Things My Mom Taught Me – When You’re Cold Have Hot Chocolate
This week is about two important lessons I learned from my mom, "when your cold , have hot chocolate" and "don't fight". In today's environment its easy to get angry and want to fight back, once you do that you loose. The other lesson is about thinking out of the book.

We also have Dennis Hamilton on our segment, "My House That Built Me" (http://myhousethatbuiltme.com/Home.html)and he gives us the perspective of the neighborhood being an extension of the home.
