Shattered state of mind

Since we’re all supposed to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time, it also shouldn’t be too hard to hold two different thoughts in mind at once.

High on Santa’s list

Without intending to trod on Santa’s turf, a few years ago I started the Christmas tradition in this space of handing out the gift of a nice word or two for the people, places and things that make Halifax County such a wonderful community.
