Overall 2012 was the year when bad things happening to good people. There were some high spots, and friends who had good news, but overall it wasn't a great year. Here's hoping that 2013 will be better behaved.
I survived the Xmas visit to South Florida-- not my favorite spot on earth but good to see family. Came back, then one of my best friends arrived to spend New Year's. I quickly introduced him to my local routine-- daily visits to co-op grocery, bookstores, pub du jour. Spent New Year's eve with friends and surprised ourselves by actually staying up past midnight.
Today we're thinking lunch out (a pub, naturally), then perhaps a movie. And maybe a trip to the wine shop to make sure we're fortified for the evening.
Wishing you all a Happy 2013! Health, happiness, prosperity and robots for all.
