One way or another, change is in the air. There will be a couple of first babies arriving (one possibly already here). The Brexit countdown clock is ticking very loudly in the UK (and if you have the slightest interest in this and haven't already seen it, Google "Gollum Brexit" and enjoy the brilliance of Andy Serkis). Here at home, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (aka the Trump presidency) will hopefully see one or two car tires punctured as the Democrats take control of Congress in two days' time and start laying spike strips in the road. And it's going to be worth the price of admission to watch Nancy Pelosi take on Trump (his big, beautiful Wall, which he sometimes calls a fence, or maybe Artistic Steel Slats, is "maybe a beaded curtain" in her telling). Ouch!
Here's wishing everyone who reads this a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2019!
