To those of you that remember 60 minutes commentator Andy Rooney..this may sound a little like him.

Have you ever noticed that when you volunteer or are drafted to host family members for the holidays, that all of a sudden you find all of these little imperfections in your house? With the help of some friends, patched and re-painted my dining room and touched up some walls in my living room that were looking a little ruff. Yesterday due to the impending at that time repairs, the tree has now finally gone up and a few other decorations. Also yesterday more "goodie" baking took place. Yes your favorite midday announcer loves to cook and bake.  More on this next time.
