I, for one, am glad to see 2008 go away. There were many memorable, historic, and very personal moments. The collapse of the economy dealt us a tough blow. At any rate, it's over, everyone is healthy and we look forward to a good 2009.
Over at La Florida, there is a wonderful collection of photographs from SGT Mark and his trip to Cumberland Island, Ga. Given all the chaos around the world, there are still quiet places to go to contemplate.
Happy New Year.
