Yes, I’m working on Christmas Day. I hope all of you are having a great Christmas or at least a nice day off. It’s raining here so it’s not exactly a white Christmas, more of a wet and drab one… Anyway we’ve got a bunch of news, I was going to wait until after the holiday to post it, but it’s adding up, so I figure why not get it out of the way.
