2014 - A year when no blog post will carry a picture which relates to it in any way.
Well no matter what this next year brings, I will continue to post on matters of major importance, minor importance and absolutely no importance at all.
And, I shall endeavour to see to it that no picture relates to the text.
Furthermore, as you may have already noticed, I shall try to ignore all the basic rules of good grammatical writing.
For me, this will come as a welcome relief because it will mean that I need take no care over choosing the right word, phrase or even sentence.
I will try to write only what strikes me as of interest, not necessarily what I think will be of interest to others.
In this way, I can enjoy a sort of anarchy while still getting my 'message' out there.
Does this sound selfish? Well, it is.
Does this sound as though I have finally 'lost it'? Well it could be argued that I never had it in the first place.
Does it sound as if I have been drinking. Well, it does, but I haven't.
No I know it isn't April the 1st in an hour or so, it is merely the beginning of yet another January.
The bomb-like bangs and crashes of the (several) hours of fireworks out in the local area are driving me mad, so this is a sort of escape from the bombardment.
On a serious level, I hope and pray all of us, you and I will have a much better 2014 than we did 2013, and that a healthy happy new year will be ours (yours and mine)
Happy New Year.
