Snowstorm dropped another 7 inches on us today. At least it was the light fluffy stuff that you can move easily enough. I usually stay in for New Years; it is both cheaper drink wise and safer road travel wise.
Looking Back on 2008
New Years Eve is all about reflection and then hope for the new year. 2008 was filled with drama (both economic and personal) and excitement (again both economic and personal). I have marvelled at how fast things came unglued after the August Bear Stearns debacle. I have been equally amazed at pundits that assured things were just great now come out and say the same thing. Fortunately for them public memory is either short lived or non existent so they can keep their jobs.
This blog had a busy year with 197 posts (WOW! That many?). I am thankful for the wonderful readers that take a minute to check out my small piece of the web (Kevin, G, Watchtower, Lisa and others) and add comments and discussion. I was happy to be added to the Seeking Alpha watch list, I guess my stuff cannot be totally bad!
I will have a bit more forward looking posts up over the next couple of weeks as we move into 2009. This evening I want to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and safe 2009. I will be covering in real time what promises to be one of the more interesting years in modern history on almost any level you want to look at (politically, economics, social issues). Raise a glass and give a toast for 2009!
Have a good night.
