Merry New Year!

The title is Eddie Murphy in Trading Placesbut I'm also reminded of the New Year's episode(s) of M*A*S*H, where Colonel Potter said,"Here's to the New Year. May she be a damned sight better than the old one and may we all be home before she's over." it hasn't quite been a Police Action, and I'm very glad to already be home, but the rest of the sentiment holds true, even without the indelible image of Jamie Farr in a Baby New Year diaper. Really, in spite of the last six months, and in part because of them, 2010 wasn't so bad. I started and continued the year feeling very appreciated at work (what with winning a few collaboration awards and the honor of attending the annual recognition conference at Disney World) And I've wrapped it up continuing to feel very fortunate (have I still not written my Thanksgiving entry other than in my head?

My toast for you all is the title of my best -selling self-help book: The Other Secret- Get Everything You Want by Wanting What You Already Have. Some might Call it "settling" or downright laziness,, but I'm just saying cherish everything you have. The only thing certain in this life is that nothing is certain; even death and taxes, which are being pitted against each other somewhere in a government lab

  3. Merry indeed! Write that best-selling book, Ken--I think it's half written already (in your head, right?).

    I hope lots more of your fondest wishes come true for you in 2011.


  4. Merry New Year to you too Ken, and to your family. Wishing you the best year ever!

  5. Ken, thanks for continuing to share the real 'realities' of life as only you have experienced them. Definitely, you are destined to write that book since you are living it! Here's to the positive possibilities that 2011 holds for you, Jamie & the boys!

  6. Hear, hear! Well said, Ken. We can always use a reminder to appreciate what we've got. We spend too much time waiting for life to happen and miss the fact that it's happening NOW. So glad we got to see you on New Year's Day! ♥

  7. Merry New Year, Ken! I hope 2011 brings you every happiness! You surely bring it to a lot of us!!
