So here we come to the start of a new year - so it's cheerio to 2011 and hello to the new.
2011 has not really set the world alight in any great shakes, at least not for me that is. Many of us have lost someone close to us and are only too glad to draw a line under the old and get on with life in a new year. Many prominent or famous people have left us, often leaving a legacy either fulfilled or sadly lacking completion.
Sir Jimmy Savile - stylish even in death, being buried in his beloved Scarborough at a 45 degree angle overlooking the bay.

Amy Winehouse - such a talent, making us wonder what really could have been.

Gary Speed - ex-footballer and Manager of the Welsh national side, took his own life for reasons unknown.

Elizabeth Taylor, Steve Jobs, Joe Frazier, Seve Ballesteros, the list goes on.......
To all those I have mentioned and those I have temporarily forgotten, God bless you and may you all rest in peace.
A new year is a good time to start afresh, to reflect on where you have been going wrong and try to do something about it. Ring out the old and ring in the new!
Happy New Year everyone and......
