On the cusp of 2007, with wishes for happiness and prosperity conveyed to the appropriate persons, with many personal changes lurking in the haze of the near term, and with the optimism that comes from looking ahead rather than behind, herewith a link to one of your scribe’s favorite bloggers, The Futurist, who writes in his last post of 2006:

when a single calendar year will invariably yield multiple
