Holiday Joys for Family Fun
I thought I'd add a new, periodic category for special holiday tips and resources. Today, I'm kicking it off with a delightful special deal I found – Handel's Messiah at Amazon – there are two different albums, each with 43 songs, that are currently on sale (one album for $1.99 and the other for $3.69 - though with Amazon, that sale can end at any time, so be sure to doublecheck the price). As I understand it, there are actually a few more songs then 43. But if you've been wanting to introduce yourself or your grandkids to this lovely work of musical art, this could be a great start. You can find all the links by clicking here.
Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy these resources and news for all of us boomers and seniors in the Sandwich Generation! These roundups are a regular part of SandwichINK, along with the tips and info I share at Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, and G+, so be sure to follow me there and…
P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them very much and read each one. I also do my best to reply to them all but, as you can imagine, there are times (many times, lately :) ) when caregiving needs do not allow for that. Thank you for your patience and your sweet comments.
