    For me, 2008 was not a bad year. But it wasn't good year either. It was just kind of blah.

    Looking forward to 2009. Hopefully, it will be more exciting. But yeah, 2008 wasn't bad. Guess I can be thankful for that.

    2008 was a bad year,nobody wants to talk about it. 2009 will be worst,
    If it don't brother you It will get a family member or a friend. People
    don't want to talk about tough times. especially If you have to look good.
    My computer had a tough last year to,my post were bad too. Still in recovery with the guys. Ohm's law had a bad year to,110,220,ground and
    phase still suffering. The lock is trying to do better also, maybe some humor will help. No,everybody punching on humor too.The light bulb
    has taken a hit. Methane is on mars,the cow left the moon. London
    is being invaded by people who won't pay the car use fee.
    Good news London will have the Olympic's Game's in 2012

    We found that out in 2007 - the day before the July 7th London bombings.

    Something news worthy happen near you,was it a truck accident
    or some thing.Just sharing comments that I read,I am reminded about
    the good work that you do.A discovery channel story about ,Demolay
    the person.Just think about it,every thing we do is electronic. The
    next generation won't need a screw driver, name few products in a
    youth's room that would require a screwdriver. The cell phone,x-box
    laptop. I talking about the average teenager,not the youth you work
    with. Connectors stay perfect ,they out last the product. Think about
    all the perfect packages that come from box stores,that just need
    batteries. Think about the screwdriver the next time the box store
    offers an assortment for $ 3.98 that you can't turn down.

    Well, there have been high points and low points; unfortunately, a low point came at the end of the year -- my MIL is bedridden since Oct, and DW is 600 miles away, taking care of her. Then again, MIL is improving.

    Feels like i didn't use it to the full - so many things to have been done and yet left undone. Hope 2009 would be a more useful year. ;)

    Well having been made redundant from my job 2008, I would have to say 2008 was a bad year. So 2009 would just have to be better. Its looking up but its still early days. However Im learning new skills everyday it seems I mean take me joining this forum for instance to learn about electronics. I have also started to teach myself how to make long bows. So heres looking at you kid.
