Good idea on this thread, JamesC, you got my cooperation.
First, thanks to Peter, for his amazing contribution of HW, and allowing us the freedom and latitude we do have.
Thanks to our moderators, that despite the occasional outbursts, mini-feuds, etc, manage to balance it all out
Thanks to each of my brothers and our sister contributers here, its not important that we agree 100% with each other 100%of the time, the important thing is that we are all in the same war against PC, which is truly a monster, we fight different battles on different days.
I respect each person's journey, for their struggles and difficulties, none of it is easy.
I wish each and everyone of you, the best of the Holidays in the days ahead. I won't lie, 2010 was rough year for me, but its ending on a more positive and much less painful way then where I was last year at this time.
I end with part of a stanza of a Christmas period song I have always loved..."Let there be Peace on earth, and let it begin with me"
