[Close on a warm note, even if—face it—you may never hear from these people again.]
So here's to you and yours! I know things will get better. If I've learned anything, it's that time flies when you're (on house arrest in a Swiss chalet/dating Kate Hudson/sentenced to 150 years in prison). And it could be worse! At least I'm not (Tiger, Blago, Kanye, Gov. Sanford, A-Rod, Jon or Kate, a Madoff, John Edwards, Whitney Houston—yes, she had a comeback, but aren't you still glad you're not Whitney Houston?).
Have a wonderful 2010, and remember to hold tight the ones you love, preferably those who still live in your house.
Warm regards from your,
