New Year 2013

"The practice of making New Year’s resolutions is said to have begun with the Babylonians as early as 2600 B.C. The Roman god Janus—who gave January its name—was pictured as two-faced so that one face took a retrospective view and the other looked forward to new beginnings and renewed commitments." -The Old Farmer's Almanac [email blurb]

Have a wonderful, blessed, and prosperous New Year! Welcome 2013!
