It's hard to imagine but another year has passed. We are now about to enter the year 2012, and many of us will do so with a party or a celebration of some sort. We've been doing this since we were children. Hopefully, 2012 will be a better year than the last for you and I'd like to thank everyone for reading my blog throughout this year.
