Thanks, Paul--great way to waste some time--I like your selection. But I'd also nominate those several videos PDD had profiling interesting jobs people have in Duluth, especially the profile of the Kenspeckle press folks. Those were fun and interesting. Here's to hopes for a good crop of 2013 videos!

I am just a tweeny bit disapointed that my flood videos that (accidentally) crashed the website weren't picked. Then again I guess I should just be happy that everyone was so understanding. I know just enough about blogging to be slightly dangerous.
