Happy New Year Everyone

We are fortunate that we will be starting 2009 with a new administration headed by the most intelligent and charismatic president since JFK. I have high hopes for the coming year in spite of the gloomy forecasts.

  • My wish for the world is peace and the end to turmoil.

  • My wish for my family is good fortune and health.

  • My wish for my friends is a year of happy times and shared pleasures.

  • My wish for all of you is happiness, peace, good health and joy.

May all good things come your way.

I hope your are feeling stronger each day.
