As indicated above, this is indeed it. The end. Close the book. Bring down the curtain. The fat lady is singing. Cue the trumpets to play "Taps". Turn out the lights, the party's over. Put out the dogs and bring in the cat. Time to put it to bed.

This is normally the spot in years past when I've stated "download 'em now because after January so-and-so, I'm yanking the links". Not this year. I'm leaving them up.

The collection has grown to a point where it would take me a week straight to re-upload these again and I'd rather not go through that process next fall. My laziness is your gain.

If you're heading somewhere this Christmas Eve, please get there safely. Not only is tomorrow Christmas Day but I'm posting my 2008 Yuleblog Sampler after the kids open their presents and eat breakfast - can't miss that!
