HBO’s Best of the Local Blogs — 12/19/07

No, this isn’t the camel that the wise men rode during the original Christmas, but the delightful young lady in the picture will appear in Your Post Falls Voice a week from tomorrow, Dec. 27, promises Sweet & Sour Herb.

*Hauser Thoughts tells us a real-life Christmas miracle and a real-life love story re: her uncle, 88, and her aunt, 85, here.

*At The Skinny On North Idaho, Ralph Bartholdt of the St. Maries Gazette-Record treks in from Benewah County to discover there’s little left of the Rathdrum Prairie here.

*’Twas One Week Before Christmas and Silver Valley Girl decided to try her hand at the famous old rhyme, Kellogg style, here.

*Mrs. Mac Energetic has had her panties in a bind twice this Christmas season as a result of poor cuss-tomer service here.

*After tons of tests and attempts at cures, Slight Detour’s doctors concluded correctly that “some people get migraines, some get hives, and some trot a lot when stress gets too intense” here.

*Sparky’s Notes flashes back to 1984 when the song, “They’ll Know It’s Christmas,” was a hit on two continents — and she was forced to perform it 35 times, not including practices — here.
