Do I believe this for a drop dead second ? Hell no .  My creditors would have my balls for garter belts if they thought I was going to default on my Jeep before the end of days.

And really why would any of us think that the world is going to stop in a year hence. Have the Huns invaded anything lately?  NO.  Is Korea going to implode … Ok I’ll give you a maybe on that one.

But generally planet earth is doing right effin ok.

Yes we are a bit warmer, but is it a cycle, or is it man screwing with stuff? We still don’t know.  The earth does its’ funny bits and we humans tend to do stuff too.

Anyhow, I think we will make it till 2012.  Here is me wishing you the best and the brightest in the grand New Year.

Much love, Bob
