It's not even thanksgiving, and there is already that yucky Christmas music playing on the radio!!! confused.gif Doesn't it get sickening enough playing that crap AFTER thanksgiving and having to put up with it till January?

Don't get me wrong, I love the Lord, I just hate that sickening music that has nothing to do with Him at all!

What's next, Are they going to start rolling out the Christmas tunes right after Labor Day?

Cal....It's only a little over a month away? It's a seasonal thing...a week or so from now and it will be all fine and good. It's only for a short time...it could be worse. And it's not gonna change! Why put yourself through it?

We started playing classic Christmas music a week ago....Dean Martin, Elvis, Bing Crosby....gotta work up to it, get in the mood, it helps soften the blows of the up comming Christmas debt. Grit your teeth, you'll get through it. It's like snuff, some people like it, some don't! grin.gif Hey, what about switching stations?

I don't suppose it's anything different then preparing for the summer or winter openers in advance? FleetFarm, Cabellas, Gander, they all come out with seasonal stuff well in advance of the actual event...of course you don't have to listen to a new reel, or a tip-up, or a pair of waders in their ads...but they are just trying to lighten peoples spirits and get people in the Christmas holiday mood!

I agree! The Philistine merchants have to sell, sell, sell and some college educated bozo told them Christmas Music puts people like us in the mood to spend, spend, spend. Personally, I just give a card with money in it and they can go buy what they like AFTER the Christmas sales are over and get it for 50% off. No shopping, No listening to dumb music, and more time to fish.

P.S. If they tell you giving money is NOT Christmas remind them that GOLD was one of the gifts they gave at Bethlehem!

I know one thing, the Boy Scouts best get to steppin with their wreaths if they want us for customers again this season! I danged near bought one from Cub when we went grocery shopping this morning.

If something doesn't develope by Friday, we'll be going back to Cub. Yesterday, we put up a nice little Balsam my wife picked out....get an early start on the fire hazard!

She has some gifts wrapped and under it already! I used to be a "Bah, Humbug!" but over the years, she has changed me and I helped!

Now I look forward to Christmas, why, we were even dancing to some Elvis Christmas music just this afternoon! cool.gif

Calvinist,

I agree with you. It's the season to avoid the radio and the malls. Christmas has become insanity. Time to hunker down with family and celebrate the real reason for the season.

I don' know about the rest of you, but Jingle Bell rock and "I saw momma kissing Santa Claus" every hour on a canned station are not my idea of classical Christmas music.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.
