OK, as a request of my very good friend Kevin Lynott(a meteorologist with NOAA out in Wyoming) , today’s Fun topic is what is your favorite Christmas Holiday Season Movie. I have a few favorites that are always a must. Absolutely, National Lampoon’s Christmas Holiday Vacation is top of my list. Christmas Holidays with the Kranks (Ok, I’ll stop with the PC,) Elf, A Christmas Story…I like the newer movies if you couldn’t tell. Maybe your favorite is on this list from before 1991. Maybe it was one of the original Christmas Carols? I almost forgot about Emmet Otters Jug Band (36 comments)

Missy Caulk had asked me about my Email Signature block the other day, so I had promised her that I would write up a quick blog about how to make hers look like mine. I add the Feedburner to help promote my blog subscriptions.

I have multiple other email addresses associated with my other websites, but they (33 comments)
