For those on the north and northwest side who saw that John Robinson would be teaching on December 12………  He WILL…. But not at Eastside Station this time.  Glen will be on vacation and has not found a replacement DJ.  Therefore, there will not be a DJ on the 12th so we could not have John at Eastside…..  

John WILL be teaching at Club 201 in Alpharetta on Wednesday the 12th from 7:30 to about 10 PM.  Cost will be $10 (ten dollars).  For those who can never make it over to Eastside here is your opportunity to have a fun night with John Robinson.

Item TWO.. For those on Facebook who are all getting a message that you have gotten a new friend request and to hold your finger down bla bla bla… that is a SCAM and just delete it… Do NOT continue the problem by passing that on…. Second time in a couple of months this one has gone around….


As we hit "Send"  we have not been advised of any planned dance events this weekend…

As many of you know McDonough Ga Line Dance instructor and Choreographer Tommy Bailey suffered a hear attack while at the monthly line dance at the Moose Lodge in McDonough. He was taken to Piedmont Henry where they ran a cath and inserted a stint in a 95% blocked vessel in his heart. As of Monday he is at home and doing well. The doctors has said that the cath did find an additional blood vessel that is also tuberculated and he will have to have an additional stint placed in that one in the very near future.

THANKS for all your concern and prayers!!!

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

Eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon wrote a letter to the editor of New York's Sun, and the quick response was printed as an unsigned editorial Sept. 21, 1897. The work of veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church has since become history's most reprinted newspaper editorial, appearing in part or whole in dozens of languages in books, movies, and other editorials, and on posters and stamps.

"DEAR EDITOR: I am 8 years old.
"Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus.
"Papa says, 'If you see it in THE SUN it's so.'
"Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?


VIRGINIA, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no VIRGINIAS. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You may tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, VIRGINIA, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.
