Welcome to 2008.

Happy New Year to you and yours. Here’s hoping this one will be a big improvement over the last one in so many ways. If nothing else it’s the last year of the Bush Administration and that’s reason enough alone to feel optimistic about it.

Personally I’d like to thank all of you folks who stop by here on a regular basis and help to make SEB the community that it is. I’ve learned so much from having you guys leave comments or drop me an email pointing me towards new knowledge and fun things to write about. You make the effort very worthwhile. I never thought I’d still be at this six years later and I’m still humbled by the breadth and depth of the folks who drop by everyday.

My family and I still aren’t quite back on our feet since that first layoff over two years ago now, but I have a good feeling about the new year and I think this time next year will find us in a much better place. Good or bad you can bet I’ll be here shooting my mouth off about it as the days pass.

  1. Happy New Year Les and everybody!  May you possibly remember and not regret tonight!

  2. Ugh, I can tell you 2008 not a good year as soon as it hit I could tell.
    Anyway hope you have a good one those still in 2007.

  3. Thanks Les, for all you do!  You are a force for good, but the secret is safe with me.  Oh wait…  shut eye  Doh!

    The codpiece-in-chief was on the cover of Parade magazine this Sunday, declaring that he is an optimist, so he would decline to discuss Iraq, or the housing crisis, or the California brushfires, and instead focus on what he felt made the year “special”.  But then he told an Afghanistan war story, exhorting Americans to live lives “worthy of the sacrifices that have been made for our freedom”.  I could not read the rest of the article.  And it should be specifically illegal for him to wear that corprophagic grin on his face.

    For this year I’d like to see Americans regain a sense of environmental consciousness, Democrats acquire a spine, and our country to get the hell out of Iraq.

  4. Wait: wasn’t the rapture supposed to happen in 2007?  Whatever went down with that?  ( http://www.2007rapture.com/ )

    I hope it really did happen… hangin with you sinners is more fun anyway.

    Happy New Year, SEB, and here’s to the future of your great site.
