A Sappy Thanksgiving Reminder

Mary in Manhattan

Even though the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is kind of a giant advertisement, it’s a tradition – a staple in the lives of most Americans/Amuricans (however you choose to pronounce it). I even saw it live once in 2007, before I decided I needed to avoid it and the terrible crowds at all costs.

Yet, I will always have a special connection to this parade, ever since I graduated from Ithaca College. Amy Kule, the Executive Producer of the parade (the lady that walks in front) was a graduate of my alma mater, and the speaker at my graduation. She brought those Macy’s star balloons – the ones that you see every year – but painted them with Ithaca colors.

Obviously Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for family, friends and opportunities. But Thanksgiving is a perfectly timed yearly reminder for me, and I’m sure other Ithacans, to remember what…

HOW RICH I AM, by Carl Gooch

By the Mighty Mumford

How Rich I am

Rejoice, O my soul, Rejoice.

Let my lips His praise give voice.

Unceasing each breath a prayer;

For the love of my Lord is there.

I can in give thanks in all things;

It is the Lord who in my life reigns.

I meditate on His word night and day,

I know with me He will always stay.

Calm comes as I draw near to Him;

The noise of this world grows dim.

I come to Him and hardly confess,

Of all the things I did transgress.

He knows my heart and forgives;

Reminding me of the mercy He gives.

Although a sinner from birth I be,

With love He paid the price for me.

Rejoice, for my soul can not contain,

I overflow with joy I can not refrain.

To this world I may seem a poor man;

They do…

The 5Breakdown – YouTube Daily Vloggers

StyleBreakdown

On todays 5Breakdown I`m counting down my favorite YouTube daily/ weekly vloggers. If you are not familiar with YouTube and the vlogging scene , I`m sure this concept might sound a bit odd. I know that because I was there , I couldn`t understand what could possibly be so interesting about watching the ordinary day-to-day life of a stranger. Well trust me this is a dangerous path , you will soon find yourself getting up in the morning and watching all the vlogs in your subscription page before anything else.
