Happy New Year!

Filed under: Uncategorized — cpirrong @ 3:07 pm

Happy New Year to all my loyal readers–and even to you traitors who read!

A few days from now will mark the 18th anniversary of this blog. That may make me seem old, but of course I started it as a small child.

Apologies for the sparse posting lately. Have been absorbed in work, and in a sojourn at my new medieval house. Well, new to me anyways: a medieval house can’t be new, can it?

The view from the front door:

Whence I will retreat during the zombie apocalypse. Or the 2024 election, which may be more or less the same thing.

I wish everybody a joyous and peaceful 2024. That didn’t work out so well in 2023, but let’s be optimistic.

  1. Re: optimistic prognosis for 2024, I’ll refer to another blogger from my roll.
    But “wishing” is not “hoping”, and so I do wish you and [some of] of my fellow commenters a very Happy New Year!

  2. France?

    The year started with a diagnosis on heart valve regurgitation, surgery, miserable month of recovery, ended by finishing cardio rehab. Not a recommended year. But, I’m still covering ground, ground’s not covering me.

    Et oui.

  7. @dearieme–Oliver’s Army, to quote Elvis Costello. My neighboring castle changed hands repeatedly in the 100 Years War but was not knocked around until the French Revolution, when the chateau inside was burned.
