I was out shopping, something I hate to do, and people seemed more grim than ever.  Anyone else feel that way? Instead of holiday cheer, it felt like despair and grumpiness was the new normal way to interact with each other.

On September 13, 1843, he put up a notice in the church for his new service: "Let us gather together in the

Alastair Hayward, Guest Author A few years ago, on the London Underground there was a sign that asked,  ‘If History could be folded, where would you put the crease?’ I think that what the sign was getting at is where is the pivotal or most important point in History for us.
