I'm just a guy who sometimes has a lot to say even if it's not important. So just enjoy it and laugh a little!

'Tis the Season.
OK, so with only 5 shopping days left until Christmas, I feel it is time to share my thoughts on the "Christmas Consumer". 1 word...CRAZY! This person is a different breed. With time running out there is a sense of desperation in the air. This year is a bit more desperate. With less money to go around retailers have slashed prices and slashed again. Each item that a customer buys is needing to be special in it's own right. In the past people have wrapped 2 and 3 things in one package, this year they are wrapped separately. There is still a feeling of joy in the air but unfortunately the desperation turns into anger, rudeness, then craziness. The idea of joy is almost forgotten. So, I encourage you when shopping...be patient, smile, and remember that the people working in stores are there to help you but they want to be joyous as well. So be nice!! Now, stop reading this and go shopping. You are running out of time.
My name is James Burgess. I have a beautiful wife of a little over 8 years named Lisa and a baby on the way. We are both busy with work and school but find as much time as we can to be involved in church and hang out with our great friends. I hope the things you read here will inspire, educate, or just entertain!!
