Yes, I know I've posted this before; I'm posting it again because it's today's featured photo at New West Network! It's also one of my favorites.
Then, for an uplifting holiday story, go to Body and Soul. I had planned to post a note about donating today, but this is -- unsurprisingly -- no longer necessary. But you might want to contribute anyway, or donate for goodies, or just tell her that you value her work.
Finally, go visit Echidne. Just because a little balance is always good at this time of year.
