From a personal standpoint, one of the things I enjoy most about my job is putting together the "Good Guys of the Month" awards. And what I enjoy the most about that process is when December rolls around and I can select the "Good Guys of the Year."
One of the joys this time of the year are all of the specialty items found at grocery stores, which brings us to the latest edition of "Five and Five" -- five things I am deeply interested in, and five things that get little more than a shrug.
The calendar says December, parking lots are filled with holiday shoppers a crispness will soon be in the air. Christmas is on its way. That means it's time for our annual visit from Santa Steve.
One of the most interesting traditions of the Christmas season is the Christmas tree itself. We often take that brightly decorated Douglas fir in the corner of the living room for granted, but it actually has a rich holiday history.
