“Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” Her name is Susie Gall.   Okay, maybe “Santa” is stretching my importance a tad, but I do consider myself one of Santa’s elves.

Today is December 1st. You might be feeling a tiny bit stressed thinking about all the Christmas goodies needed to get through this month of parties and family gatherings. I hope this present I bring today eases the pressure, if even just a little.
