Christmas City, Wonderful City. All dressed up in snow and mistletoe.

Well, now you've done it, Paul Lundgren and Security Jewelers. Anyone who knows anything about Christmas knows that my brother in Omaha will take this as a personal challenge. Will he build a higher lighted Christmas tree with more free viewing? Oh yes. Will he outbid Bill Gates for this Christmas 45? Oh yes.

Will he, in fact, view these challenges as Christmas trifles that are worth spending his childrens' college funds, and his family's investments, to show that his home address in Omaha, Neb., is the place to be for all things holidays?

My brother laughs at the challenge.

Hmmm.  That is a lot of money for a 45 record that isn't personally delivered to your house by Merv Griffin.

Personally delivered to your house by Merv Griffin? Don't allow the Elevator Killer anywhere near your loved ones!

I had totally forgotten that!!!  Excellent point.  Maybe the Land Shark should deliver the record to the winner instead.
