The New Decade of 2020
« on: January 01, 2020, 06:03:03 AM »
Good Day Gentlemen,

Here we are looking upon a new decade, a new horizon.

I truly hope and pray that each and every one of you stay safe, stay well in health and mind,

stay strong in life and stay vigilant against all evil for the health of the world and all of it's good people.

It won't be easy. . . . . . but good will always be stronger than evil.

The Best to You All for the optimism of what lays ahead.

Sincere Respectful Regards,

I concur.
‘Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive...those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.‘

Here we are a year later and at the end of Pandora's box again; maybe some of that hope can be converted to health and prosperity this year.

Actually, the New Decade does not start on 2020 but on 2021.  You start with year 1 so you end on year 10 and start a new one on 11 and so on.

Anyway, let's try this again, 2020 does not have many good memories for me, we can do better.

Apparently, that rule applies only to centuries and millennia and not decades. so, back to the main point that 2020 was a bummer.

OK, the first decade only had 9 years?   ???

Or did we start with year Zero?    ???

Who cares, have a Happy New Year!     :)

Now I'm really confused...
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!
