The first week of December has come and gone and most of us procrastinators are finally beginning to start our Christmas shopping.  Shopping on line has become so easy lately, that this year, on line sales are rivaling "Black Friday" sales.  In some cases, you can order as late as Christmas eve and have your gift delivered on time!  So simple and convenient.
