I want to wish you all a happy new year! I have experienced a fairly bad 2009, and know that I'm amongst very good company.
I wasn't on here much before and during Christmas as I had a firewall installed and it worked SO well that it blocked my wireless internet access. Thankfully that has now been cleared up!
So, Merry 8th Day of Christmas!! & Solemnity of Mary, and in the EF - the Feast of the Circumcision [perhaps the men are not fond of that one?].
