The legend of Santa Claus and the nine reindeer by Kevin Dayhoff


The legend of Santa Claus and the nine reindeer by Kevin Dayhoff Merry Christmas. 

The tradition that Santa Claus, or Father Christmas as he is known in England, traveled through the night in a sleigh pulled by eight reindeer is thought to be a Scandinavian myth.

We got the ninth reindeer, Rudolf, from the department store, Montgomery Ward. The character first appeared in a 1939 publication by Robert L. May, which was marketed by Montgomery Ward. According to many sources, including a December 25, 2013 story on "Morning Edition," on NPR, the author considered the name 'Reginald' or 'Rollo,' before settling upon the name Rudolf...

I believe in Santa Claus by Kevin Earl Dayhoff


December 9, 2016

Throughout history, Westminster and Carroll County have been
filled with the spirit of the season for the Christmas holidays. No Grinches here.

I hope that by now you are putting the final touches on your
Christmas decorations and wrapping presents with some soothing heavy metal
Christmas music on in the background.

Actually, some of my all-time Christmas favorites include
"The Chipmunk Song" sung by Alvin and the Chipmunks in 1958 and
"I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" written by John Rox and
performed by Gayla Peevey, 10 years old at the time, in 1953.

Another classic that comes to mind is a little more offbeat,
"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by Tommie Connor. He was only 13
years old when it was recorded in 1952. The song was actually banned by the
Catholic Church in several cities.

Yes, of course, I believe in Santa Claus.

I believe because Dolly Pardon and local community leader Mary
Bostwick Shellman have told me that Santa exists...



‘Kenny & Dolly: A Christmas to Remember’, Published
November 15, 1984 / Last Updated August 23, 2015: ‘Kenny & Dolly –
Christmas To Remember’ is a network television Christmas special inspired by
their popular album, ‘Once Upon a Christmas’

In 1984, Dolly Parton starred alongside of Kenny Rogers in
“Kenny & Dolly: A Christmas To Remember,” a network television special
inspired by “Once Upon A Christmas,” a popular Christmas album recorded by
Dolly and Kenny Rogers.

Yes, of course, I believe in Santa Claus. I believe because
Dolly Pardon and local community leader Mary Bostwick Shellman have told me
that Santa exists. http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/columnists/features/ph-cc-dayhoff-121116-20161209-column.html

Parton told the world that she believes in Santa Claus on
December 2, 1984 when she sang “I Believe in Santa Claus” with Kenny Rogers in
a Christmas special on CBS, “Kenny & Dolly – Christmas To Remember.”
According to her website, dollyparton.com, the Christmas special show was
“inspired by their popular album, ‘Once Upon a Christmas.’” http://dollyparton.com/life-and-career/movies-television/christmas-to-remember/463 



‘Kenny & Dolly’ sang, “… I believe in Santa Claus I'll
tell you why I do… I believe that dreams and plans and wishes can come true. I
believe in miracles I believe in magic too. I believe in Santa Claus and I
believe in you. I believe in family in country and in smiles. I believe in turning
negatives to positives in life…”

Visiting the P. Graham Dunn, art, gifts, home decor... store in Dalton, Ohio

Visiting the P. Graham Dunn, art, gifts, home decor... store in Dalton, Ohio Nov. 25, 2016 Friday

It is a fascinating store that manufactures and sell woodworking products; much of which is of a patriotic, agricultural, arts and crafty, and religious theme.

The customers are predominantly Mennonite and some Amish - complete with horse and buggies outside. Another great bonus is that the clientele actually dresses appropriately to be out in public. And folks are respectful and polite. Just saying.

It is a really neat store. Almost like an art gallery... Perfect place to visit for someone who maintained his woodworking workshop and radial arm saw in the living room for fifteen years.

Happy Thanksgiving! from Off Track Art

Happy Thanksgiving!

Learn how to see.  Realize that everything connects to everything else.  ~Leonardo da Vinci


Connecting to art in Westminster has never been easier.

With the reopening of Eclecticity at 15 East Main Street, Westminster has more art available than ever before.

When thinking about the holidays and the folks that you'd like to treat to something beautiful, please think of Shopping Small in Westminster.

I'd Love To Change The World - Ten Years After



I'd Love To Change The World - Ten Years After

From the album A Space In Time!

One of my favorite songs in decades of advocacy and activism


In light of recent events, we think this sums up how a lot of people are feeling and this song yet again proves poignant with its timeless message.

“Eye in the Sky”

“Eye in the Sky”

I watched this taut British thriller while flying home from Paris recently. Not only did it help me pass the time on a long flight, but I really recommend it. Read this review by Rolling Stone writer, Peter Travers, from March 9, 2016 http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/reviews/eye-in-the-sky-20160309

Helen Mirren and Aaron Paul debate the merits of drone warfare in this torn-from-the-headlines drama

It's a setup for a moral debate on drone warfare. That Eye in the Sky is nowhere near that dry and academic is a tribute to director Gavin Hood (Tsotsi), who uses a tight script, by Guy Hibbert, to hold us in a vise and keep squeezing. The suspense is killer as military minds in the US and the UK come together only to lock horns on a drone operation in Nairobi.

In one corner, there's Katherine Powell (a dynamite Helen Mirren), a British army colonel ready to order a U.S. military drone to target a Somali terrorist organization believed to include two British citizens and one American. Cue the complication: Alia (Aisha Takow), a young Kenyan girl is selling bread in the kill zone.

Pericles: “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”


Pericles: “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”


Attributed to Pericles, Greek Statesman born 495 BC and died 429 BC during the Peloponnesian War in the great Athens plague. According to a number of historic accounts, “In 430 an outbreak of a plague hit Athens. The plague ravaged the densely packed city, and in the long run, was a significant cause of its final defeat. The plague wiped out over 30,000 citizens, sailors and soldiers and even Pericles and his sons. Roughly one quarter of the Athenian population died… The war was documented by Thucydides, an Athenian general, and historian, in his work History of the Peloponnesian War. Most of the extant comedies of Aristophanes were written during this war, and poke fun at the generals and events…”
