Happy New Year

And so we way buh-bye to the Uh-Oh Decade, AKA the "'00ps, I Did It Again!" Decade! It's been a decade of major mistakes and preventable tragedies. That includes 9/11 and the economic meltdown. As a result of truly bipartisan policy folly, many Americans died, lost their jobs, fortunes and homes -- for reasons not altogether of their own doing.

That said, none of us are innocent or faultless. Perhaps that just describes the human condition.

The end of the year is always a good time to take stock at ourselves. Take note of the good and bad in our lives -- the successes, the failures, the "mehs." In a broader and more spiritual sense, we ponder where we may have fallen from the mark and see how we can continue to improve ourselves.

In the past year, I was blessed to have a brand new niece enter the world. Spending time with Milan Chrisette this past Christmas was one of the most enjoyable moments I've had in a while.

Like many of you, I've made some New Year's Resolutions. And, no, I'm not sharing them all here (though, I think, for the second or third year in a row, I'm promising a major site redesign. At long last, this time it shall occur)!

In any event, thank you, dear readers of Ragged Thots, whether long-timers or just occasional visitors. However much of your valuable time you manage to give to this little part of the internets, it is truly appreciated!!

In 2010, may we learn from our old mistakes so we can endeavor to make new and original ones!

Happy New Year to all!
