Cool Christmas Presents #3
Continuing on the theme of enjoyable (electronic) Christmas gives, may I present the "iLive Home Music System with Built-in Subwoofer & Dock for iPod"
Yes it's a mouthfull but also an earfull. It's really heavy and shiny, both good things for things that play music. It has real ooomph.
It plays any kind of iPod, has a radio, remote, clock and even input jacks to make your non-iPods kick out the jams. But best of all it sounds good and isn't that the point of one of these things? Sarah gives it two thumbs up.
Cool Christmas Presents #2
Another popular gift was the Crosley Rochester. Katie wanted something she could play classic Jazz records on. What could be better than a circa 1940s replica record player?
It also plays cassette tapes and CDs, it even has a jack to plug in your iPod for those staunchly planted in the digital age.
I think Woody Herman and his Thundering Herd are getting the most spins these days . . .

Cool Christmas Presents
Here is one of our cool Christmas presents this year. It's a little dohicky that you clip to your visor in your car and it acts as a speaker phone for your cell phone using bluetooth.
It's not very big, has a pretty good built in speaker and can connect with your phone anywhere in your car (it even connects from our kitchen when the car is parked outside). As a bonus it has an FM transmitter built in as well so you can listen to your calls (or music on your phone) over your car stereo. Acutally it's the best FM transmitter I have heard.
If you are looking for a hands free device for talking in your car, you might want to check this out. Here is the link

Try Something New
p.s one of the new features are Polls - I have one in the top right of the page - choose wisely
This year - Something Different
Wait a minute . . . . that was a different picture
Actually, I think this was taken at DisneyQuest at the Pirates of the Caribbean "ride". We had a great time. It was December and the place was decorated to the 9s for Christmas. There were a lot of people there but it was worth it because of all the decorations and special events.
In fact, we (as a family) have decided to return to Disney this holiday season instead of the traditional (read over the top) gift deluge. We are going to DisneyWorld in Florida and staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort. We stayed there many years ago and had a great time.
We interrupt this blog post for an important weather update . . . it's snowing . . . real snow . . . in Houston as I am typing this message.
OK - so we are really getting into the Christmas spirit now. We will let you know how this alternate Christmas celebration goes over.
