Working out is important, we all know that by now. But when you go to the gym, do you workout with a purpose and a plan? Or do you just tromp cook ham joint boil there and grind away on whatever equipment happens to be free at the moment?Heat you gas grill to a medium heat, utilizing the heating elements on both sides but not the center. This will provide indirect heat for the cooking gammon in slow cooker, which will allow for even cooking without drying out the ham.

All of the shows are full of musical numbers right out of Broadway and the talented performers keep you mesmerized till the end.Realize as well that the Thomas Kinkade Christmas paintings are an ideal but somewhat unrealistic. They are images of what we would really like to experience, but very few do. Most of us are like window shoppers looking at those soft, fuzzy images of Kinkade's classic christmas ham scenes, but we do not have the ability to buy into it so we never go inside. We stand for a little while gazing at them and imagining ourselves there. Wouldn't it be wonderful just to be there? Away from all the problems and violence in the world. Away from our own struggles and sadness. Then we turn away, and the scene fades.A couple of weeks ago I heard a story about the difference between saying you believe something and actually believing. It went something like this...Using some of these dos and don'ts when planning your next Christmas party should help you have a successful, fun-filled Christmas party, enjoyed by everyone in attendance.
