As we come to the close of the year and celebrate the season of goodwill and peace.

We wish you all our readers , advertisers and everyone a very Happy and Peaceful  Christmas.

There are people in other parts of the world that will not have the peace we enjoy at this time,

with family and friends. Indeed we have witnessed a change in our own society this year.

We are all from this same planet and maybe it is time we reflect this fact.

We are only the custodians of this precious earth in the time we are here.

Over 2000 years ago a little baby was born in a stable in Bethlehem because there was no room

in the inn, has much changed.
