Sunday Serendipity

By Jace, a Trail Mix Contributor

Continuing in a seasonal vein, perhaps my favorite selection — from what is unquestionably one of my favorite holiday collections of all time. The music and the period instruments make this a very special album. Noel!

Enjoy the music, but most especially enjoy your day.

Hope, Change, Decency

By SJWNY, a Trail Mix Contributor

I saw the footage of Joe Biden comforting Meghan McCain on The View: it was comforting, lovely & how every human being should treat another. Of course this is not always the case. But it was reassuring to see two people responding to each other simply as people, not as rivals.

On a purely political note, as a fellow human being I humbly request the Democratic Party to declare Joe Biden the Official Ambassador/Grampa of your Party. He is so needed in this dark world, giving us hope & as an example of the need to change back to common decency. All is calm, all is bright. Peace.

• Pass-throughs get a 20% deduction on their income
