I plan to return to writing next week on January 2, 2023. The City of Spokane City Council and Spokane County Commissioners don’t re-convene until next year—and I need to recharge my batteries.

Here’s the link: The Hidden History of Santa Revealed! (To read it you may need to click a “No Thanks” button to get past the subscription offer.)
