So, slow news day around here but that's OK. Good excuse to stay within and do some crossword puzzles. Doris is using her dowtime productively by working on her stocking stuffers: OinkiesTMand PupperonisTM.
It's also a good excuse to share some more quotes; this time with a theme of simplicity:

~ Andrew Carnegie ~
You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.
