RAVE to the gentleman who told me that you are five years sober. When I congratulated you, you had tears in your eyes. You and your brothers and sisters are heroes, each of you, who fight the fight every day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your inspiration.

RANT to the too many hauling trucks that are traveling our highways and roads with their loads, which include sand, pebbles and large rocks, uncovered. This is against the law and is incredibly dangerous to the cars following them. Know the law and follow it for the safety of all.

RAVE to my anonymous neighbor who left the kindest note, with sparkles and googly eyes on it, telling me how much my holiday lights have made them happy over the years. That was a lovely Christmas present!
