New Year’s Greetings

It’s that time of year when every news source worth its weight in cameras is broadcasting a retrospective on 2015. Save yourself some time and just read Dave Barry’s take on it. If you missed my sharing it on Twitter and Facebook, the link appears at the bottom of this post.

It’s also that time of year when people make resolutions. Lose weight, stop smoking, clean out the garage. I won’t say save yourself some time and just realize you won’t follow through, because this just may be the year you do. (While you’re at it, can you clean out my garage, too?)

You may have big plans or small or none at all for New Year’s Eve. Whatever the case, I hope you have a safe and happy night, and  wish you a healthy and blessed 2016. And when the clock strikes midnight and champagne flutes clink and everyone sings “Auld Lang Syne,” remember that none of us know what it means either.

Cheers, and see you next year.
