HAPPY NEW YEAR

Wow! What a strange and eventful decade it has been! Did anyone else in Australia watch the channel 9 (win or prime) television program which looked back on the past 10 years? I cried when I realized what a dramatic time it's been (Sep 11, Bali and Britain's bombings, the Boxing Day tsunami, the Chinese earthquakes, Hurricane Katrina, a black USA president, flooding, cyclones, Steve Irwin's death and our terrible Black Saturday bush fires).
We never would have guessed in celebrating the year 2000 all those years ago that so many bad, mad and wonderful things were going to happen.Here's to a safer, brighter and hopefully not nearly as quick twentyten!
