Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Two Weeks To Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like...dirt around here. The snow we had yesterday morning melted quickly, and we're back to mud. The mountains got a couple of feet; we only got an inch. 
    More's supposed to be coming in soon.
    I have lots to do. That's a fact. But it's more fun to wrap presents and think about goodies. Even the Brick, the quintessential Scrooge, is willing to watch a Christmas movie now and then, and listen to holiday music. 
    What fun to think about this...instead of work that needs to get done! (Ah well.)

Vintage Christmas finds. Oooh....   (From Living Rich On The Cheap)

Is The Walking Dead going down the tubes?  Readership has dropped like a rock since Season 7's first (bloody) episode. I must admit -- it's refreshing to find out I wasn't the only one grossed out by Negan's antics.

A new Leonardo da Vinci drawing discovered -- by accident!

Why every homeowner needs an emergency fund -- no matter what.   (From Len Penzo)

A bulldog who loves a belly scratch: hey, that's more important than anything else!



The voter count in Wisconsin is final...and Trump actually gained votes, instead of losing them. Other state recounts have been shut down, including Pennsylvania's.

Engagement rings -- are they really that important? (I never had one; we couldn't afford it. Instead, we purchased the best-possible gold wedding rings with our limited funds. Those rings have lasted for nearly 35 years, and are much more valuable now than what we paid. I'd say that was a good investment.)

Ten skeletons found in, under and around castles.  (From Listverse)

Glass rings and bracelets -- found during the Temple Mount Sifting Project. That's right -- Herod's Temple (or Fort?) in Jerusalem.

Weird (and clever) frugal tricks to save money.

Be sure your (internet) lies will find you out -- especially when you use other people's photos and info.

Make your holiday trip a profitable one, by delivering something. Hmmm... (From Surviving and Thriving)

Youtube's full of Christmas classics, including these fun cartoons. Enjoy!





Have a great week.
