A Year in Review

by G.Parker

Well, it's the end of December and the new year is only a couple of days away.  I find this time of year kind of interesting, and I watch the days like they're going around a corner.  What's on the other side?  It's unknown, it's a little scary, but it's also more of the same.

I thought first I would contemplate much of what we covered over this past year.  We added some new writers, we had a couple of contests (No, I haven't forgotten you, winners of my contest, I'm just lame at getting things out) and there was much advise given.  In reviewing my articles in comparison with the rest of our group, I think that my writing has tended toward the philosophical point of view, and what's going on in my life.  Not necessarily something that helps with writing.  I guess I should apologize for that -- it's not what you are reading our blog for.

But perhaps the few that read my posts are.  I mean, who knows?  I sure don't.  We don't get a whole lot of feedback on this blog, so what we do get we cherish.  We salute all of you who have made comments over the past year, and know that at least some of you are appreciative of our efforts.

Now that we are coming to a close on 2012 and looking toward 2013, I hope you're not superstitious.  Some might think that the year 2013 would be unlucky, like Friday the 13th, or 13 people at the table, etc.  I have no such fears.  I think 2013 is going to be awesome.  You see, I never thought the world would last this long in the first place...so much like the turtle in Over the Hedge, I think things are going great.  "...I thought we'd be dead by step 2."

I would suggest that you start planning what you want to have happen in the coming year.  What kind of things are you hoping to achieve?  What goals would you set?  I don't believe in resolutions, and I've written blogs on that, so I won't cover it this year.  I do think as a personality, the human mind needs goals to force them onward, so that is something we should all be focusing on.

I figure 2013 is the year I'm going to get published.  Either in ebook form, or physical, or perhaps both.  I promised my hubby, so I try to keep my promises.

What are you going to do?  We'd love to hear about it.

I would toast you all if we were together on Tuesday evening, so picture that in your mind and enjoy.  See you next year!

Many of the older properties in London and even some of the newer ones are prone to drainage problems. With everything from root growing into pipes, your own home waste blocking the pipe, to leaves and gravel being washed into the storm drains, there are a million and one things that can cause pipes inside and outside your home to be blocked.
