And a very warm welcome to the two dozen new names on my mailing list. You did not ask for this and I hope you’ll hang around and view this first post of 2012, but if you check out the blog and find it NOT your cup of tea, please return the mail. [From mail sent to names on my mailing list.]
As we begin 2012, I want to thank all of my friends – old and new and even newer – who have made this a very wonderful year for me and my family for supporting me in this venture. While family is a constant in life whose members almost always stick with us no matter what, friends cannot ever be taken for granted – nor should they.
I thank all of you for taking this blog to the height it has reached which amazes me each time new country domains show up on search engines, including Belize just yesterday, New Year’s eve.
Readers in Canada, Nigeria, U.K., Switzerland, Uganda, Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, China, Taiwan, the daily readers from Malaysia and many other places well to the East of GMT, should pardon the posting that is just coming your way on beyond your January Firsts and even January 2. Though this has been ready since December 22, I’ve held on so that my dateline can show January 1, 2012.
The Girls, Vegas, December 2011.
Everybody, Vegas, December 2011.
Thankfully, the kids are smarter!
From my family to yours, here is wishing you all a very safe, happy and successful New Year.
TOLA ADENLE, Las Vegas, Nevada, December 2011.
