Where has the year gone? I can’t believe we’re in the midst of the Christmas Holiday Season once again. This time of year we seem to spend a little more than usual, eat a bit more than usual, and yet we’re happy to do so. Visits with family and friends, holiday office parties, and that visit to the Mall to see Santa. It’s a time for good cheer,wishing well to loved ones, and when you’re just plain pooped out it’s time to sit with that cup of nog and waching a good Christmas movie.
