Of all the expected visitors I received while working part time during the Christmas holidays, there was special little girl, who I had the distinct pleasure of listening to decades ago.
It has now been decades and unfortunately many pounds ago when her late parents Rosario and Antonio J Soto III, who were also my big brother and sister in law had agreed to bring their little girl Rosie Soto to meet Santa at The Mall for Christmas.
It may have been a goofy, or silly idea we had come up with, but it made my niece, who is now a California gal very happy.

To put their down payment on their tombstone.
Not me, I like to take my time in the things I do. Life is for living, so why rush?
I'm still going to get wherever I am going in the end. I think maybe we should all chill out just a bit more and things would not be so hectic.
The holidays are in full swing... Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Year's Eve. So many holidays, so little time... NOT.
I often find myself watching cars speed by me while driving, only to see them slam their brakes down the road. Our entire life rushes by from my vantage point, or a window to the world.
Everybody seems to be moving at high speed... Its as if they were all in a big hurry to put a down payment of their tombstone.

"The Great Christmas Light Fight" - Tonight is the last installment of holiday decorations for the most wonderful time of the year. My daughter Sabrina Soto hosts ABC's hit decorating competition series, as the popular holiday program returns for a second week. ABC Tonight @8P
The competition and the quest for the $50,000 grand prize continue in the second edition of this seasonal special’s three telecasts, with the conclusion coming next week. Creating a dazzling outdoor display is the mission of the 24 families around the country who are in the running this time.
Each of the one hour episodes features 4 families from across America who work harder than Santa's elves in order to out-deck the halls of their competition and possibly win the ultimate Christmas Gift--$50,000!
The total prizing for the series is $300,000. Sabrina Soto and Michael Moloney from "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" have returned as judges for the series. 8:00 --10:00P, ET.
