Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Merry Christmas to everyone.

Please this christmas, spend sometime with those who you care about, and remember that it is not the amount of money that is spent, or the size of the gift, it is that each one of us are able to spend time together, and remember that Christmas is about family.

So please drive carefully, and don't make alcohol the master of your life.

Both Lee and myself wish you all a safe and prosperous New Year.
