Howdy folks, and a very happy new year to you all!

I hope that, like me, you managed to avoid the worst of the silly season by doing the mall-dodging thang and by having an unhyped (and therefore less stressful) Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

I’ve just come back from a wonderfully relaxing break up on the West Coast – the kind of holiday where you do nothing but read, swim, sleep and eat.

No checking of email, no cellphone reception, no television. No stress.

It was awesome, and I hope that you all have had similarly restful and regenerating holidays – or plan to do so soon.

Here’s to a happy, fruitful 2009!
