Monday Musings - December 2, 2013

1. December crept onto the scene over the weekend. There are only 22 shopping days left until Christmas. 

2. If someone says it's not a competition, it probably is.

3. Black Friday is black because people shop from before the sun rises until well after it sets.

4. The annual Black Friday family Axis and Allies game ended historically accurately again. My dreams of world domination were crushed by the Allies once again.

5. We visited the annual Kennedy Kreiger Institute Festival of Trees this weekend. My favorite tree was the Baltimore Orioles 60th Anniversary tree. How cool was it that I decided to wear some Orioles gear?

6. How awesome was the last play of the Auburn-Alabama game? Not in terms of who won, but in terms of how a tied score 28-28 factored into an ill-advised Alabama field goal attempt that led to Auburn's thrilling 109 yard run back win. I wish I had seen it live!

7. Read an interesting article about how root rot is threatening Christmas Tree production.
