***We're gonna go get our tree today. We go to a tree farm and cut a fresh one. It lasts all month that way. That's been a tradition in our family since the kids were little. It's Mark & Johnny's turn to pick this year. Emily & I like short fat trees, they like great big trees, so we take turns. Looks like we'll get a big one this year. After we get the tree we're going to eat at Bellisimo, a little Italian restaurant here in Richmond. Looking forward to it!

***Gallup poll: Yes, Democrats, liberals favor socialism. Big surprise there.
***Neal Boortz's take on the fiscal cliff. I agree with him.
***8 smart ways to save on Christmas.
***Mystery tycoon gives out $100 bills to Sandy victims. Well, he's certainly doing more than Obama. Let me hasten to say I don't think the government should be in the business of bailing people out every time a weather tragedy strikes. Private donations and help drives do a much better job of that than the federal government. My beef is with the press coverage. The difference between the coverage of Katrina, when Bush was in office; and Sandy, now that The One is in office, is undeniable. Yet, the lefties who voted for Obama will deny it anyway. Easier than facing the truth, I guess.
***Mobile phones that bend, stretch, even fold into your wallet?
Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be.
***Obama calls GOP "Scrooges." Real presidential.
***Fun Christmas crafts. Why can't I think of this stuff?
***Flattering fits for curvy bodies. I like that. "Curvy" sounds so much better than "fat."
***50 with no retirement savings? What to do now.
"Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and
try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and
work: You don't give up." -- Anne Lamott
