time of the year once again! I've
closed the judge's voting in the Poppies (thanks to all the judges!),
and I've also closed the reader's voting in the People's Picks (thanks
for voting!), so now I'm free and clear to post my choices for best of
the year, as well as my picks for worsts.
going to stick to the same
categories that were used for the Poppies and People's Picks. That will
give me some consistency with those results, and I'll continue to do
that in future years. I'm also sticking with my "Gold, Silver, Bronze"
layout, all the more appropriate with the Winter Olympics right around
corner. I might slip in a few products that weren't actually nominated
on the official ballot, but I'm calling perogative on that one.
