Today is Christmas Eve, Eve! (Is that a real thing?) My wife Megan and I are excited because our 3 children are at the “golden age” for Christmas, ranging from ages 1-9. To them, everything we do, every day this month, is magic. We even took care of our winter colds and runny noses before Santa comes this year. The kids are ecstatic because everything they’ve waited for all month is about to come true…and we know as parents it will be even more enjoyable for us as we get to watch their excitement when they wake up on Monday.
WHAT ARE YOU EXCITED FOR?
As the winter sets in (officially 2 days ago on the 21st), some of us look forward to winter sports, the beautiful white snow, or a break for the heat. But it’s easy to get down and feel dreary from the darker days ahead. Take a moment to find your biggest time or energy “vampires” and minimize the time you spend on them.

RETURN OF THE TYPEWRITER
How are some writers and journalists improving their writing? By using an old-school, low-tech typewriter. Where does this vintage piece of equipment have a place in 2018? For one, using a typewriter keeps you free from distraction. How many times have I sat down on my laptop to type an important email or letter, only to get lost in searching for something online or by reading a less-important notification? With a typewriter you can stay focused on one thing – getting your message written! Plus may enthusiasts like the “raw” words that come from typing directly to paper. No green or red squiggly lines or auto-correct, just your thoughts coming straight on to the page. Here is a video of some Street Poets <http://www.ntd.tv/2017/06/14/return-of-the-typewriter-vintage-machines-making-a-comeback/> using their typewriters in action. Maybe I’ll look into a typewriter for 2018….
Did you or your parents or grandparents ever own one of these classics?
HOW I KEPT THE GRINCH AWAY LAST NIGHT!
Have you heard the other version of the Grinch story? The one about his bad breath? As you may know, I’m a big fan of xylitol, a natural sugar found in birch trees and certain plants. It’s used in many ways now, but I use a xylitol and fluoride toothpaste every day to naturally fight bad breath and strengthen my teeth. Here’s the newly released poem <http://www.xlear.com/blog/grinch-stinkified-christmas/>by our friends at Xlear, How the Grinch Stinkified Christmas.
