I feel grateful for all my family and friends, both near and far, and to all of you who are kind enough to read my scribblings here, in the print Beacon Journal and elsewhere. I hope your day goes well, and the holiday season holds many blessings.
In today's Beacon Journal, there's a story about local "Biggest Loser" contestant Aaron Thompkins, who will be eating lots of vegetables today. You can find that here. And the mailbag is here.
