This will be my last blog post for the year as I am taking a break for Christmas and New Years. I really want to thank you all for reading and following my blog.
I certainly plan to keep blogging next year so don't think I have given up! You should see new updates in mid January.
2011 has been an amazing year with some great highs and some terrible lows. I certainly hope that 2012 is a bright year for everyone in the world, especially those whose lives have been affected by natural disaster and political upheaval.
To close, I want to wish you all a great holiday season, a Merry Christmas, a happy Hanukkah and a Happy New year and share with you three of the most important messages to take into the holiday season:
Firstly, stay safe. Here is a brilliantly put together (and totally serious) road safety message from New Zealand:
Secondly, stay healthy. If you can dance like these guys in a clip from the classic 1973 film of Jesus Christ Superstar, you will be very fit indeed! It is like a Zumba class on steroids (the video has a slow start, it really kicks off at 0:37 but it is worth the wait).
Thirdly, lets hope in 2012 that all of the worlds leaders will focus on peace and love. Here is a 1980s power ballad (yet again I show my age) with a very Christmas themed video clip. Enjoy.
