First post of the new decade, the last one was a bit of a roller coaster ride and not exactly enthralling for optimists. In fact if anyone got out of the past 10 years without once feeling a touch of depression about the state of things then bravo.
Time marches on and to be honest we are the only animals to mark it (which is conjuring up images of peeing on things but nevermind I know what I mean.)
The snow and ice are lying thick on the ground, untouched by plough or tractory beast from the council. The next 10 years will pass and so on and so on.
