Aloha one and all, and welcome to 2013!
A couple of thoughts:
-- I can't wait for the NFL playoffs, but I am already saddened that we will be without the NFL, soon.
-- If I hear the phrase "Fiscal Cliff" one more time, I think I'll be sick. This was an exercise of pure self-preservation and self-promotion. Yes, the democrats are more successful than the GOP in negotiating and owning message, but is their agenda truly in their best interest or the nation's?
-- Who really thought that when Sen. Inouye passed that Brian Schatz would be the one? Oh, c'mon...If so, I bet you took Seattle to make it to the Super Bowl, too.
-- We went camping on the North Shore for our vacation this year. It was glorious to be disconnected from phone, iPad, iPhone, etc.... We LOVED it!
-- We have a new mayor, several new councilmembers, new senators and a new congresswoman. Does it really make a difference to what we've already come to know?
-- I have to admit...I like the fireworks situation on NYE. Before, it was a battle zone. Now, it's sane. I like to pop some fireworks, but it was getting out of hand.
-- Hate to say it, but Notre Dame is going down to Alabama. Sorry, Manti.
