Year: 2014

Counting Down to 2015

Can you believe it?  Only three days left in 2014.  If your home is like ours, we’re in the process of taking down the holiday decorations, finishing up the leftovers from holiday meals, writing thank you notes and starting to organize ourselves for 2015.  Yes, we set those long and short term goals during the last …

2014 Coming to a Close

Wow, can it be true? Only sixteen more days left in 2014.  It seems the days and years are clicking by faster and faster.  We feel like 2014 has been a good and successful year in many ways and we hope to celebrate the season of joy and thankfulness with all of you as the …

No More Turkey Sandwiches Please, at Least not Until Christmas

Yummy, yummy, and delightful was our Thanksgiving celebration and oh yes, we did stuff ourselves well and then….the turkey sandwiches began.  We do love them so, but maybe not for every meal until the big bird is all gone.  What a blessing it was to have family and friends around …

Election Day Came, Went and Life Moved On

Yes, it did; we lived through it all and are doing just fine.  It was the normal deluge of campaign slogans, yard signs, bill boards, and television, radio and internet messages from our favorite and not-so-favorite candidates.  The concession speeches were given by the losers and the victory parties celebrated for the …

Tomorrow is the BIG Day

Well, it’s here!  The big day has finally arrived and tomorrow at 7 a.m., those of us who haven’t already voted will make the trek to our polls and yield the power we are given by our U.S. Constitution. We here at LMA sure don’t take that power lightly and know you don’t either.  Lots …

Is it Real or Just a Little Teaser?

As we write today’s newsletter, the cool breezes are gently blowing through my office windows.  Yes, I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for the opportunity to open all the windows and have my morning tea as the windows stay open. So, the moment a little bitty breeze blew, the personality …

Our Country’s Heart and Soul Remembers 9/11

The day came upon me as most business days; full of appointments, phone calls, emails and work tasks.  It was still early in the day, before noon, that I was struck by the realization of what day it was, and what had happened thirteen years ago. As most did that day, I immediately …

Labor Day…What is it all about…Really

Our last “summer” holiday just passed us by on Monday, September 1 and for many of us it means the end of summer vacations, the beginning of a new school year and football season, and hopefully some cooler weather.  Few of us stop to celebrate Labor Day, other than a barbeque and just a …

It’s Back to School Time for Kids, Young and Not So Young

Good grief, is it just me, or does everyone think time is moving way too fast? With the blink of an eye, the 2014 legislative session was over and our kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews were out of school for the summer.  Now, summer is coming to a …
