Hi to all, I don't post very much but wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.  I also wanted to share a gift that an old high school friend made for a group of seven other friends.  We have reunited after 40 years.
I'm sure you all have heard of them but it's the first time I've had one and they are wonderful.  A Corn Bag!!!!!!!  She made a big and small one.  You just heat them up in the microwave for 3-5 minutes and they stay hot for a very long time.  This is the greatest thing since hot dogs and apple pie.  I used one my friend had a long time ago but never took the time to look for my own.  Then bam here it is for me.
It's so much better than a heating pad because you don't have the cord to deal with.  You can also take them to bed and heat up your bed before getting into it.  Mine is freezing before I get in.  The two different sizes are great too.  One for your neck and shoulders and the other one for your back.  Its very soothing.
Well I won't ramble anymore, but this would make a great gift for anyone, my husband has been working out in the cold and he also uses it for his achy muscles.
If you try it once you will be hooked. 
Hope your holiday is joyful.     AnnieRae
