is straight-forward, no-nonsense, feelgood Christmas fare. Liona Boyd's instrumental guitar
is heavenly background music that would warm the heart of the coldest Grinch. If you find yourself surprised with a need to have free Xmas music real fast, it's just a pooter away, Santa Baby

A Very Wookie Christmas.
I'm speechless in horror. This actually happened? This actually made it to the airwaves? Thank heavens Lucas is keeping it deeply, deeply hidden forever.

Wow, check Amazon's new holiday look
. They've added even more new product lines (home improvement, software, and video games). How many folder tabs can they stuff into that navigation bar?
