Think About This:  “When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you do not blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet, it we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, an dyou show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.”  ~  Thich Nhat Hanh

As the first candle was lit on menorahs across the world last evening, it marks the perfect time for all of us to take a moment to think about miracles. They come in all sizes and forms, sometimes coming around as expected and sometimes quite the opposite. But they do happen. You have to keep your heart open and expect them. So no matter what challenges are clouding your life, the lighted candle should remind you that all will be well.   


Former promo pro TODD BALLANTYNE, who left the TV biz after heading up creative at KYW in Philly as well as Comcast’s CN8 and Promo Manager at NBC’s WCAU in the City of Brotherly Love, experienced a miracle this weekend. He debuted a new creation in the aforementioned Philadelphia – Papa Todd has a baby daughter! Do we need to say the Ballantyne family couldn’t be happier? Well Dunne! 


On the opposite side of the country, out Sacramento way, FOX 50 (calls KTXL) On-Air Promo Manager NATE DARLING is off the market and engaged.  The holidays always bring a rash of engagements. 


JIM WINDSOR needs your healing thoughts….going to have some surgery and it’s always good to have as many folks in your corner pulling for you as you can. Jim’s currently doing promo at FOX in Chicago, WFLD, and has been spinning marketing magic in Milwaukee, Palm Beach and Akron. I’ll keep you posted on his progress…you keep him in your thoughts. And don’t hesitate to Facebook him!


Traveling for the holiday (or just traveling)? These are seven VERY informative and great ideas on how to make the travel hassle better. No really, these are super ideas.
