Who is having what for Christmas Eve AND Christmas Day Dinners? In our house, we celebrate the Polish Wilia (the “w” is pronounced as a “v”) that consists of an odd number of courses – seven, nine or eleven. Christmas Day is prime rib (when affordable), easy on the carbohydrates, big on vegetables and fresh fruits. Shopping is not done until I get the shrimp! God bless America, always! A. K. Buckroth
An e-mail friend of mine, Karen, just had her third kidney transplant. Due to diabetes complications, this happened. It is one of the facts of life with diabetes. My kid-sister, Judy, awaits her third kidney. All this to stay alive. Judy has been on ‘the [kidney donor] list’ for four years now. I think because her blood type is O-, which rare in itself, donors are scarce.
