  1. Couldn’t view the clipboard advent. I’d really like to check it out, but it said you had to log in with a user and password. Can the tutorial viewed elsewhere?

  2. Thanks for the mention, Laurie! I’m glad you liked my joke tree. It’s actually a lot of fun to make cause you have to find (or make up) all these cheesy winter/holiday jokes.

    Your post also reminded me that it’s already time to get started on an advent calendar for this year! Yikes!
