At least, 2021 doesn't have a very high bar to clear, eh.

So long as it's not a generational bad year, it will be an improvement!

That's right, Jean!

I think it won't get better on its own, though. We are probably going to have to set some limits on our governments this year.

I always have mixed feelings about a new year. It brings hope but also another year older and not much improves with age. :( Covid made 2020 a boring and aggravating year but death in the family will be my lasting remembrance. Anyway, Happy New Year!

I am sorry to hear that, FM. I lost my mom in 2016, and I will never think of that year as anything but horrible, for that reason.

Hoping your 2021 is kinder.

Happy New Year to all. As Jean pointed out the bar is set pretty low after the bastard child turd 2020.

I have a new motorcycle waiting for spring and my 44th year of riding. I'm pulling my hair out from boredom (and places can't be open to cut hair so just as well). People will be asking soon if I was with the Stones at Altamont or toured with Led Zeppelin. I've seen EVERY episode of Forensic Files and The First 48 at least 3 times. Only football is saving me. Baseball and motorcycling to the mountains (the ultimate social distancing device) will be paradise and the days are getting longer.

The Chinook winds off the Rockies continue and we had another sunny melting day today. I'm still wearing shorts and sandals walking to the market in January in God's magnificent Alberta. God bless the media created "OMFG save us climate crisis fake news BS".

Happy New Year, Duane!

Start pressuring your government to loosen your restrictions, so you will able to get on that bike in the Spring! :-)

Mercifully Better New 2021/1984 pars 2

Being in Alberta, but unlike Duanne, I wait not as patiently as I would like, for the forecast Polar Vortex and above seasonal snow to arrive. I loathe warm weather this time of year. Problem is, if the vortex does show up, it will likely extend far into spring. Then there shall be wailing and brushing of teeth ;@) I am counting on a white and colder Easter than what was a pathetic Christmas here weather-wise.

I want to hit the Rockies in April no matter what the weather. All for removal of all travel restrictions for everyone except politicians. They will be rounded up and sent to Uncle Ursus's Reeducation and Ass Thwacking Camp. :D

I cut my own hair with a home barber kit so I retain that suave polar bear cool look. ;)

But what I really want are surgery dates. My health is worse than ever. :|

I hope you get your surgery, Ursus. This has been such a terrible time for people with non-COVID medical problems!

Praying for you!
