Happy New Year – 2008


To everyone "out there" (on the world wide web), please have a safe and prosperous new year. 
To my special group of regular readers, hope additionally that you win the lotto and/or get three wishes (genie-style) in 2008.
 
More info.. Since we’re moving to Queensland ("the land so beautiful, it is named for royalty") we’re hoping it will rain in Brisbane so that I can continue to drink coffee (with Joel and Joseph).
 
What I got for Xmas (short version)
 
This year was a good mix of old and new.  A book of short poems by Walter Scott, second edition, published in 1813.. A replica telescope.. a new decanter from Reidel, a Wallabies jersey (team replica version), some golf equipment, a few books and a few other surprises, plus an accompayment of socks, vouchers, money and even a bag for the golf shoes!  Thanks to all who gave this Christmas.
 
What did you get?  Anything special, interesting or out of the oprdinary?
