Joanie asked the question and they all sat back. "Mr. Slater? Can Santa Claus be black? Poor Mr. Slater didn't know what to say, Christmas vacation was twenty days away. There were snowflakes to cut and Window wreaths to be hung, Christmas cards to be painted, And Christmas songs to be sung. He hadn't time to think What Christmas was about, In twenty more days, School would be out! Why couldn't they wait And ask their questions then, When mommies and daddies Were home to answer them? "Mr. Slater? Can Santa be thin?" "Is Santa Claus always a him?" Mr. Slater looked at twenty pairs of eyes, Twenty children of every shape and size. He ate a bit of cracker and finished his drink.

GETkristiLOVE points out many of the great points of a big snowstorm in her blog. In response to her question of when was the last time you had to shovel your deck, the answer would be when the snow depth exceeds the height of your dogs ability to poop. It's at that point you go out and start clearing "zones" for your poochies to do their duty!

The good news is your lungs look good!

Woman Puts Baby Through Airport X-Ray By Associated Press LOS ANGELES - A woman mistakenly put her 1-month-old grandson through an X-ray machine at Los Angeles International Airport, authorities said. A startled security worker noticed the shape of a child on the carry-on baggage screening monitor and immediately pulled him out, the Los Angeles Times reported for a story in Wednesday's editions. The infant was taken to a local hospital, where doctors determined he did not receive a dangerous dose of radiation. "This was an innocent mistake by an obviously inexperienced traveler," said Paul Haney, deputy executive director of airports and security for the city's airport agency.

Finally got some pictures back from Brightroom that we ordered way back. These were taken at a run we did that was pretty fun, it took you through Coors field where the Rockies play, then Through the Pepsi Center across the ice where the Aves play, and finished at Mile High where the Broncos play. It was very fun to go through these venues instead of a typical run where you just motor along the streets or through some park. That's me pushing and my wife in the red beside me!
