Im very happy to report that my good friend John Bannon married the delightful Christina in a simple New Years Eve ceremony. (For those of you who know John, no, this is not a Mirage, an Impossibilia, or Smoke and Mirrors it really happened!) This made our toasts last night doubly meaningful, and now makes it easier for John to remember his anniversary forever.
For those of you wondering about the progress of Johns new book, I can safely say one major distraction is now behind him. One of Johns New Years resolutions is to return his attention to his writing, and having edited the first draft several months ago, I know the material will be worth waiting for.
Ginny and I wish John and Christina all the best for many happy anniversaries, and we wish all of you a Happy New Year.
