happy holidaysA Message from Sarah & Chris:

The theme of this issue is "holiday humor and happiness."

The holiday season can be stressful and certainly very busy for most of us, so we wanted to devote this issue to giving you a short "smile" break. 

As you juggle work, families, holiday preparation, shopping, etc. - remember to be thankful for all the joys in your life.  Most importantly, keep your sense of humor close at hand and laugh every chance you get.  After all, laughter IS the best medicine!

We hope you enjoy our free SCS e-newsletter.  Please send us your ideas and suggestions for future issues.  Have a great day!

Getting Your Ducks in a Row 

Have you ever had one of those days where you just couldn't seem to get your ducks in a row?  We know things can get a little crazy around the holidays with all the year end tasks. 


Check out this short video - and you'll see that with a little perserverance (and luck!), order does prevail.  After all, sometimes all we are is ducks in the wind! 



                                              Christmas lights 

Light and Lively

One of the special things about the holidays is the vast array of lights and music on display.  The holiday spirit shines through as people use their imagination and creativity to bring happiness and joy to others.  All of you rockers out there - kick back and enjoy this lively music and creative light display!

  God Bless the USA!


The holiday season is a great time to remember that, despite what is happening on the Hill Iand our political differences, we still live in the best country on earth. 


If you happen to pass a serviceman on the street, thank them for their service.  Take time to enjoy this powerful video  and listen carefully to the music.  Then thank your lucky stars to be living in the USA!




happy new year
