And a Merry Christmas to all 10 years later :-).

I hope 2018 was good for you and that 2019 will be better. I have enjoyed reading Sam's diary for a few years now but missed the first time round.. We are living through disruptive history now that will be in the history books for the next few hundred years (Maybe) - funny to think people will be reading about Trump, Syria, Brexit and wondering how we felt about it at the time .. so to paraphrase Todd -

Here's to a safe, happy and healthy 2019/1666 to all assembled here!
