Happy New Year. I pray everyone's 2010 is full of blessings and prosperity. Sure need it after this year ...
And have something to look forward to in 2010. My first real stormchases! =]

... two thousand nine burst like
a melon ---- whoops, that was
OctoMom, birthing eight more.
New President! New hope for
change among the rising flood
of financial crisis, mistrust, loss
of homes, jobs ---- all w e got
was more worries and he gets a
Nobel peace prize while we're at
war. The enemy closing in on
every side, maybe even in your
own backyard. Fort Hood??
Guantanamo in Illinois?? And a
stealth government flies under
the radar, passing health care
reform the people don't want ----
t h e y exempted themselves from
the public option: will be a bitter
pill to swallow. And a boy in a
balloon supposedly flew above
it all. We lost stars we thought
would shine forever ---- Brittany,
Farrah, Ed, Patrick, MJ, Dom,
Walter, Paul Harvey just some
of the sad stories. Swine 'flu!
And viral videos. Some rose
above: Susan Boyle. Sully and
the Miracle on the Hudson ----
rest of the news too depressing
or stupid to think about. Was a
hard year for far too many, not
just here, but all over. All I got
to say: Man. Am I glad that's
over. This is a new start. Let's
not mess this one up as well ....

|KARLA - WELL PENNED DEAR FRIEND!
2010 is a year of many elections - if the American people have learned nothing else from the past - it should be this -
VOTE AGAINST EACH AND EVERY INCUMBENT - FOR EVERY OFFICE!
YOU WANT REAL 'CHANGE'? ELECT 'NEW BLOOD' INTO CONGRESS -
GET NEWER, LESS EXPERIENCED 'CROOKS'
IT WILL TAKE AWHILE, BEFORE THEY BECOME 'CORRUPTED'! MAYBE?
PEACE - TOM.

|Exceptionally unique arrangement here, but always the message is cutting and strong. I wish you the best this coming year and the strength to face whatever comes with the same spirit of courage you gave for the year that was.

In the "D.C" (Destruction Center), we might just have to bite the bitter bullet....
Love & peace be with you

|Great write in a nutshell Karla, Happy New Year
|Reviewed by Carol Grace
|Good way to capture the year--we need to turn our country around, bend our knees to the God upon which our nation was based, or I fear there will be more of the same. God's judgment is never intended to punish, but to turn us back toward Him. Maybe 2010 will be the year we learn. God bless you and keep on writing.|

|A REALLY GOOD WRITE KARLA...I REALLY DO BELIEVE THAT THE 'STORM' IS JUST ABOUT OVER...WE WERE REALLY IN A MESS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR WEREN'T WE?

|Yes, well said, Karla, let's hope this new year isn't as screwed up as the last. Of course we're still stuck with Obama for three more.|

|I think we need to make a plan and follow it through to make 2010 the best that we can. I realize there are certain things we have no say over, but most of the time when we think back are brought on by our own actions. I wish you the best in 2010 Karla.
Newfie hugs are on the way, Rose

|Great recap of a year that didn't do me too many favors (foreclosure of house, bankruptcy, lost car, health and deaths) but you know Karla when I look back, I see the smiling faces of my grandchildren and all the ones who love me and then feel my pulse and say yep...made it through another one...
