I am a firm believer in Karma as I have seen it work in many ways over the years. I have seen people who are nasty skid off the road in a snowstorm while other sailed by them. I have seen good people give of themselves only to be rewarded in ways they never thought of happening. Yes what goes round comes round which is why I have spent a lot of this decade--hey, that's 13 years---doing/being good. Okay I am still trying to figure out why the troubles with my legs the past 2 weeks or why someone stole a gift of a carrot cake that was sent to me. The latter was supposedly left with a neighbor and if they need the cake that badly I guess it can be considered doing a good thing (but I keep on hoping someone will knock on my door with the cake!) And though I did get my turkey back and have had 5 meals from it without getting food poisoning as someone said (hoped?) I would get , I still don't know what I did bad to havethe bird disappear! Karma does catch up with you.

This morning there was a knock on my door and I was given a box sent by Alfredo and Michael from Zest of Memphis my favorite 'sweet' mail order house--take a look at their page and start to salivate!. In the box were carrot cake bars, white truffle chocolate bars and salted brownies--what a way to start the morning! And, of course, I ended last night with Shirley's 'gift'--more about that another day.

Last week I got a gift certificate to one of my favorite restaurants---The Cheesecake Factory--which I haven't been able to afford. When we sat down we were handed two menus: it's not bad enough their regular menu offers too many items to choose from they need a second one? In any case we put it aside as it said something about being 'thinlicious'--I don't know about you but I don't go to The Cheesecake Factory to get thin!!! (Though I ashamedly admit I didn't have any cheesecake!!!)

And then there is my amazing Christmas cactus plant that I have had a few years. It once again is in bloom this year having only missed 2011 BUT it did bloom in time for my Leap Birthday February 29, 2012--that was strange.

I have been a good boy--well, a few lapses--in 2013 so I am waiting for Santa, in the guise of karma, to bring me a very, merry, happy holiday. If he doesn't visit you maybe it is time to get your act together---never too late!! (Whether you believe in Santa or not---I do---there is always karma!)

    I don't know how I feel about Karma as I too have seen very bad things happen to very good people and good things happen to bad people. I am on the fence with this one.

    A lot of times bad things happen to good people. I have a neighbor that everybody agrees him and his wife are good people. Yet he was diagnosed earlier this year with pancreatic and liver cancer, he just got out of the hospital last thursday because his lungs had filled with fluid because of a heart murmur.
