Christmas Interview With Mike Paul


Mercy: What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
Mike: One of my favorite Christmas traditions that we used to have every year when I was growing up was an old mixed cassette tape of Christmas music. We used to play this particular tape every year from when I was born, up until probably just before I went off to college. We had a cassette player in a cabinet under the TV that used to only come out at Christmas. The tape was full of Christmas Classics and it’s funny because we got so familiar with the tape over the years that everyone in the house would instantly know what song to expect next when one finished. I think the tape either got lost over the years or it broke over time but to this day if there’s a song we hear on the radio that was on the tape we always expect a particular song to follow and we’ll all sing it in unison. It’s a nice thing to have.

Mercy: What is your favorite Christmas memory?
Mike: I suppose you could count the mixed tape as a Christmas memory too, seeing as we no longer have it. But I’d have to say my favourite Christmas memory is probably the year I got my first electric guitar. I don’t think I put it down  over that whole Christmas holiday. It was a lovely black and white Stratocaster that came with a little amp. I think I wrote some of my first ever songs with it too. 

Mercy: Favorite Christmas movie?
Mike: I think my favorite Christmas movie is Scrooged, the one where Bill Murray is the head of a TV Station. It makes me laugh every time I watch it. The part where he meets the ghosts of Christmas present and she hits him with a toaster, I can actually feel a chuckle coming on thinking about it. 

Mercy: Favorite Christmas song?
Mike: I have a couple of Christmas songs that I love, The Christmas song, So This Is Christmas. But I think my favourite Christmas song is probably the Mariah Carey version of Jesus Oh What A Wonderful. The bass line at the end of that song gets me every time.

Mercy: Must-have Christmas food?
Mike: My must have Christmas food would have to be stuffed Turkey with a little bit of cranberry sauce, absolutely delicious.

Mercy: White or green Christmas?
Mike: I think I’d have to go with a green Christmas. I love the idea of a white Christmas but Ireland is in no way prepared for snow when it comes compared other countries. I know I probably sound like a grumpy old man but I’m much more a fan of the heat than the cold. If it was possible to wake up on Christmas morning and there was like 6 inches of snow after falling, you could go make your snow angels, snowmen and have your snowball fights. Then when you wake up the next day and things were back to normal. That would ideal.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
