Vintage Footage Reveals How NORAD Tracks Santa

The Unwritten Record

This Christmas Eve, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) will have tracked Santa Claus’s journey around the world for 60 years.

Colonel Harry Shoup began the tradition in 1955, after receiving a phone call from a child expecting to reach Santa Claus. The misdirected call was the result of the child reversing two numbers of a Santa Line phone number printed in a Sears advertisement.

Webslinging for 2015! Back to back links

Tea Rex

Something from the man behind the can.
I thought I’d start this blog post a bit differently than my usual, lazy, reposting style that has become my crutch. I miss my old blog patterns, filled with random bits of info and pictures. My stats show that I could use something..anything to make some noise! With that said, these links caught my eye. And now they have caught yours as well!
