2006 comes to a nice warm end here in Boston, with record-breaking temperatures in December, which is fine by me though obviously many people who grew up with the idea of a white Christmas were not that happy. The year ended in joy, in happiness, with long-awaited goals reached, with big promotions, or with a touch or whallop of good-luck for some people... and not so well for others.

But here's hoping to a great year ahead for everyone for 2007...

APPY NEW YEAR and Good tidings to all the readers of this blog (if any!) for 2007!
