|Happy December and Merry Christmas!
We hope everyone had a wonderful and safe
Thanksgiving, in spite of this crazy time!
Christmas this year will be unlike any most of us
have ever experienced, with lots of on-line shopping,
not much travel and sticking tight with our loved ones who
are close at hand. This is our sixteenth Christmas
at GraniteCityGossip.com, and this year, like all
prior years, we want to thank our wonderful advertisers,
our many regular visitors and our Discussion Board
members, for making this website such a success for
such a long period of time. Sixteen years -- not many
personal websites make it this long, and we appreciate
it so very much. We will be taking a little R & R, and will
return mid-January with the next update. Stay safe, stay
Christmas and we will see you after the New Year!
|Watch for our reopening!
