New Year News and Sh*t

And suddenly we are in the teens with 2013.  Most of us can remember reaching the teenage years if only because generally by this age sex is rearing its sometimes ugly (and sometimes pretty) head.

The other part of the new year was far less welcome, an old friend of 35 years standing passed away after a short illness, he was two weeks younger than me.  In an era when one can hope to live to 80+ so long as you do not over abuse your body or get hit by one of life's still fatal illnesses to die as my friend did in his early 50s seems somehow unfair, it is always the good guys who go first.  I now know four people who have died, all roughly my age.  A depressing thought.
