Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. -- Carl Sandburg
There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut

Welcoming 2012

Sticks always make my dog happy.
Tomorrow begins a new year and marks my second full year of retirement.  I like to look forward in life and make the best of whatever I have.  The past is gone and memories serve as lessons.  So I expect 2012 will be another good year for me.

Merry Christmas, Solstice, Chanukkah, ...

To all.  Axial tilt - the reason for the season at the nadir of the year in the northern hemisphere.  When the dark of the year begins to get light again but not before the temperature lag gives us the winter to get thru.
