Christmas Time

There is a time when things seem fine,
a time of joy and reflection.
When children's eyes seem mesmerized
with sights of wondrous perfection.

A time when every moment spent
with great anticipation.
Soon to come the great event
of wondrous celebration. 

Yes, everyday concerns and woes,
no longer hold resentment.
As we go about our bright new day
and truly seek contentment. 

Our family, friends and God of course,
are really all that matter.
It's nice to know at Christmas time
all three are known to gather. 

It isn't just the presents, 
but the time we spend together.
The hugs, the talks, the jokes, the walks,
it just doesn't get much better. 

What really counts is love my friend,
and too much, you can never give.
Give all you have and then some more.
And remember to forgive.

"Do You Know Who You Are Buying From?"

"Before You Buy Know Who Your Buying From!"
So, who are we?  It's always a good idea to know who
you plan on doing business with, you know, establish
some common ground to build a relationship with.  
My name is Joe Patanella and I'm married to my
wonderful bride, Linda for 50 years and counting.  
The pictures you see are first, our grandchildren and
then our immediate family.  

I'm Italian and was born and raised in New York.  
We lived in the Bronx and Long Island until I was
12 and then we moved to Michigan.  Eventually I
got married at the ripe old age of 18 and my bride
was 17.  We raised two children, Tammy, my oldest
and Joe, my youngest.  We moved to Traverse City,
MI. to enjoy the beauty of God's creation.  The lakes
with all the blues and the greens of the Caribbean and
the wonderful valleys and hills known for their cherry
growing and wine vineyards are amazing.

"Many Advantages To Shopping On Line!"

When you shop on line you: Save money on gas! Save on time not having to search for a parking space! You have a selection from of products around the World, and services right there at your fingertips. You don’t have to rush to get there before the store closes, shop on line 24 hours a day. These are just a few of the benefits to shop on line.
Let’s face it, we all want the best deal. Price, sometimes, is the driving force behind our decision to purchase an item.  It could be a product or service, but we are certainly pressured by price. Is the cheapest price always the better way to go? “Definitely, without a doubt, NO.”  Many of us have had a bad experience of cheaper isn’t better! “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is!”
But, how do I choose which on line store to purchase from, and how will I know I’ve made the right choice? Here are some tips that may help make that decision.
What to look out for; If the product or service is much cheaper than the average price after comparing several  sites, Red Flag! If there is not a full description or visual of the product or service, Red Flag! If there is lack of information to help educate you in making your final  selection, Red Flag! If there is lack of information about the Company, like how it got started, and their business practices in regard to their customers, Red Flag! If there is lack of contact information, if a problem should arise, or a question  needs to be asked, Red Flag! If there is not a responsible Return Policy you can read, Red Flag! No well known secure credit card payment transaction, (such as PayPal etc.) Red Flag!
These are some of the items to watch out for.  A website that has all this covered, would typicality be one that can be trusted and great to do business with.  Hope these tips will help you in the future.

"There was a time when people looked forward
to a certain holiday that seemed to bring them
all closer together. A time when family and close
friends sat around the dinner table, enjoying a great
feast that took all day and then some to prepare.
Some family members traveled a long way, just to be
part of this celebration. All were looking forward to
this family gathering with great anticipation!

There was always a time of sharing, and getting
reacquainted with those that were out of town. A time
for warm hugs, laughter and some joyful tears being
together once more. The food was always great but
the fellowship even sweeter."
