Greetings and Salutations, Editors!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season! I have just returned from an absolutely delightful weekend trip down to Georgia and South Carolina. My great aunt Dot, who is aged 89, lives there with her family. I had never met any of them! My father (aged 64) and I went down to see them and also his brother. It was a fantastic family reunion. The last time my father had seen his cousin was in 1958!

I'm back home now and have quite a stack of email :) I will be getting back to everyone as quickly as I can! I do have a final exam in my Technology-and-society class which must be taken today, so I'll be doing that first, and then I'll sit down with all the email. The class is a *fascinating* one, it's all about how technology changes have affected the culture we live in and visa versa. It's got a lot of topics immediately applicable to the things we are doing here. I've talked about the class in our Distance Learning forum if anyone is interested.

In other great news, Jeanne is back from her medical leave and doing wonderfully - you can read about that in the Editor Forums! Also Jilly is back from her short break and will be taking over the brand new trainees while Michelle is out on sabbatical. So the existing trainees who begun with me will stay with me until they graduate. The brand new trainees who Jilly is bringing on will stay with her. That way there is as little confusion as possible!

So that's the current status! Please give Jeanne and Jilly a few days to catch up with their areas, and I'll catch up as quickly as possible as well.

In the meantime, rest, relax, enjoy some hot cocoa, and cherish the serenity and peace which is the reason December exists!
