I would like to be around that tree, too! I envy you your sales tax holiday. We get nothing like that here in California!

I'd like to be someplace else with all of you instead of here today. With mugs of cocoa around a large Christmas tree.

It's been high here too. When you walk through the grass you get a brownish red pollen all over your shoes. I'm not quite sure where it's from. It has me coughing though.

Hope you both feel better!!!

I have been thinking about it!

How do regular (non-Blu-ray) DVDs look in HD? I'm hoping they're even better.

I remember when we had a VCR, I couldn't read the credits at the end of "A Christmas Story"---they were bright red and blurry on VHS. Then when we got a DVD player and I watched the DVD, the credits were sharp and clear. I'm wondering how much HD improves on SD.

It's a (usually) annual gimmick one weekend in August to help boost retail sales. (I say "usually" because some years the Commonwealth decides not to do it.) It helps a little if you've been holding off on a big-ticket item like a TV, because sales tax is 6.25% in Massachusetts. We'll probably save enough to get a modestly priced lunch somewhere. As we say, it beats a sharp stick in the eye. It's limited to purchases under $2500.
