About Santa- News You Can Use!

I was listening to a 50,000 watt Midwestern AM radio "blowtorch" on my way to work the other night and heard a couple neat tidbits about our friend Saint Nick that need to be passed on to your kiddies-
Apparently a record number of children fall into the "Good" column this year. That means Santa will have a record load of toys on his sleigh. North Pole coordinators are asking parents to limit the amount of cookies and milk left for Santa in order to reduce the amount of weight the reindeer will have to tug airborne. (Notes to Santa are still encouraged and appreciated!)

Those of you with "Onstar" equipped vehicles that will be traveling with your kids Christmas Eve get a treat: Santa has apparently worked out a deal with Onstar...
On Christmas Eve you can press your "Onstar" button to inquire about Santa's progress around the world, thereby allaying kiddo's fears that Santa may be running late or miss them entirely. (Now I'm wishing I had an "Onstar" vehicle... I wish I wasn't working Christmas Eve... you can bet I'd find someone with kids and a GM car so we could all see how well this system works!)
The big day is less than a week away now. Be safe out there!

Heavy sigh. Yeah, I'm working Christmas Eve as well. You'd think with 30 years on the force I'd be able to take that off. But, with the complement of deputies at my site, and the dearth of fellow supervisors, no, that ain't gonna happen. Things change, that's true, but I sure wish I had my other job back in Training. Running EVOC was my dream job.

Thanks for adding me to your blogroll. Consider yourself added to mine as well.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, sir.

I, like the two of you, should be working Christmas Eve but I decided to take it off in order to be able to spend the day with my family.

The On-Star thing is simply cool.
