Tis' the Season for Giving

Tis' the Season for Gifts in My Life

At Christmas one year, we began to talk Christmas gifts that were something clever—something with a worth more than dollars.

One of the best Christmases of those years included these gifts for me. My son, Chris, provided a blue fox ice scraper. My son, Dan, gave a small Wonder Woman action figure. I wore the “chicken god” just received from one of my nine bosses. There was an extravagantly wrapped jewel box package from my brother,…

Ukrainian Soul Food, Werewolves and Amazons


Ukrainian Soul Stories at the Library

Compared to shoplifting live turkeys in your bloomers and erotic games in the village bath, immigrant life is beyond boring. So firebrand Baba (Grandma) is brewing up Old Country customs in her new neighbourhood.

Hear Raisa Stone tell outrageous stories she's collected from Ukrainian people, including a true murder confession from her neighbour. She kept the secret until…

Standards: 52 Bible Parables - Day 90

Standard Storyteller

To be a Christian Storyteller is to know that you have to keep your theme focused in one direction. In today's society that's called being niche focused. Saying you all are a Christian states that you believe in a certain moral standard that you will live your life by and that you would relate that standard in…

52 Bible parables -- Day 21: Too Much?

Too Much?

Well it's Friday and uploaded video day.  Today's story is titled: "Candy Bars".  And it has taken me most of the day in between routes to accomplish uploading just part of it and I'm still not done.  The next thing to do is to gather the data to promote.  And that's going to take some time.  Oh woe with me, what shall I do.

In order to have…

52 Bible Parables -- Day 20: Snow Day 5

Snow Day 5

Well the honeydews did come.  With this snow of course there needed to be shoveling and I had my task to do mainly discovering where my car was.  There was no snow plow that it come down our street until late in the evening.  So now I have to go back out in the morning and dig out a path into the street so that I can get to work.

And what time I…

52 Bible Parables -- Date 18: Snow Day 4

Snow Day 4

Boy did the stories fly about how slick the streets were.  It was unexpected, but acceptable, seeing as I had no choice.  The streets are so slick that nothing could travel on them so we ended up with a snow day.  It was a drizzle that froze on the streets.

It came in handy in the sense that I was able to finish this week's project.  That is this…

52 Bible Parables -- Day 17: Blessed Day

Blessed Day

Got up this morning as if I was going to work and proceeded to get some things done, some things around the house, and then finally some things on to the computer.

I was able to video the next parable story today, as well as another story called “Hunting Wolf” which was a short story that I remembered.  Then I was able to get on the computer and…

52 Bible Parables -- Day 16: Catching Up Again

Catching Up Again

I can not say the time has flown by, because actually it is gone by at its usual pace but I had so many other things to do in that time that it was difficult to sit down and make out my blog entry for the day.

I was able to make it home in between routes on Friday, but complications that prevented me from doing a lot.  Then Friday evening,…

52 Bible Parables -- Day 12: Snow Day 3

Snow Day = Opportunity.

I'm getting into this snow day routine, almost liking working at my computer all day long.  And having a camera to practice my Storytelling and see how I'm doing is quite helpful in developing technique.  Having the time to figure out what I need as far as stories, editing video and stories is actually kind of nice.

That's where the…

52 Bible Parables - DAY 11: Snow Day 2

Being Flexible

Can I tell you the Story of my day? I am a Storyteller you know.

I started the day sleeping in because I got to bed later than normal knowing today was a Snow Day. Although I did want to get as much done as I could before dawn. There was much to do if I got the chance:

1. I had to be sure that the fuel for my blimp was in order.

52 Bible Parables - Day 10: Snow Day

Best Laid Plans

Well today started out as a normal work day, but I got the word through Facebook that it was a Snow Day for the school district and being a School Bus Driver that means no work for today.  So I set about, since I was up early anyway, to figure out what I was going to do today.  And sure enough, the best laid plans have gone astray, because the wife…

52 Bible Parables - Day Nine: Resistance


When I was taking Sign Language Interpreters Training several years ago.  The first thing the instructor came in and said was 'Of all the things that an interpreter had to be, is to be flexible'.  On day nine that was true.

I had full intentions to video this week's story so that I could edit it and get a good start on getting it out with…

Well I got up this morning went out on a trip to deliver the debate team to a competition, came home gathered up the wife, went out to breakfast, went grocery shopping, and by that time it was 11 o'clock in the morning or so.  And I was able to finally get around to editing the post from day seven.  Now that's my story…
