Christmas is over, finished, done with. Can you see me smiling? I love Christmas. We had a wonderful time this year, but I’m very glad that the work is over!
As the New Year preparations begin we here at Peachy Green have found ourselves swamped. We aren’t bogged down with work, but with an overwhelming need to slow down just a little and spend some time with our families and friends.
So, we have to decided to put together a series of posts highlighting some of our most interesting topics of the year. Please have a look and read some of these long lost posts that you may have missed in the hoopla of daily living. Common, I’m not the only one with hoopla in my life , am I?
We’re starting out with posts about new hope and new technology, because it has been a theme for me this year. The hope part anyway. And I suspect that I am not alone.
There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something better tomorrow.
