Thanksgiving weekend used to be a time when families stepped away from the whirlwind of activity of work, school and the daily grind. Retailers or dare I say Corporations seem to be immune to the importance of this time set aside for families to reaffirm the importance of connection, to remind themselves that amongst the unrelenting demands and problems that confront us, there's a few people - family or close friends - who support, encourage and rally for you. Even if you embraced Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and look ahead to Cyber Monday . . . I hope you were also able to set aside a moment of appreciation and thanks for the blessing of family and friends.
If you're in the Napa Valley be sure to check out the new ice skating rink in downtown Napa - "Napa on Ice "- on the corner of 2nd and Coombs. I interviewed Peter Mott - the man who set the goal five years ago to bring ice skating to the Valley . . . and the opportunity for families to enjoy an activity that spans all ages. The rink has already attracted 80-year-old grandparents, a birthday party for an 8-year-old, and a safe and fun place for the teenagers. My interview is posted on the KVYN/KVON facebook page at: KVYN 99.3 The Vine/KVON 1440.
And . . . stay safe as you head home . . . life is precious!
