Seasons Greetings 2008

Dear Readers,

It's been an interesting journey this year with many notable events colouring this lap around our Sun. While I usually only brush upon a subject once or twice in my blog it would seem that it has inspired at least two of my readers to look further into some of the topics I've shared my view on and create blogs of their own.
So lives both wound onto and fell off the mortal coil. Governments changed - but somehow managed to stay almost exactly the same. Technology surged ahead in leaps and bounds with Google, Apple and the open-source community leading the charge.

Of course there was plenty of other interesting stuff that I didn't write about. NASA did some fantastic stuff throughout the year. I learnt about these cool dynamic architecture buildings being built in Dubai, amongst other wonders of engineering. Leaps in hydrogen fuel-cell technology have allowed us to build cars that run on hydrogen, with water as it's only emission.

Like every year though, not all news in good news. Further effects of global warming are becoming much more apparent. Wars still plague our race. It's not just the wars you hear about either. There are wars in Africa being fought by children with AK-47 rifles, fighting over land, food and water. PNAC have reinstated their crazy neo-con website. The Zeitgeist continues...

But this is the season to be jolly. It's the time of year to be with family and friends, to celebrate the good times and to remember those that are no longer with us. Eat, drink and be merry.

I would like to thank all my regular readers for taking the time to visit D'gar HQ. A special thanks to those that have taken the time to leave comments, especially those observers that have been bold enough to voice an opposing view. There is no better way to celebrate free speech than to listen to someone who sees things differently.

Have a very safe and happy holiday.

Best wishes,

D'gar HQ.
