Dipping into the Community Pool: November 18

This week there’s a couple of good articles on depression, which seems to increase during the winter holidays.  Also, a local church made a thoughtful Christmas video that you might like to watch with your children.  Add to this some thoughts on technology and Thanksgiving— it’s a wrap.
