Jim and Lucy, I just want to say thanks for doing this. I'm on dial-up at FIL's rural location. The fastest connection I can get is 26.4 kps. The NORAD site has been unavailable to us whenever we spend Chr-stmas here. But Beorn and I are finding your updates nearly as exciting. So again, thanks!

Santa is now entering the United States Northern Command (http://www.northcom.mil/) Air Space. NORAD is getting reports from NASA that Santa is near Kennedy Space Center.
