Track Santa Claus

OBERLIN, Kansas (AP) – A postcard featuring a color drawing of Santa Claus and a young girl was mailed in 1914, but its journey was slower than Christmas. It just arrived in northwest Kansas.

The Christmas card was dated December 23, 1914, and mailed to Ethel Martin of Oberlin, apparently from her cousins in Alma, Nebraska.

It’s a mystery where it spent most of the last century, Oberlin Postmaster Steve Schultz said.

“It’s surprising that it never got thrown away,” he said. “How someone found it, I don’t know.”

Ethel Martin is deceased, but Schultz said the post office wanted to get the card to a relative.

Cocktail Recipe: Jesse's Christmas Jizz
1 oz Egg Nog
1/2 oz Amaretto
1/2 oz Kahlua

Pour Egg Nog in shooter glass. Slowly add Amaretto (this will make the jizz rise to the top). Slowly add Kahlua (Kahlua will settle between Amaretto and Egg Nog). Take the glass in hand, swallow, don't spit. Enjoy, and wipe your chin off.

CNET -- The authority on electronics, with professional and user reviews of cameras, computer, TVs and the like. Especially helpful are the site's boiling each product down to a single rank number and its ability to compare multiple items all on one page.

Amazon -- Even if you're not shopping online, it's a good idea to look up your target product on a major retailer site such as Amazon, where others who bought the same thing will share their views. And by the way, check out this amusing review.

Consumer Reports -- The best stuff is for members only, but its worth the investment, especially since you can join for one month for just $5.95. Holiday-related reviews featured on the site right now include GPS systems and sparkling wines.
