12 days of Christmas: 

On the 10th day of Christmas my true love sent to me Ten Lords A-leaping. The ten commandments: 1) You shall have no other gods before me; 2) Do not make an idol; 3) Do not take God’s name in vain; 4) Remember the Sabbath Day; 5) Honor your father and mother; 6) Do not murder; 7) Do not commit adultery; 8) Do not steal; 9) Do not bear false witness; 10) Do not covet. (Exodus 20:1-17)

Davidson basketball:  Since I promised to report back … First half was fun … 😦

Davidson managed a 29-29 tie at halftime, a testament to its game plan and aggressiveness despite the prolonged absence of center Jake Cohen, who picked up his second foul 2 minutes, 38 seconds into the game and spent most of the half on the bench.

De’Mon Brooks’ relentlessness on the boards (he finished with 12 rebounds) allowed Davidson to stay even through the first 20 minutes but that was as good as it would get for the Wildcats (7-6).

Duke scored the first 12 points of the second half, its offense finally finding a rhythm against the Wildcats’ defense. Cook, Kelly and Thornton were instrumental in the run, which left the Wildcats in an increasingly desperate situation.

The Wildcats, who missed eight of 10 3-point attempts in the first half, found a brief spark in the second but could get no closer than eight.

They will remember the uncommonly high number of point-blank shots they missed against the Blue Devils.

“Coach kept telling us we had to fight for 40 minutes. That stretch in the second half killed us,” said Davidson guard Tyler Kalinoski, who finished with nine points.

 Starbucks, recycling, not waste:

Starbucks Corp. (SBUX), the world’s largest coffee-shop operator, began selling reusable plastic cups for $1 at its U.S. and Canadian stores today.

The white plastic cup has the Starbucks logo on it and holds a tall or grande size drink, Haley Drage, a Starbucks spokeswoman, said in an e-mail. The Seattle-based brewer already offers a 10-cent discount to its customers who bring in a reusable mug.

Starbucks served 1.9 percent of drinks in customers’ personal tumblers in its global company-owned stores in 2011, according to its latest global responsibility report. It wants to serve 5 percent of beverages in reusable cups by 2015, the report shows.

Northern Lights, Finland, bucket list:  

Northern Lights Season Is Starting !! Are you Ready ?!!

Renting a glass igloo in Finland to sleep under the Northern Lights.

Aurora season has been in high gear for nearly a month in Abisko, and it looks as though this year could be something very, very special, We are entering the peak of the solar maximum, and if history is any indicator we should see a marked increase in aurora activity.
