  • Holiday Wishes from Special Needs Vacation by V

    The holidays tend to be a bit busy.  My wish is for everyone to slow down, and enjoy the special moments a bit more.  This can mean enjoying a church service, lighting up the house, having a snowball fight, or building a ginger bread village.  Often the experiences are what create the memories more than all the materialistic things.  Also you may want to share an old tradition or create a new tradition.  In our house the holidays would not be complete without a few batches of Swedish Nuts to share. Although my youngest is now 18, she is going to join me in baking the nuts.

  • Christmas Greetings from Catherine – Luxury Patrol

    Christmas has always been the most special time of year for me. I’m a Catholic in a Protestant world, but at least Church of England members also went to church on Christmas Eve and Christmas Morn -Hundreds of years of tradition, everyone walking through the Silent Night.  Stars shining brightly in the midnight sky, leading us towards Churches to worship the birth of Christ.  For me, it has always been a more religious holiday than just a commercial one, and how I wish that were still so.

  • Christmas Greetings :The Joy in Giving

    As avid travelers, one thing we have in common, is our love in learning about different cultures.  We may not understand the language, but we do communicate through our gestures, eye contact and body language.

  • Celebrate the Magic

    I love the holidays…it’s such a magical time!  The twinkling lights, egg nog, decorating the tree, shopping for gifts and celebrations with family and friends – everything seems a little more festive and those around you just a little more jolly.

  • Solvit Deluxe Telescoping Pet Ramp: Another Idea for Christmas for Your Dog

    Susie is still spry and able to jump into the SUV, but she was still impressed with the Solvit Deluxe Telescoping Pet Ramp. Especially for large dogs with hip problems, or any dog with arthritis brought on by old age, the ramp is an excellent addition for making it easier to get your best friend into the car with minimum effort. One of Susie’s cousins is an elderly boxer that has to be lifted into the back on her daddy’s SUV. The Solvit pet ramp makes it easier both on the dog and their human to take them in the vehicle.
