I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers - Loyal and loyal, family and friends, sisters and sisters, commenters and lurkers, those of you I know in "real life" and those who are virtual acquaintances, obsessed readers and occasional readers, Israeli readers, American readers, and Hungarian readers ("Como esta?"), readers who laugh at the blog and those who shake their heads (and I apologize to all those whom I've offended through my occasional blasphemy and constant snark), readers who blog and readers who read, readers who have received their promised aliyahbyaccident gifts and readers who are still waiting (alright, I admit, that second group is slightly larger than the first....)
So to all of you, I wish a year of happiness and health (no diseased sticks! or at least fewer!), a year of success in school, work, and house-hunting, a year of stumbling upon heretofore undiscovered large wads of cash, a year of reaching great new heights in parenting those cute short people that live with us (or at least one whole day without anyone calling anyone else "stupid"), a year of not confusing "her" and "you (feminine)", a year where the good guys win and the bad guys lose and no one blames the good guys for winning, and a year with all manner of good and wonderful things, and the chance to appreciate it.
