I, for one, will not be too upset 2009 is behind me. It was perhaps the most difficult year I and my family have faced. It was much like the opening lines to A Tale of Two Cities - It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. We had moments of highs and lows, but the lows seemed to dominate the year.
Looking forward to 2010, there's some brightness on the near horizon. I hope you'll come along for the ride . . .
