Re: OT:yet another e-card link and other ramblings

Wow, the season sort of got away from you, huh?   Glad to hear from you -
thanks for taking the time.

Too late for this year, but since your husband is a computer nut, I assume
he spends at least some time online.  Ask him to browse Amazon or similar
sites and any favorite sites he has for computer-related items throughout
the year.  Many large sites offer wish list capability.  When he sees
something he's interested in he can put it in his wish list for others to
find at gift-giving times.  My sister is an English professor and an avid
book reader, but I could never just pick out a book and be sure she'd A)
like it or B) hadn't read it yet. She also likes certain kinds of music and
videos.  Curently she probably has about 200 titles on her Amazon wish list
I can pick from, so the choice would still be a surprise to her.
