Thanks for the tips
I would like to say thanks to all the people who have still been giving generous tips over the holiday season. A lot of times during the holidays people tip a lot less, but when you think about it, that makes it really hard for those of us who rely on tips to live. We usually make much less than minimum wage because it is assumed that we will receive those tips, and not only do we still have to pay all the bills this month as usual but we have to buy Christmas gifts as well, so if we depend on that income and we get less, it makes it really hard.

Delicious AmVets meal in Massena
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the AmVets of Massena for the excellent Christmas dinner they provided me on Christmas day. The turkey dinner that they brought to me was one of the best I have ever eaten. They are to be commended for the time and effort they spent preparing and serving these dinners for all who could come to their facility and those who needed them delivered to their homes. This was the first time I had them deliver to me and it was a delicious meal. Again thanks to all.
