Catching Up With Christmas Part 2

Snow 3 - Kringle 0

So far I've thrown out my back, dislocated my shoulder and watched as a neighbor's buddy with a plow mounted on his truck shifted half a ton of snow from in front of the neighbor's drive and into mine (and then drove off). Time for a link break, if only a little one..

Hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas this past weekend!

Your faithful correspondent has returned to hearth, home and internet  a couple of days later than expected. Twenty or so inches of wet white stuff pleasantly prolonged my Rockwell-esque New England Christmas but now that I'm back in good old New Amsterdam it's all about the shoveling.

I'm on my way back outside to excavate our driveway but I should be able to begin catching up with the last week or so's worth of yuletide linkage once I've done my husbandly duty.

See you in a little while....

Have a Very Merry Christmas! (..see you next week..)

Night Before Christmas #429 - Page 12

I've promised Mrs. Kringle that the next few days are computer free so I can concentrate on celebrating Christmas instead of just reading about it

Thanks very much to all the generous musicians, artists, writers and festive bloggers who made this such an amazing holiday season!

I'll be back next week with a megapost or two catching up with whatever I'll be missing this weekend.

Remember to keep checking in on your favorite sites as I'm sure there are lots more holiday goodies yet to be unveiled!

Merry Christmas !

Rich Russo's Anything, Anything Christmas Special (Dec 19th - 101.9 RXP)

When you're a blogger you find your inbox overflowing with pleas to plug an unending list of sites, bands, events, products and whatnot. I check out as many as I can and the best of them end up here eventually. But every once in a while something you already love shows up and you can't wait to share the news. That happened today and I'm thrilled to offer a well deserved plug for Rich Russo's free-form Christmas show coming up this Sunday night on my favorite radio station (101.9 RXP). Here's all the info you need...
This Sunday night, December 19th, Rich Russo will host his "Anything Anything" show Christmas Special from 9pm-12am on 101.9 RXP (NY's #1 Rock Station). It will also be streamed live on Rich's show is the only free form radio show in the New York area.  It will feature some of the best holiday music you haven't heard, including rare 45's, deep album cuts, holiday songs from local bands and much more. Every night up until Christmas Eve, Rich will also be giving away free MP3's on his website and the giveaways will be announced via twitter @djrichrusso
