Good Morning Nanty Glo!
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2003        Friday, January 3 2003 

Jon Kennedy, webmaster Cleaning house

From Willows, Calif.— On Wednesday I began the never joyful task of Christmas undecorating. It's time to clean house for a new start with the new year. It also means cleaning the Christmas decorations from the Home Page, the Front Page only of which is usually decorated, and where much of the transition has already been accomplished.

I've decided not to offer a free printable calendar for 2003 (as we have done for the two previous years) in favor of encouraging you to order one of the ready made historical calendars of the Valley available from the Nant-Y-Glo Tri-Area Museum and Historical Society, which benefits that society's vital mission. But I do plan to continue to make an online calendar part of the Front Page (just under the date, top left corner). You might not believe how long it took to find an acceptable January calendar and install it, but it has now been done. Also the Christmas lights are gone, the Bethlehem stars in the background have been removed, and the Christmas music has been prelaced by Auld Lang Syne. But three Christmasy, but also wintry, snow pictures from the area continue to grace the page.

I'm writing from Willows, my brother's house, because on December 13 his bride of just over a year, Katie, became incapacitated by a serious stroke. For many days her situation appeared hopeless, but finally, on Christmas, a miraculous recovery began, and now she is much better. Though partially paralyzed, she is eating and talking, able to get out of bed for wheelchair "outings," and the prognosis has been upgraded from hopeless to much hope. I'm here to spend a day with brother Bob and visit Katie before resuming my fulltime job next Monday.

These three months of unemployment have been an opportunity to do a lot of clean up and make progress in several areas of my life, including the Nanty Glo Home Page and my other major project, Xnmp. But it will be nice to get back to work, from which I hope to see you next week!.

3. WHAT WAS PLAN B? An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, wherein the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.

4. THE GETAWAY! A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas, Kwik Stop and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

Thought for the day

They tease me now, telling me it was only a dream. But does it matter whether it was a dream or reality, if the dream made known to me the truth?
