It’s the day before Christmas and at my house we have been cooking for days getting things prepared that can be prepared early. I haven’t spent as much time on the computer as usual as it’s been family time. This week will be a lot more so I don’t know how much blogging I will be doing. Hopefully everyone else is spending time with family and friends as well. A great time to avoid the Internet. I did grab a few links to share with you today though. I’m assuming some people will read them during the week when (if) they get bored. If nothing else these links give some search engine “juice” that they deserve.
