It's Getting Close To Christmas...

...so it's time for all good boys and girls to start thinking about one of the most important traditions of the Christmas season -- the NORAD Santa Tracker! This year, NORAD has teamed up with Google, so it looks like they'll be moving their technology into the Naughties. Instead of having to play the videos with something like Media Player like we have before, they'll actually be in YouTube format. I'm just hoping they'll update the annual boomer flyover video.

Here's an intro to their updated web site:

Speaking of money (Christmas...presents...need I say more?), I want to offer a one-time piece of advice to all submariners and their loved ones regarding someone to tune in to when it comes to great thoughts on the evolving world of investments.

His name is John Mauldin (website).

Just have a look, read an article or two, and see what you think. John is a very bright light in an otherwise very dingy world.

John does not manage money these days, but can point you toward those who do if you're so inclined. If not, just stay apprised on what this great mind has to say. You won't regret it.

Thought to drop this "note in a bottle" to all submariners, current and former, as I know all too well from direct experience how there is otherwise little-to-no real knowledge shared on this front in the service.

Happy Holidays to all.

Let's try that again...the correct link didn't come across.

John's website is: http://www.johnmauldin.com/

This is intended as a helping hand, not spam. If the link gets messed up again, just Google for John Mauldin.

Ah...and here is an even better link:

http://www.frontlinethoughts.com/gateway.asp

This site gives the articles I've referred to.

Enjoy the reading...John's one of the best, and has the kind of bright mind that submariners can appreciate.
