Au revoir, 2005

As we approach 2006, it's interesting to look back at the blog archives and see over the various months during 2005.

2005 brought me:
* a lot of hiking, including a height record for us at over 7,000'
* First-ever time in snowshoes
* A new job (for me, and for Diann)
* A new Prius
* NASA going back to manned space flight, hitting a comet, and landing a probe on Titan
* Got to see the Principal Investigator for the Mars Lander missions speak
* A new niece
* An Xbox360

Here's to a prosperous 2006.

the new year is almost upon us

Just browsing CNN a few moments ago, and noticed that the NASDAQ is fittingly closing the year at 2003.37. Not quite 2004, but almost there. It's neat how some things just happen to work out.

Happy new year everyone, and don't blow yourselves up tonight with fireworks! 🙂
