Every Christmas pageant throughout the world has a scene showing Joseph leading Mary into Bethlehem on a donkey. Do you realize what would happen if the Republicans asked for equal time?
Q: Why is Christmas just like a day at the office?
A: You do all the work and the fat guy with the suit gets all the credit.
I was excited to see my favorite news and opinion website Unknown News put my blog as one of their Mystery Links yesterday! It’s a site run by two real sweethearts, Helen and Harry Highwater and well worth checking out.
Mrs. and Mr. Elecpencil went to New Castle’s Scottish Rite Cathedral Friday evening. We experienced B.E. Taylor’s annual Christmas concert tour. See info on B.E. here: B.E. Taylor
B.E. does a great take on some traditional Christmas songs and also has quite a few original Christmas songs. I loved that B E includes local special needs adults who join him singing and dancing on stage. All in all two and a half hours worth of fun yet touching memorable entertainment. Mrs. an Mr. Elecpencil loved it so much we have decided to make it an annual event and that’s saying a ton in this household.
While in New Castle we stopped for dinner at Nahlas Middle Eastern Restaurant on Rt.18, which is located in an old Taco Bell. Nahalas owner is a relative of Mary’s Restaurant on 131E. Long Ave. in New Castle. I have visited Mary’s many times but had not been to Nahlas before. We had hummus with Syrian bread followed by Chicken over rice with onions, peppers and Syrian garlic sauce. This chicken dish is my favorite Chicken dish and was just as great as at Mary’s. Nahlas was packed but service, meal and price were all top notch! Two ice teas, hummus and two great dinners for about $20.00 is even in the Elecpencil’s budget range!
