Just like last year, I'm up extra-early on Christmas Day. This time, though, joining me was the early airing of the Yule Log on the national version of WGN. I fell asleep early last night, because we had a fabulous, exhausting night, driving into Manhattan and bringing the dogs to see the tree at Rockefeller Center. Being Christmas Eve, it wasn't as crowded, and we were able to get fairly close.I didn't get to watch the entire WGN broadcast, but with showing the 2-hour version of the new 3-hour broadcast, it ended sort of abruptly, towards the end of "Bring a Torch Jeanette, Isabella" by Percy Faith. The video had just panned out and back in at the 2 hour mark, and the song just...ended. I knew it was coming, as David Rose's "The Christmas Tree" wasn't starting until 2:00:18, but it was a little jarring to just have the song end, and go right into a screen saying, "The following is a paid advertising." I know that next year, they will devote the 3 hours to the full log.Merry Christmas to everyone, and especially Joe and Chip, for making this site, and the restored Yule Log a reality.(A side note, and request: if anyone is recording this year's broadcast on TiVo or something similar, and will be able to transfer it digitally to a DVD for me, I would be eternally grateful, and would reimburse you for your time and postage. I only have VCRs, and my local source who recorded it last year on a disc for me is away on vacation, and haven't been able to contact him. Thanks!)Ed RazzleberryDressing

And as I speak, I'm preparing two things: Taping the newly restored Yule Log and the special that follows, and Christmas dinner.

BTW, Joe and Chip should do something new next year, "The Yule Blog".
