I know we have discussed Bronner's and I think the National Christmas Center has been mentioned before too.

The only problem with all of those is, they are at least an hour drive from the nearest major airport. So it might be better to say, plan the convention for Louisville and then plan a day trip or even an overnight trip to Santa Claus, Indiana. That way everyone could carpool or we could even rent a couple of passenger vans to get everyone there.

My sister went with her neighbor today to the corners office and she said it was just tragic. The corner told her that her husband had been driving in the slow lane of the interstate when a semi that had been sitting in the median decide to come back onto the road. The semi came out at a really slow speed and Scott tried to swerve but didn't have enough time and ran into the back of it. The worse part though was that he mostly likely would have survived if it hadn't taken so long to cut him out of his work van.


In other news, Boeing confirmed that they are going to lay off 800 employees starting in 2 weeks. My BIL has been there a little over 2 years so he's not sure how far up the chain he is. It doesn't make sense though. They say there's not enough work for them but yet they are on mandatory overtime and working weekends.

I am keeping Stephanie in my prayers xo Having dealt with the coroner's office here myself, I know how sad it is xo

Yes, we want an MMC "reunion" =)
Even though most of us haven't really met in person, we have a wonderful connection. That's a great idea made, to meet closer to an airport & road trip it the rest of the way!

That is heartbreaking. Praying for the family.

That's too bad, and how scary for the employees. Your BIL, sister and their family are in my prayers.

How tragic...I will say prayers for the family its just heartbreaking!

That is awful. It makes me sick to see co's doing this...They are forcing employess to work like crazy..probably trying to instill fear and indimidation on what could happen if they "complain" then they still lose their jobs. I hope and pray this country and it's economy continue to get better.

I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!
