Let's take a quick little break from storage bins and shelf units to discuss something I find very interesting.  We all know that Google is the #1 website in the world and most people use it for everything. People use it to look up information on people, products, places and anything you can think of.  In December, Google usually releases lists of the most searched terms and terms that were trending the most for the year.  I always love this list so I thought I'd share this years results with you all...
