Thanksgiving 2008 in Review

Wow, can you guys believe that it’s New Year’s Eve already? I never did get around to talking about Thanksgiving, and it seems as if the time since then has been an absolute blur where I’ve got nothing done. So before stuff that happened in 2008 ceases to be relevant, I’m going to give you […]

2008 Retrospective / A Look to 2009
