movies on youtube?

Say it isn’t so! Well, it is, but before you get super excited; yes, YouTube does now have some feature-length movies that you can now watch on the site. This does is nice, until you see the selection . . . It really isn’t great. But, if you are a movie junkie that can stand the Good, The Bad and the Ugly of what has been produced, I urge you to try it out.

Did I mention that there are some movies out there for you Clint Eastwood fans (for a limited time only)? Such classics as, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and A Fistful of Dollars are out on the YouTube movies section until November 30th. All you need to do is visit the link below and please let me know what you think. I know what I will be doing this Thanksgiving break.

personalized santa video

Santa may me hard at work preparing for tomorrow’s flight around the world, but he still has time for sending a personalized video to your child! Santa now has technology called the Portable North Pole that makes a personalized video possible even when he is extremely busy. Mom and Dad just need to fill out a form and answer a few questions and then Santa will make a video for your child. Please note that this technology is first being rolled out in Canada, but will work for any child around the world. Santa (with the help of Mom and Dad) can have your child’s picture placed into the nice file next his or her name.

Try out the Portable North Pole and let me know what you think!

2008 santa tracker

norad-2008

Track the jolly old elf, Santa, this year as the North American Air Defense network (NORAD) will track him around the world as he delivers his bag of gifts to children all around the world. Some additions this year are the Kids Coundown section in which you can play fun flash games with the kids. In addition, NORAD has included a section where you can download a kml file that allows you to track Santa in 3D using Google Earth. Also as usual, NORAD will be posting videos of Santa as he makes his stops around the world. Be sure to visit the site on December 24th regularly to get updates!

Please note that I will be looking for posts with 2008 Santa sightings and hope to bring them to you later this week. Until then look around and make sure to keep your eye out for any of Santa’s reindeer!
