Happy New Year PBF!

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. Youre doing things youve never done before, and more importantly, youre Doing Something. Neil Gaiman

2015 was a tough year,
I saw a lot of mistakes being made and tried to help minimize them, to no avail. I made several myself, thankfully, the consequences were lite. I lost three very good friend including George. I almost lost three family members to a high energy accident (thank you pocket protector wearing people). I watched smart people give up and now I am watching them come to realize their mistakes and its consequences.

In short, 2015 was one of the toughest years I have had in a long time.

So to look back and say there was pain and heartache would be a bit of an understatement. I do realize there are people who were handed far tougher cards to play, that is not my point here, just that the cards I was dealt in 2015 were were some of the toughest I have had. In fact, the last three years have been the toughest ones in my life.

So would I have missed them;

Not one chance, I will not miss the dance. I do hope and pray that 2016 offers me a little relief, I hope I have earned a little happier music to dance to.

So here is to 2016, you are a clean slate and I hope to paint you with happy successful colors!!!! Or go down trying.....

Hold your head up guys, 2016 may be a new year for a business man to run things, instead of a community organizer. Can't be any worse. Happy New Year to all. One more thing, 2015, I owe many thanks to people here, From the experienced forum advisers and moderators to Overtons fishery and to the new friends I met at the PBC.

Great quote, Bill D!

Brian, sorry to hear of your past few years being tough ones, but I would guess what helped you through that is the thoughts, words and deeds of others, just as you have helped others in the same way, even unknowingly.

May 2016 be the fresh slate you speak of, for you and everyone else!



Pay it forward in 2016

2016 could be a bit bumpy over here, but I'm kinda prepared.
