Happy New Year all who pass by. As I type this, it's only 8 hours before the fireworks start in Australia.
The Sydney Harbour celebrations just get better every year!

It is sad to hear the roll call of New Year's celebrations being cancelled because of terror threats. Hmm. Peace on Earth is slow coming.
And in the face of the natural and man-made disasters happening around the world (not least the roaring bush fires and heatwaves in Australia, floods and tornadoes in the US, floods in the UK and Uruguay), fireworks may seem a trivial act and a waste of money, but there is something inherently human about fireworks as a symbol of hope in this battered and burning world.
Looking forward to interacting with you in 2016! See you on Wednesday 6th January for IWSG! Whoa, the day the winner of the Anthology contest is announced. Will be a big day!
