The holiday season started this past week with family visits and an ice storm which was the worst in fifteen years that literally shut down Dallas with over 250,000 homes losing power. We lost power twice and were camping out a bit dealing with temperatures in the low twenties and chill factors under 10. Ice was and still is everywhere. For you northerners that are challenging our collective manhood, try it all with not one sand truck anywhere in sight. These folks here don't do snow and ice. And this is early in our very short winter.
In this final Christmas issue of the Newsletter I have purposely avoided many of the topics we have covered in the blog. Because of ongoing events we have updates here of both the Detroit bankruptcy
and the Hopi mask sale in Paris.
