It seems like just yesterday that we were all sweating the moment when the clock rolled over from 11:59:59 to begin the year 2000. Would things keep on keeping on? Or would the world begin a slow meltdown or maybe a quick, fast crash and burn? Did any of you have food and water stockpiled? An alternative form of heat for your homes? Extra gasoline for the cars? Cash stashed away in case all the ATM machines and banking software went kaflooey?
The world didn't come crashing down and we thought things would go on as normal, but a lot's happened since January 1st, 2000. We've seen changes we could only imagine in our wildest dreams, and we've seen things that could only happen in our worst nightmares. But we keep on keeping on and try to do our parts to make the world a better place.
I know we all toasted on New Year's Eve, but I'd like to offer one more toast that I believe y'all might enjoy.
Have a happy and prosperous

P.S. Remember when I blogged about baby Charlie last summer? He's six months old now and absolutely adorable.
