Dates . . . and time

Here on Saipan, it is now 11:30 a.m. New Year's Day, January 1, 2009. I posted "A whole year ... !" a little over two hours ago. So it wasn't really posted on New Year's Eve even though it looks that way.

Thanks to time zones on the fact that the Google server that hosts this blog apparently is located on the West Coast of the U.S. -- PDT (Pacific Daylight Time), I guess a blogger really can have his cake and eat it too. End the year and open it too with a single post ....

Have a great year everybody!

A whole year . . . !

Gosh, my last post in this blog was nine months ago, and the one before it all the back to last January! I need to do something about that.

Happy New Year everybody! Welcome to 2009.

In December, it seemed as if New Year's Day 2008 had been just a couple of months back. To me, 2008 seemed like the shortest year on record -- but nothing to cheer about.

So 2008 wasn't a very good year. Now that we have said goodbye to 2008, we can look forward to a great year in 2009. Let's make it so!
