Holiday Blog Slowdown
As it says in the item just below, I am off on a holiday trip, and will be away until almost the New Year. Blogging will be a little sporadic, at best. Possibly none at all, depending on the laptop and motivation situations.
Today I am off to the south. A visit with the kids, then we pile into the car and head to Florida to spend some time with their grandparents. Weíll see some movies, check out some restaurants, and generally have a good old time.

Another Year Winds Down
It is already upon us: planning for that final period of the year, the end of the holiday season.
ONE MORE NIGHT
This is the seventh night of Hanukkah. One more night to go. In many households this means the BIG DEAL presents come after the lighting of the candles tomorrow evening. Eight days of gift-giving (it would be much less comercial if this holiday was celebrated in August), capped off by the big, final night!
A while back we discussed those Canadians going to pot. Forget it. The Montreal Expos just let bullpen catcher Carlos Luis Perez go, after he plead guilty to charges of possession of 1.1 pounds (a half-kilo, is that some Canadian Imperial weight?) of marijuana.
Allow me to roam all over the blogeteria in this post-Turkey-weekend post.
Imagine what it would be like for the humans if turkeys had discovered America. Would Peter Minueturkey have bought the island of Manhattan? And for what, $24 worth of turkey feed?
