    Hello to all. I don’t really have any news this week. Just thinking over the year gone by. This year has gone by fast in a lot of ways but then some days slow as Christmas. Yes, I know that is the season we are in now. There are so many things that run through my head.

    Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year to all. It doesn’t seem possible that by the time you read my next newsletter, Christmas will already have come and gone. With the year 2014 staring us in the face. Certainly hope it will be a good and prosperous year for everyone.
