I'd like to wish everyone a successful New Year and best of the
holidays. if by any chance I might have irritated some folks during
this year. My apologies, if I might have taught some folks something
interesting, well that makes up for my errors, right?.:>) In this
life, "You can't please everyone all the time, it's best to please
some of them, some of the time"! I think P. T. Barnum said it better.
As I am nearing my appointment with my surgeon to operate on my
spinal cord. again. I still have essays to write for my "Gerry's
Blog". I now have silver patterns to write about and photograph,
during my 2 months of convalescence. So this PC is not going to sit
idle, till then!
I finished my course, and am now officially jeweller, I still have
to wait for the actual piece of paper.
Thank you for your support over the last year, I don't think I could
have done as well without it.
I'd like to wish you all "Seasons Greetings".
Kindest regards Charles A.
Congratulations and best wishes Charles now that you have finished
your jewelry course. Alma

guide the hands of your surgeons that day. Barbara on a cold, dark

Now that it's all over, merry whatever
May this New Year be pain free for you, as well as all the
Orchidians who have experienced physical and/or emotional pain. This
has been an extremely traumatic year for far too many. Let us,
worldwide try to understand one another, accept one another, respect
one another, and reach out in friendship and caring.
I wish all a Very Happy New Year, whether yours began sometime ago,
or January 1 2013, or later.
