Never in the past would I be sitting on the couch on my computer on New Year's Eve. I was just painfully reminded of that by a text from one of my best friends. We have probably spent the last 30 New Year's Eves together with our spouses and friends. Not this year. It has certainly been a challenge for the entire world. My deepest sympathies to all of those that have lost loved ones to COVID, or to anything else for that matter. I am very thankful that my family is healthy, my sister had it, but is fine now. I just got some really good news about a potentially serious health issue myself, so I am ending this year on a happy note and looking forward to the new year. Wishing you all the best in the coming year. And happy trees! (Channeling Bob Ross).
