(singing like Bing & Bob) We're off on the road to Chicago... For the past several years, my wife and I brave the elements and the crowds to give our three children the Chicago Christmas Experience - Michigan Avenue, The John Hancock Center, and that jewel on State Street - Marshall Field's.

Some of you may know but for others, the store that was featured in the movie "Miracle On 34th Street" (a four letter word in our house with an apostrophe S) purchased Marshall Field's and removed their name off the marquee - an unpardonable sin that pure Chicagoans will never forgive or forget.

We're gone for three days! Another weekend Christmas trip means a chance for you to check your 2006 downloading season scorecards and catch up on anything you've missed:


Have a great weekend everyone!
