Decking these unseasonably warm halls is so terribly convenient


    Christmas decorations are going up fast and furious in my Bel Air neighborhood. I think I have global warming to thank for that. I remember a couple of years ago when hanging icicle lights turned my fingers into icicles. This year, I kept wondering if this is what it feels like to decorate in Florida. I was really enjoying the warm weather, but then I rented Al Gore‘s “An Inconvenient Truth.” So now I’m still enjoying the weather, but I’m feeling guilty about it. And now it appears mother nature is delivering my penance. I have five strings of icicle lights strung together and the one that plugs them all into the electrical socket keeps dying, even though I’ve changed it out three times. If anyone knows what I’m doing wrong, please let me know. Thanks, and merry decorating.
