Free Christmas MP3 from Amazon: MercyMe


The 23rd day of "Amazon's 25 Days of Free Christmas Music" features MercyMe and a great rendition of "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear".

This song is great and now a favorite of mine.  It's off MercyMe's Christmas Sessions album.  Can't say I'm a big fan of the Christian band MercyMe, but i do like their sound and this song.

Amazon out of Kindle DX


They have been out for a few days, yes Amazon is currently saying that Kindle DX's are now running at a 3-5 week wait.  The DX is apparently selling very well. so well that Amazon has currently run out.  Kindle 2 Internationals are still available, and you can still order one and have it by Christmas.  How cool is that?

The Kindle is having another record month at Amazon.  Greta news all around for Kindle and ebook fans.



Today's Bowl Pick: The Poinsettia Bowl

They lace em up in San Diego tonight. Utah, which has won a bunch of bowl games in a row, and Cal of the Pac-10.

The poinsettia is a flowering plant that became a Christmas favorite in the 16th Century. The Poinsettia Bowl was founded in 2005. Past winners were Navy, TCU, Utah, and TCU again. I see Utah chalking up another bowl win.

Bowl Record So far:  1-3


Waffle House: Open for Service on Christmas


If you are lucky enough to live near a Waffle House, or will be traveling on Christmas you already know that the Waffle House is open 24/7/365.

That means that they are open on Christmas, so after you open those presents under the tree, send someone out to your neighborhood WH and carry out breakfast.  Waffles, eggs, grits, omelets, and scattered, smothered, covered, and chunked.  This will get your digestive system warmed up for the the big Christmas Dinner to come later that day.  The Waffle House basically "shocks" your system and anything else you eat that day will taste great.  Not sure about that warm fruitcake Grandma brought, but what the heck.  Put another waffle on for me...
