Sunday musings: NORAD tracks Santa, hotel toiletry brands, Boston prepared me for travel

NORAD goes on Santa Alert with a widespread volunteer effort that goes through Christmas Eve. What about the little gifts that hotels leave every time we visit — those mini-bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash? And, can where you live, ready you for travel? A woman from Boston thinks so.

Tracking Santa with NORAD

The most frequent flier of all and, perhaps the most famous, is Santa. He has logged more miles that any mortal frequent flier as he zips across the planet and never faces delays caused by snowstorms (in fact he relished them) or bad customer service (who would give Santa a hard time). His world of flying is, shall we say different.

FAA and NORAD OK Santa’s flight

You and your little ones can follow his progress as he enters our region by dialing (609) 485-6000. Special evening reports will be updated at 6:30, 7:30, and then finally at 8:30 p.m. (EST) courtesy of the FAA. The NORAD site is fabulous. Just before this posted, there were videos of Santa cruising across Syndey then Darwin Australia on his way across the globe. With many enjoyable holiday projects being nixed this year because of budget constraints and privacy concerns, it is nice to hear of some programs that are going strong. One is the North American Aerospace Defense Command's (NORAD) annual Santa tracking public service. This year, Santa's tracking will be taking advantage of Twitter, Facebook and other social media.
