Unlike today, staffing was never a real problem, but I was searching for a someone to work three hours a day only at lunch. I went thru all my applications and most were all looking for full time or at least 20 hours per week. I found one however, buried at the bottom of a four-inch stack that was only looking for lunch part-time. His name was Nicky. Hadn't met him but thought I would give him a call and see if he could stop by for an interview. When I called, he wasn't in but his mom said she would make sure he would be there. At the accorded time, Nicky walked in. One of those moments when my heart went in my throat. Nicky had Downs Syndrome. His physical appearance was a giveaway and his speech only reinforced the obvious. I was young and sheltered. Had never interacted on a professional level with a developmentally disabled person. I had no clue what to do, so I went ahead and interviewed him. He was a wonderful young man. Great outlook. Task focused. Excited to be alive. For only reasons God knew at that time, I hired him. 3 hours a day, 3 days a week to run a grill. I let the staff know what to expect. Predictably, the crew made sure I got the message, "no one wants to work with a retard." To this day I find that word offensive. We had a crew meeting, cleared the air, and prepared for his arrival. Nicky showed up for work right on time. He was so excited to be working. He stood at the time clock literally shaking with anticipation. He clocked in and started his training. Couldn't multi task, but was a machine on the grill. Now for the fascinating part..... Back in that day, there were no computer screens to work from. Every order was called by the cashier. It required a great deal of concentration on the part of all production staff to get the order right. While Nicky was training during his first shift, the sandwich maker next to him asked the grillman/trainer what was on the next sandwich. Nicky replied,"single, no pickle no onion." A few minutes later it happened again. It was then that we discovered Nicky had a hidden and valuable skill. He memorized everything he heard! Photographic hearing! WHAT A SKILL SET. It took 3 days and every sandwich maker requested to work with Nicky. He immediately was accepted by the entire crew. After his shift he would join the rest of his crew family, drinking Coke like it was water! It was then that they discovered another Rainman-esque trait. Nicky was a walking/talking perpetual calendar! With a perpetual calendar as a reference, they would sit for hours asking him what day of the week was December 22, 1847. He never missed. This uncanny trait mesmerized the crew. His mom would come in at 2 to pick him up. More times than not, the crew would be back there with him hamming it up. As I went to get him from the back, his mom said something I will never forget. "Let him stay there as long as he wants. He has never been accepted anywhere like he has been here." I excused myself and dried my eyes, humbled and broken-hearted at the lesson I just learnt. Nicky had a profound impact on that store. His presence changed a lot of people. Today I believe with every fiber of my body that Nicky's hiring was no accident. God's Timing and Will is Perfect. This Christmas, I hope we all understand what we are celebrating. We are all like Nicky. We each have our shortcomings. We each have our strong points. But we are all of value. God made us that way and God doesn't make mistakes. Nicky certainly wasn't a mistake. He was a valuable gift that I am forever grateful for. We are celebrating the birth of the ONE that leveled the playing field for all of us. God doesn't care if you are rich or poor, republican or democrat or black or white. He doesn't care if your chromosome structure is perfect. He doesn't care what level of education you have attained. He cares about your heart. He wants us all to love and appreciate the gift HE gave us on Christmas, His son, the Savior, our salvation. His Son that was born to die for our sins. To pay our debt. To provide us a path for eternity. So this Christmas, let’s check our hearts. There is a little bit of Nicky in all of us and I suspect there is a Nicky somewhere in your life that is looking for the chance to be embraced. Thank God for that. Thank God for His perfect gift, Christ Jesus.” *Received via Group mail E Myths and Realities https://madrascourier.com/insight/how-vetala-evolved-into-vampire-dracula/ Excerpts : "Its eyes, which were wide open, were of a greenish-brown, and never twinkled; its hair also was brown, and brown was its face—three several shades which, notwithstanding, approached one another in an unpleasant way, as in an over-dried cocoa-nut. Its body was thin and ribbed like a skeleton or a bamboo framework, and as it held on to a bough, like a flying fox, by the toe-tips, its drawn muscles stood out as if they were ropes of coin. Blood it appeared to have none, or there would have been a decided determination of that curious juice to the head; and as the Raja handled its skin it felt icy cold and clammy as might a snake. The only sign of life was the whisking of a ragged little tail much resembling a goat’s. Judging from these signs the brave king at once determined the creature to be a Baital—a Vampire. This scintillating description of the frightful Vetala by reputed Indologist Sir Richard Burton caught the fancy of a certain Bram Stoker. In popular belief, Stoker’s Dracula is said to have been inspired by Central European tales of Nosferatu or the undead and the infamous 15th-century Romanian prince Vlad Tepes or Vlad the Impaler. However, while the humble Vetala may not be listed among Nosferatu and Vlad, its contribution to the creation of this gothic legend is undeniable." F Leisure Choice of Heart* A patient who needs a heart transplant suddenly gets a phone call from his surgeon "You are in luck, we have two matching donors. A twenty year old athlete and an 80 year old lawyer, which heart do you want?" The patient answers, "Give me the lawyer's heart." "Are you sure??" Asks the surgeon in surprise. "Yea, I'd rather have one that hasn't been used." *Received from A P Ramadurai G Guruvayoor Ekadashi https://www.latestly.com/lifestyle/festivals-events/guruvayur-ekadasi-2021-date-significance-puja-vidhi-from-fasting-rituals-to-reading-bhagavad-gita-everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-auspicious-day-3132571.html Guruvayur Ekadashi is celebrated according to the solar calendar and hence it falls in the Hindu lunar calendar either in the month of Kartik or in the month of Margashirsha. At present it is celebrated in the month of November or December according to the English calendar. This year the day falls on December 14. Throughout the day of Guruvayur Ekadashi, the temple remains open for devotees. On the day of Dashami (the day before Ekadashi) the doors of the temple are opened at 3 in the morning and it remains open till 09 in the morning (after Ekadashi). The special day sees Uthayasthamana Puja observed, which is performed from morning till evening for the elephants of the temple. The Lord Guruvayurappan Temple in Guruvayur has a large group of elephants dedicated to the worship of the Lord.

Fast on Ekadasi tithi (11th day) and end it before Dwadasi tithi (12th day) ends. Rice, salt and grains are completely avoided on the day. Visit a Krishna Temple and do your prayers.

Read Bhagavatam (Srimad Bhagavad Purana) or the Bhagavad Gita. Offer food to cow – help in saving and protecting cow and other animals.
