Despite the present recession and future economic concerns this year, we all still have a lot to be thankful for. The fires have died, hope is on the horizon, and we have nowhere to go but up. And now as Christmas draws nearer, we can be thankful for the awesome gift ideas available this season to make even the trickiest person to buy for on your list a snap. Gadgets. Some pointless, others practical but everyone loves the newest gadget on the market and Wicked Lasers is the first place to look for that special someone who has everything but a laser.

Guess what? I'm another year older today. My, these birthdays just sneak up on a person when you're not looking. I must admit, however, I always like the way I feel when it is my "special" day because it is just that - special. I share this day with my twin sister, Elaine, who lives in Santa Barbara. We were surprise May baskets for my mother and father, lo those many years ago. Nobody, not even the doctor, knew two babies would arrive that day. I came first and there was much joy on my arrival.
