We’re all wrapping up 2012 and want to wish you a happy holiday season.
This greeting is amidst troubling times in our nation especially considering the fiscal cliff has not been resolved. I’m guessing Congress pushes some sort of band aid patch in, but you never know.
Nonetheless we all have a lot to be thankful for. If you are reading this post it means you have internet access and are solidly in the “first world.”
Enjoy the holiday season, don’t spend too much, and refresh yourself to hit 2013 hard.
