The Christmas Season deserves a focus on some plants that actually bloom during this time of year. Thus, we are going to depart from the straight and narrow to examine the Christmas cactus. My mother had one for at least 30 years. As a child, I saw them in neighbors' homes during Christmas in Nebraska. As a teenager dating, I saw them in my girlfriends' homes around Christmas. As a pastor, I saw them in parishioners' homes.
One of my daughters and her family has adorned the outside of their house and front yard with a varied assortment of brightly lit Christmas decorations. It's not one of these homes that exhibits so many lights that it almost forces you to wear sunglasses as you drive by.But they do have enough of an array of holiday illumination to garner the attention of passersby, hopefully bringing joy and excitement to some children's hearts as they point and say, "Ooh, look at those Christmas lights!"

My wife and I made a decision over two years ago to get more involved in our Rockdale County government. We began to regularly attend Board of Commissioners and Board of Elections meetings. After two years of attendance, we particularly find the meetings of the BOC to often be the most frustrating to attend. This frustration for regular citizens who attend is, in our opinion, due largely to the unsatisfactory format of the BOC meetings.
