Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night…

I personally wanted to say thank you to all who have blogged here this year.  I hope you have a fine holiday and hope you can be around family and friends during this holiday weather.  When traveling, please be careful out there.

This has been a growth-inducing year for me, and I have appreciated your friendship and talents that are on display here every day.  In regard to our blogging, I think I can say for us collectively, we have grown and we have endured.  Couldn’t have done it without all of you wonderful people.

I have appreciated you all, but I’d be remiss to not give a special thanks to Fnord for her tireless work.  In three short months this humble little blog (that is of such great interest to some people [sic]) will turn one year old.  Not in a bad way, but it seems like it has been longer than that to me.  I’m not sure why…

Any way… Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of sugar plums danced in their heads.
And Mama in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap. Continue reading
