Happy New Year to One and All


As 2011 comes to a close, I know that it hasn’t been a good year to many out there, but as we enter 2012 things are beginning to look up; The stock market is up, unemployment is on the way down, the housing and real estate markets have started to turn in the positive direction and the long war in Iraq has come to an end. It seems that we are on the right track for a great new year (that is of course if the world doesn’t on before the 2012 is over).

For all of those that have touched my life this year and in years past; family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances and readers of this blog, I want you to know that I am extremely fortunate to have been touched by each of you.
Remember, it’s the people that we know and love that make a difference in the fabric of our lives, not the material itself.
Have a happy, safe and prosperous New Year everyone!
