    I will be working, mostly away from my office, also known as my work corner in the living room. Then Ann and I will be staying home for New Years Eve with snacks and bubbly and movies and cribbage.

    That sounds lovely. Happy New Year to you and Ann.

    It will surprise nobody to hear that I have little or no idea what I’m doing tonight. I have to work for a while longer, then? We’ll see.
