Celebrating a New Year

Wishing you all peace and joy as we enter the New Year. 

Blogging brings friends to our lives and for that I thank you. The support offered to Joe and me during the months when he was unwell was and is appreciated more than you can know. I am glad, nay honoured, to know you all through the blogging medium. 
So wherever you are
