Goodby Noughties, Hello Teenies?

I can't believe that it is now 2010. Where did 2009 go? Where did the noughties go? I don't know if we are now in the tens or the teenies. Do we say two thousand and ten or pronounce the year like a cricket match and say twenty ten?

I can't say that all of our economic problems are behind us though. The world economy is still quite fragile so there will be further turmoil this year. The global financial crisis (GFC) didn't strike nearly as hard as the Great Depression but (hopefully) has taught the greedy some lessons. I don't think that enough people will have learnt the lesson because governments were too willing to pull them out of the poo and not allow them to be punished for their greed as the market would have done.

I hope that 2010 is kind to you. I hope that you work hard and gain rewards for your efforts. I hope that you and your family are safe and healthy. I hope that Kevin Rudd and his government are removed from office. Probably can't have everything though and that's wishful thinking.

Have a happy and properous new year.

You too. We'll have to see about that. Greed is a nasty seed. Annette
