Happy New Year to everyone on our blog! We rang in 2020 at home in McLean, Virginia. New Year’s eve is also my wedding anniversary. Twenty-one years ago, Leslie and I eloped in Old Town Alexandria after dating eight years. Once again, we will celebrate two anniversary dates. I count the anniversary as our 30th while Leslie insists on counting this year as our 22nd anniversary. We will toast our anniversary and the New Year (as we did 22 years ago) with a bottle of Schramsburg Cremant.
While the Chicago Cubs, Bears and Blackhawks have not dominated this year, we were a bit too busy in Chicago with other matters. Thus, next year will do fine with a sweep of all of the national championships.
I will be giving the summary of our year on the blog later today, but I wanted to wish everyone a safe and joyous new year in 2020. It has been a wonderful year with our rapidly expanding community. I cannot thank you enough for contributing to our daily dialogue on issues great and small in our society.
Happy New Year to everyone on our blog.
