Tracking Santa

This has been a tradition in our house for the past 4 years — but each Christmas eve, the boys and I use NORAD to “track” Santa.  It’s a neat, fun little thing that NORAD does that the kids really enjoy.  If you’ve never seen it, check it out: http://www.noradsanta.org/en/home.html

LibraryFind 0.9: SOAP and REST APIs
