I have always been a little sad in the first few days following Christmas, because there's no more anticipation. But it's not quite as bad here as it was in the Midwest; here, folks tend to leave their Christmas lights up for the winter.
Two reasons. One - the lights help with the long winter nights, and two - it's cold & snowy out there! I'll be a loyal Alaskan and not mention "general sloth" as a contributing factor ...

The New York Times ("All the news that fits our agenda, we print") is crying, this morning, that the ATF's hands are tied by "legislative handcuffs and by loopholes in federal gun laws". Cry me a river. The ATF, along with the DHS and TSA are three of the greatest contributors to the growing tyrannical nature of the bureaucracy on the Potomac.

The snow that was originally forecast for us, yesterday and last night, failed to materialize. We got only three inches from a storm which the originally thought would bring a foot or so to southcentral Alaska. That 12"+ fell just south of here. Oh, well.
Our Christmas was a good one, and the girls bought me an iPod and docking station. I'll get to set that up in my office today.
It'll be a good day, and I pray yours is good, as well. Thanks for stopping by, friends.
