The new year brings out the deep superstitions in the average person. It's a time for renewal, new vows, new ambitions and fulfilments. To some it can be an achievement as monumental as a life change (giving up smoking?)
But with it comes a lot of hope.
For others it can start off a superstitious belief that it has brought a whole series of bad luck.
But what ever 2009 represents to you, the visitor to this place of hope and ambition, I wish you the best of this coming year.
