I'd just like to wish all those of you who happen to pass through my blog a happy, healthy and peaceful 2005.
I will be seeing the New Year in with my wife and her family, with good food and hopefully a drop or two of wine.
2004 has been a wonderful year for me; I have got married and become a homeowner, nothing particularly bad has happened to me or my loved ones, things have been relatively quiet in Israel on the security front and economic growth has exceeded expectations.
2004 has ended on a sour note with the terrible tragedy in South East Asia and East Africa. Whilst I struggle to comprehend the scale of the disaster, I am thankful that for whatever reason, it didn't touch me or my loved ones directly. Please G-d the clean up effort should be swift, appropriate aid and assistance be available to the victims, the process of mourning begun and that we should not no from further troubles of this kind.
