  • So I hear you are in the market for a resolution?
    How about one that doesn’t cost anything, doesn’t require the purchase of any additional equipment and doesn’t require a special location in your house?
    If this sounds intriguing, then let’s build some assets. I’ll even try and package it the way you need it … I would like you to build some assets. I really need you to build some assets. I implore you to build some assets and finally, I demand that you build some assets!
    I did have one a little harsher, but I’ll save that for those of you who need to discuss it — or for midway through the year.

  • From all of us at the Los Alamos Monitor to all of you... We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  • Pope Benedict XVI celebrated Christmas Eve Mass on Saturday night, kicking off a two weeks of public appearances that will test his stamina.

  • BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AP) — Tens of thousands of tourists and Christian pilgrims packed the West Bank town of Bethlehem for Christmas Eve celebrations Saturday, bringing warm holiday cheer to the traditional birthplace of Jesus on a raw, breezy and rainy night.

    With turnout at its highest in more than a decade, proud Palestinian officials said they were praying the celebrations would bring them closer to their dream of independence.

    Bethlehem, like the rest of the West Bank, fell onto hard times after the Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation broke out in late 2000. As the fighting has subsided in recent years, the tourists have returned in large numbers.
