Colder weather is here, and it's time to start thinking about the holidays. Gift shopping. Great times with friends and family. It's hard to believe the historic year of 2008 has almost come to a close.

We have plenty of Loreto content this week. We managed to get our hands on a BlackBerry Storm for a quick review. All that, plus Joan Crawford, Podcasts, kick a ginger?, solar update and more. Thanks for visiting StarkSilverCreek, and thanks for your supportive comments and emails.
