Now I get up, like a creaky old man, and stare all this through frosty eyes this morning...it all seems to fresh.

You should all know that some things are going to change -- dramatically change -- here on the website in the coming weeks. But this thread will NOT change. It stays and will only get better and better.
i'm scared! i hope it's change for the better?

Almost right. She is on letterman every year for his christmas show on the 23rd of december and sings Christmas: Baby Please Come Home. It has been like 17 years in a row now.

I'll be looking forward to the changes. I agree with Johnor that it is kind of scary to think that the place we love so much is going to change but I am sure you will do a great job and that it will be better than ever.

I don't think it is anything to fear. Couple of reasons -- first of all, the script that powers the site has been upgraded and it forces us to change some things. We don't look to take anything away -- just add to what we've already got.

I am very resistant to changing what is traditional and nothing has been more traditional than our look. Our design has been basically the same since our first online efforts back in 1994.

But the time has come to update it and that more than anything else is what most will notice and comment about. We're heading into our 19th year overall in our Christmas efforts and we've caused worlds old and new to collide here for a long time. That has caused for a muddled presentation overall and we need to clean it up a bit -- make it shiny and more efficient. It will be the foundation for the next 5 years or so.

I am proceeding slowly and as I get things closer the crew -- of which Crown is a part -- will get to play, test and suggest tweaks before we just dump it on everyone. I am attempting to make the old available with the new for those who won't like the change. Don't know yet if that is going to be possible but we're putting in the extra work just in case. I don't want to lose anyone because we have to do this.

We've grown a ton -- and that, I suppose is more of a reason for doing this than anything else. More people will come. And we've just got to make room for them. But like the great features of any home, this thread will not change and it will forever have a prominent place. It has become a singular feature of MMC.

Happy New Year!!!

Unfortunately, I disappeared for a few days. I've since returned to Ottawa and had to get my bearings straight after living back in the Sault for three plus weeks. Nice to see that the new Christmas Countdown has already begun and I look forward to counting down with each and every one of you throughout the year. I greatly enjoyed 2009 and cannot wait for 2010 and the new decade will bring!!

Happy New Year everyone! I am so excited to see the new countdown has begun! My son, daughter, and I stayed up past midnight. Hubby did not. My son was determined to stay up and he did. He is still asleep. He will probably regret staying up so late. I plan on doing nothing but resting and watching football games all day. I love the Bowl games. Whatever you have planned today, I hope you have a great day.

I am looking forward to it, too!


Also, there is only 48 days until pitchers and catchers report to spring training.
