Over the next couple of months visitors to Simplify Christmas (yes, visits have remained consistently high, even through the spring and summer months of 2008) will notice some fairly dramatic changes in the organization and appearance of the site as I prepare for the official start-up date of November 1st.

Since it’s not yet midnight here, on the West Coast of North America, let me say, one more time: MERRY CHRISTMAS!
