Santa sightings!

This is a very cool thing for little kids! And, for that matter, big kids....

The North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) has been tracking Santa Claus on their radar systems for many, many years. In the beginning, their "sighting reports" were available by telephone and were carried by radio stations; nowadays, they can be accessed via computer.

It's all very entertaining and very sweet.

And I admit that I check in a few times each year myself....

PARENTHETICAL STATUS REPORT FROM HERE: So much for lying in bed snuffling and hacking. As soon as my laundry comes out of the dryer, I'm off to do some shopping for a house-bound neighbor whose children and grandchildren decided to stop by this evening. Fortunately, everything she needs can be purchased in sealed packages *coughs*....

Think happy thoughts :)

Still can't figure out my sound issue. I hope to try and make one later so...the sounds fairy better pay me a visit!

I'm glad there IS a Santa Claus, MrScribbler...you are such a sweet man.

Merry Christmas! (I know I said that 10 times already,lol.) {{HUGS}} and Love to you

"Merry Christmas" is often expressed when either or both parties don't feel "merry", so take it as a wish for peace and relaxation, from one friend to another.

Cheers to you and a raised glass, bro.
