It is that month of the year, where I
need to make sure I am somewhat “DC” - (December Correct) for all of
our Classmates. Now with that being said and I hope I don’t forget
any Holiday Celebrations: Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Feliz
Navidad, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Dun Che Lao Ren and Festivus for the
rest of us. I want to wish you all the very best, during your
respective holiday periods... be safe, enjoy your holiday time with
family and friends.
Just a reminder, so that everyone can
enjoy the Holiday Seasons. Bonita and I are going to keep the
December, January and February Newsletters short. Shorter in
quantity, but will continue to match the high level of quality we try
to attain each and every month.
Finally, a short note of explanation
about the last five months of “Political Information.” I must admit,
it was a very interesting reading and study period for me. Each and
every one of the respective five months was an eye opener. I truly
hope, all Classmates who contributed political knowledge were able to
make an intelligent selection at the voting booth... thank you,
a great five months!
Our Thoughts and Prayers are with
all of you that have gone, (and are going through), the fires that
have plagued California from the north to the south. BE SAFE.
