It’s Christmas Eve and I hope, like me, you are spending it with family friends.
I’m on “vacation” in Germany for awhile, but there is never really any true vacation in the world of blogging and Award Expert. Posts will be more limited over the next week to maximize time spent with my family, but continue to look for daily updates.

Here’s a look at the week’s top stories. I wish everyone a Happy Christmas or Happy Holiday and thank you for your continued readership.
