1. The ol’ Tannenbaum--fake or real? When does it go up? And when does it come down?
We haven't had a tree for several years. Seems that we have been out of town every year for college graduations and other affairs. This year, we have the house torn up for interior repainting so no tree or any other decorations.

2. Shopping--fake or real? Oh, wait, that’s the last question. Here we are--do you wait until the last minute or plan ahead? Do you give gift cards?
Not much shopping . My wife gets whatever gifts we are sending and we don't normally give each other gifts although she always messes up the system by giving me something(but never the new guitar I ask for every year), and so far, I haven't caught on and broken the code.

3. And finally, where do you carry out your celebrating, of whatever sort it might be? At your house, at a relative’s house in the area, or out of town?
We don't do a lot of celebrating. I guess I am a natural Scrooge. Bah, Humbug!

Terry Oglesby says that it is cold in Alabama. I don't think it is very cold. Mid-thirties at the lowest and maybe even in the 40s. Then Terry is from down South and doesn't get the varied weather we North Alabama folk enjoy.

Jim at Unfreezing http://unfreezing.blogspot.com/ says he is grading papers and the stair method of asigning grades is so old schoool. Many years ago (Let's not talk about how many) a chemistry and math major friend took a required physical ed course. Jimmy wasn't a real physical sort of guy, so he took first aid as his required PE course. When the grades were released, Jimmy received a "C" and went to see the Prof since he had maxed all the tests and had spent a bit of time helping other students with the required individual projects. The Prof's answer was that of course Jimmy got a "C". If one of his PE majors took a math or chemistry course, that's the best they ever did!

I've been wondering about just how useful the Blogosphere is if you can't even give away a Mercedes. Now I admit that the Mercedes may not be the all time prime example of the marque but someone somewhere should have at least asked about the offer. So far, nothing, nada, nil, zip, not a question.
