- Colleagues who have encouraged me as I searched for my next position.
- My friends who have stood by me
- A most hounderrific fellow
- A respite, until the 2012 campaign begins (January?), from political ads
- Kids, still in school, who continue to build stronger foundations for their future
- My wife, who made yet another great holiday repast
- Snow! And still having time for some fun
- Good health and good spirits to face the future
- Less than a month until the days start getting longer...
Thanks too to my readers; I love to hear from you!
