Happy New Year!!!
We went down to the canal to see the fireworks at midnight. I expected a bigger crowd but the people who showed up got a good show. It was a 10 minute fireworks show and really impressive.
I hope 2010 is a better year than 2009. Last year wasn't all bad. There was the trip to New York in February and the trip to Florida including M & Rs wedding in September/October.
But there were some really sad diagnoses in the extended family. I presided at the funeral of a soldier killed in Afghanistan. I wish the damned war would end. Just the day before yesterday four more Canadian soldiers and a newspaper reporter were killed. I'm sick of it.
I've got a good life and a great family, there's just a lot of crap going on in the world. Here's hoping 2010 will have more good news. God bless us, everyone.
