I’m getting ready to hit the highway, to add more CO2 to the greenhouse and help prevent future white Christmases, on my way to Grandma’s house. The gifts are wrapped, even the goat and the chickens. The mini van has had it’s last minute $900 emergency repairs, right on schedule. The children are warned not to fight in the car on pain of coal in their stockings.

Here’s wishing you and yours a safe and joyous holiday. See you in four or five days.
