Happy New Year!

Well, it's the first day of the new year: 1/1/11.

I began the day by running some much-needed computer utilities.  I downloaded a firmware update for my operating system (Mac OS-X, version 10.4.11), ran an optimizing application on my hard drive, and deleted some unused files.  My Mac should be really happy now.  It's like having a clean slate to start working on this year.

The old year left without much ado (fuss, trouble, bother).  I briefly heard some fireworks going off in my neighborhood at midnight, but I was already snuggled in bed with my cat, Leo.

To all of my friends and family, I wish them prosperity and best wishes.
