In an effort to beat the run on the common "best of," "year-end," and "top ten" lists that we see so often around Christmas and New Years, I have decided to make things a little easier for you.
By giving you my list early. This means it does not drown in the sea of copy-cats but also means you can add things to your Black Friday shopping list. I know, how nice of me!
So without further gabbing, here's my "best of" list for 2009!
