I am not a fatalistic person nor very religious Yet as the time rolls around it is another New Year for my people.
I have been involved in some eath shattering events and many smaller ones to know the margin between life or death is often not that great. Yet everyday we live is a blessing and each day brings new hopes and challenges. I am glad that over the past year I have made many new friends over this blog . I am greatful each and every day for the kind words and intellectual debate. Warren , Jaason and Mr Beamish were there in the early days. Always on the Watch , Farmer John , Esther , Big Bubba are always good friends. People do not realize it but I respect and admire B for his passion. I can never figure out the mercurial Justin Morris but he is still a friend.
Contrary to popular belief I do not hate the Duck. Like his avatar he is proof of what alcohol and drugs can do to a mind . I also want to wish those non readers a happy Jooooooish new year . We know you still read this blog because you can't help yourselves. This blog is amazingly often quoted and highlighted by people who swear they do not read it.
Lastly I am lucky to serve my country in a cause I believe in. My coworkers with one exception are fine human beings and a credit to our service. I do not serve for pay I serve because I love my country and all the fine people in it with some obvious exceptions. Johny Jihad I will never rest until you are in a box. Comrade Karl you deserve banishment and my fight with you will last until the end of my days. However to the rest of you and people that love freedom everywhere Happy Rosh Hashana (New Year).
