December Daily: Track Santa Through Norad!

This is a fun thing to do for the kids -- keep an eye on Santa's progress on Christmas Eve! For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight. It's a funny story how it started -- all by accident, as you can read on their website: The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement for children to call Santa misprinted the telephone number. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations "hotline." The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born. In 1958, the governments of Canada and the United States created a bi-national air defense command for North America called the North American Aerospace Defen

Today = Girl's Day!

Miss Sarah and I will drop a few cookie packages off, then go to the cool Indian Buffet for lunch (she loves the Chicken Tikka Masala and Mango Ice Cream!). After that, we will be close to Pawn America and might have to hunt through the $1 DVDs.... THEN we have a shift for the Salvation Army! She has her Santa hat and I have the mini candy should be fun. :) Dinner is in my new crock pot so it's ready to hit the table when the Hubster is home. It should be a pretty cool day! After the Kiddo is in bed, I will finish the Sentry Foods match up and a "how to"on those cute Santa Grahams from the school party. There will be another Facebook Flash Giveaway too! So....have an AWESOME day yourself!

Don't want to cook on Christmas?

That was us, at Thanksgiving -- after shortly seeing Mom through her open heart surgery...and Pop through his back surgeery the month before. We ate at the Avenue Bar (great food!) A LOT of places are open on the holdiday (besides Chinese restaurants) -- Madison On The Cheap created a great list HERE.  It's a lot longer list than you might think -- with some pretty darned great places to eat!
