Last year was an odd one. As with any year, both good and bad things happen but none to the timing seemed right to me. By the end of the year, I was so out of sorts that I am happy to bid 2018 farewell. Of course, I may be pining for the “good old” days if 2019 turns sinistar. For the moment, however, I am filled with optimism and I wish you all a truly happy new year.
