Angel Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

This year has been very difficult for many of us including myself and the journey to recovery isnít easy.

There was a thread with someone complaining about the police in Melbourne, that was removed yesterday. I commented on it as I am becoming frustrated with the lack good news that isnít being reported by the media and people in general. Why does bad news and negativity attract peopleís attention more than good news?

Moving into the new year, letís all try and avoid getting bogged down with negativity and doom and gloom, and look out for one another and give credit when itís due. Not that Iím saying that most of us donít already do it, letís do it better!!!

Be good, happy and safe.

You reckon that's going to change anytime soon? People looooove disaster, chaos and destruction. If it's not disastrous enough, it'll be manufactured worse for you.

Have a good one, I know I will, knocked off for the year, beer in hand and re-reading Stick and Rudder by Wolfgang Langewiesche

Well thank you Duck Pilot. I wish you and all Pruners the same. Ever since I was a kid this has been my favourite time of year. Nothing has changed.

Merry Christmas everybody!

24 years as a PPRuNe user, how the years have flown. I joined PPRuNe as the 74th or 75th member.........

Why am I still here? Bah, Humbug!

Merry Christmas to all our Aussie PPRuNers and also those PPRuNers from the little islands to the east of the Great South Land.

And very best wishes for a vastly better 2021.

Anyone would think that the only industry in Oz is coffee shops.
Had some time with a friend in the boating industry last week. He is booked out until Sept 2021.
He was complaining that he cannot get staff.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all PPruNers

Anything boating related is going off right now. Boats, trailers, motors, fishing, tours, charters etc... crazy times for them! Mercury sales allegedly up 50% after the demise of Evinrude.

Merry Christmas to all out there, especially those doing it a little tough.
