"An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves."
 — William E. Vaughan
 
 
Hello and Happy (early) New Year!
 
I truly hope that you have had a nice holiday season. There is no doubt that 2020 has been a trying year for each of us. It is my hope that the coming year will be filled with joy instead of sorrow and exploration rather than quarantine. We are more deserving than ever of a happy and prosperous new year!
 
Since my last message on Cristmas Eve, I have only published a few new articles, but wanted to share them with you before the ball drops tomorrow night.
 
Keep an eye out for the next newsletter, which will arrive about two weeks from now. Inside, you'll find details about the first of many contests/giveaways for 2021. You won't want to miss it!
 

Best wishes for good health and happiness,
— John Morris
