, chocolate, the happiness and satisfaction of sharing on AgingCare forum. Does anyone have some favorite things to think about? Yes, this phrase is from the song in the movie "The sound of Music". My husband and I often resort to using movie lines and song to improve communication. We were the only two in a gathering of people who heard the background music playing. We both had the same (cassette tape/CD). A connection bringing two people together. To this day, we crack up when one uses a simple movie line to make a serious point.
SO, What is one of your favorite movie line, some of your favorite things?

Despite it being the coldest part of winter I can't help but smile whenever I hear the little chickadees at my neighbour's feeders.

Black cap, merry chap
Little chickadee!
Nuts and fat he likes to eat,
Upside down and on his feet,
And he sings so bright and gay
On the cold and wintry days
Chick-a-dee-dee, chick-a-dee-dee, chick-a-dee-dee, chickadee!

Practically perfect in every way.
A line from Mary Poppins.
I use it as a joke to myself when I “know how everything should be”.

Before you speak, say "Is it necessary, is it helpful and how will it be interpreted by the receiver?"

“Don't Just

Don't just learn, experience.
Don't just read, absorb.
Don't just change, transform.
Don't just relate, advocate.
Don't just promise, prove.
Don't just criticize, encourage.
Don't just think, ponder.
Don't just take, give.
Don't just see, feel.
Don’t just dream, do. 
Don't just hear, listen.
Don't just talk, act.
Don't just tell, show.
Don't just exist, live.” 
― Roy T. Bennett

I Love Lucy Christmas Special followed by an hour of Dick Van Dyke! And I love crab dip too! Don't forget some scallions.

Pam: That is correct! You may as well not make the hot crab dip if you're not using Maryland jumbo lump crab meat. Old Bay---they put that stuff on EVERYTHING! Cardboard---that's funny.

LLama you are so right about Md crab meat. We Marylanders KNOW that any other crab meat is inferior! And god bless Old Bay!! Your recipe sounds like mine, but I often bake it, with some mild cheese on top. Not too many extras,,we love to taste the crab. I swear I could eat it on cardboard and I'd still love it!!

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas....

The nerve of those Whos!
Inviting me down there, on such short notice!
Even if I wanted to go my SCHEDULE Wouldn't allow it!
One o'clock, Wallow in self pity
Four thirty, Stare into the abyss
Five o'clock, Solve world hunger; Tell no one
Five thirty, Jazz-ercise
Six thirty, dinner with me. I can't cancel that again!
Seven o'clock, wrestle with my self-loathing...
I'm booked!
Well if I bump the loathing up to nine I could still be done in time to lay in bed and stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness...
But what would I wear!!

Schedule look a little familiar to caregivers everywhere?

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play, 
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men. 

I thought how, as the day had come, 
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th'unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men. 

And in despair I bowed my head: 
'There is no peace on earth, ' I said 
'For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.' 

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: 
'God is not dead, nor doth He sleep; 
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail, 
With peace on earth, good will to men.'

Till, ringing, singing on its way, 
The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime, 
Of peace on earth, good will to men. 

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Frazzled: It is! And if you live in Maryland, it's best to get MARYLAND crab meat. A double batch fits well to the top of a small crock pot.

LL, I will have to try making the crab dip. It sounds delicious!

Saltines dipped in chocolate half way.
Hot crab dip - one lb. Jumbo lump crabmeat, little milk, 2 blocks 8 oz. cream cheese, a little Old Bay spice in small crock pot - can be doubled - delicious!

Mmmmm....Trader's holiday goodies. And I love Ferraro Rochers too much to ever be offended by their marketing!!

"Mr Ambassador you are spoiling us..."

Ferrero Rocher make me sad. Through work, I got to know the company a bit. The quality control is outstandingly good and the products' ingredients are first rate.

What's sad is that their marketing and merchandising have been so crashingly terrible that their products have become exactly what you do not give to your friends unless either you are being wittily ironic or you do in fact intend to offend them.

Another thing that sounds good right now is some Ferrero Rocher chocolates. Yum!

Everything is good from my favorite T.Joes.

Even better was STROOPWAFEL
A thin Dutch Caramel Waffle Cookie.

I collect the tins of various cookies. Not a collector type person, but I love the Swedish, Dutch, Norwegian patterns.

Cookies are ALL GONE.
