Merry Christmas 2014

Merry Christmas 2014Well, it’s time for us to take a break and enjoy the Christmas season.  It is hard to believe that another year has already gone by, isn’t it?

We’re looking forward to bringing you another year of fun and useful tips, information, and resources.  We’ll post one more quote tomorrow, and then we plan to start up again early in January.

Meanwhile, if you are looking for something to read during those cold winter days, or if you are looking for last-minute gift ideas, we’d like to make a few recommendations.
