Business Week lists what it considers the most important products of 2007 – And it looks like an Apple catalog. The first 4 products are from Apple: the iPhone, OS 10.5 Leopard, MacBook Pro, and Apple TV. We own two of these 🙂
We had a little snow this morning (12/9/2007) . I always thought my place looked good in snow. The ponderosa pine (very front of yard) and the juniper (left side of photo) seem to hold the snow – sort of like a flocked Christmas tree. I wonder if that’s where the idea came from.
Only someone who lived in the desert for 20+ years could get excited about a little snow. We get some snow here in Prescott, but not enough that it gets to be a problem. I went to college (SUNY New Paltz, class of ’77) in upstate NY, so I do know what a snow problem is.
And 1903 is when record keeping started. What, you did not hear this on CNN? How could that be?

When I was taking the class for my NRA range safety officer training, they told us that someone on a shooting range was 130 times more likely to be injured by choking on food that by gunfire. Don’t have a link for this, sorry.
One of our Christmas traditions is to give restaurant gift certificates. Our families already have way too much stuff and don’t need any more. But everyone likes to eat out. This is especially true during the holiday season when time is at an even greater premium than usual. We do buy gifts for our grandchildren, there is always something they want.
The other day I went into Applebees for some gift cards and got a surprise: For each $50 certificate I bought I got a card worth $10. For the math challenged this is a 20% discount. I can either give the card I bought and the added $10 card – giving a $60 gift for the price of $50 or keep the $10 card for my own use and thus get a 20% discount on the purchase.
