On the cusp of a new year (2019)...

On the cusp of a new year, I just wanted to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year.

While we all toil and sometimes struggle at work, at home, with health, itís always about the people that you care about most. Cherish them, cherish the memories. Take pics, save them, back them up. Theyíre precious. They are remembrances when you canít always remember every single detail.

Itís the people in your life that make your life better. Without them, what would be the point.

If you had a bad year, hereís hoping the next is better. They canít always be winners. All we can do is work to improve and make the most out of the tools given to us.

We have our highs, our lows, but we pick ourselves up, sometimes brush it off easy and go on.

Life is what you make of it. Make it yours and make it the best you can with what you possess inside.

Anyway, hereís to a great/better/best new year you can make it. Keep your friends and family close, be healthy: mentally and physically, and just know when to relax, enjoy and make the best of what you can with everything you do.

Hope it is a Happy one, but 2019 looks like it will be fraught with financial crisis and housing market drop. To say nothing of the political crisis ongoing.

I know what I'll be doing in 2019 -- save, save, save. And spending as little as possible.

Wow, forgot about that! Hard to believe we've reached Blade Runner Year.

I think Scott and company got it about 50% right. His Los Angeles is pretty accurate, as it's now a mishmash of Mex / Oriental / Black and very little anglo or Proper English speakers left. Give it another 20 years. We're on the cusp of all being able to have our own Rachael. And who knows when we'll have Deckards (replicants) after us???

Here's to great food, travel and awesome movies and TV shows in 2019.

I know I have a lot of big travel plans in 2019. And looking forward to Avengers: Endgame.

I am most looking forward to seeing if JJ Abrams can salvage Star Wars after the shitty The Last Jedi with Episode 9. I have no life and little to live for.

UPS was supposed to deliver a package by 8:00 PM. They didn't. Looks like I'll have to wait a whole year for it.
