A blessed and happy New Year to all my friends and readers


2020 was an "annus horribilis" for most of us.  Here's hoping 2021 will be better - or at least more bearable.  That's debatable, looking at the divisions in our society today, but we can at least "hope against hope".

My earnest prayer is that we learn to talk to each other again, and this time to listen carefully rather than block out voices we don't want to hear.  The latter leads to chaos, anarchy and civil disorder.  We've had enough of that already, and unless the situation changes, we're in for a lot more of it in 2021.  Oh, well.  Here's hoping.

God bless you all.

There's a song that covers the current situation.

Notice the lyrics are perfect for the disconnect going on between the establishment and the people.

Happy New Year, Peter! My main wish for this new year is that your predictions prove to be wrong, and that justice and honesty will after all prevail in your adopted country. It's still worthwhile being prepared, though....
