Good Morning, All. Another gray day today. The most we can hope for is that the rain will stop. Not that it really matters since we don't have any outside errands.

Weston Kosova at Newsweek had a good assessment of the Rupert Murdoch/Microsoft deal to list Murdoch's news sites solely with Bing for a generous payment from Microsoft. Some people may decide to pay for the content but many, like me, can't afford to. We will simply say "Oh, well, I sure would like to have read that. I guess I will simply go on to something else." I don't like Bing and don't care for the notion of going to two sites for what I used to get on one.

If you want a good laugh this morning head over to this MSNBC page and check out the cartoons on the right hand side of the page. Most of them do a good job of skewering the holiday shopping binge. I also loved, in a sardonically humorous way, the headline at the top which celebrates the just under 500k jobs lost as the 'lowest' in a year.

The sun has been out here but offers no warmth. We still have to wear our coats, there is a chill in the air. The dogs go out to do their business and run back in, jump on the couch and huddle in the blanket thats there for them :)

We are taking four days off, its been a long time since we have done that. Will try to come in and blog when I can. Take care and have a good one :)
