"QUANTUM SHOT" #746
Link - article by Avi Abrams




Getting into the Seasonal cheer... and staying there!

"Joyful, Joyful!" - these are great times spent with family, friends, pets, many turkeys and the subsequent turkey soups & casseroles. The skies are smiling on those who smile back, and also on those who are discouraged and alone and do not have the slightest inclination to look up, or to cheer up. In this season, however, we are reminded of the "All Is Ultimately Well" good tidings and perhaps of a ten million unwanted calories coming to stay for a while, if we are not careful.
