Christmas Crunch levity

I received a few nice, light thoughts over the Christmas period.  One was an email that told the story of the monkey buying man … Once upon a time a man appeared in a village and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each. The villagers, seeing that there were many…
