Well, we have made it through another year.

2018 was like all of its predecessors.  Some good things happened.  Some awful things.  A lot in the middle.

I have to say there was plenty of disappointment in the run up to the new year.  Scranton and Wilkes-Barre were dark.  Those cities are too big not to mark the start of a new year.  Nothing happening in Sunbury.  Not enough volunteers.  It seems to be the trend.  Thank heaven for Williamsport, Pottsville and Shamokin.

I know you don't need to drop something and set off fireworks to start a new year, but it would be nice.  I had an unexpectedly great time at the start of 2018 in Pottsville and it's unfortunate that so many communities lack celebrations.

This blog is now in its 15th year.  Thank you for being along for the ride.

2019 is here.  Let's hope it's a good one, without any fears.
