Christmas Corner

Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year - and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority.
- William John Cameron



Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we're here for something else besides ourselves.
- Eric Sevareid



Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home.
- Carol Nelson



My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?
- Bob Hope



Rotini Pasta Salad Recipe

Ingredients:
2 bags or boxes of Rotini pasta
1 large bottle Ranch dressing
1/2 large bottle Italian dressing
1 small can sliced black olives
1 small jar sweet pickle relish
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 purple onion, chopped
Zatarain or Tony Chachiere seasoning
1 lb. shrimp, boiled, seasoned and deveined
1 container cherry tomatoes, cut in half

Directions:

Step 1:
Boil Rotini pasta al-dente. Drain and cool.

Step 2:
In a large bowl, combine all other ingredients except the cherry tomatoes.

Step 3:
Mix well and taste for correct seasoning.

Step 4:
Add cut cherry tomatoes last.
