The world is going to hell in a hand basket, but then, it's been doing that for eons.

For me, it was my first year in full retirement and I LOVE it. Thumbsup

One good item of news.

would everyone agree with me in that review?

I spent about half of 2013 and most of 2014 renovating a house; however, we moved in at the tail end of November, so I find myself looking back on the whole thing with rosier-than-normal glasses.

Random thoughts about 2014:

At my stage in life if no one close to you dies it's a good year.

Spent more time underwater than ever before, more than 300 dives, many collecting data to help scientists write papers.

Made a new commitment to fitness and I'm really happy how quickly my body has taken to it.

Spent a shitload of time on TTA, so to all of you guys that help keep me from setting churches on fire a heartfelt thanks!

RE: the year 2014
Well, it's certainly the case that the period from Nov 12 2013 to Sep 23 2014 was especially difficult for some people.

Then the stretch from Dec 3 2013 to Oct 19 2014 was comparatively even more miserable for another batch of mankind.

The span from Nov 8 2013 to Jan 16 2015 has a very low probability of turning out well for several people in all parts of the globe and they may as well chuck it in and concede it'll on balance be more negative than uplifting.

On the other hand, a number of people found their experiences between Dec 9 2013 and Dec 2 2014 to be the best period of life they'd yet enjoyed, such that on the Quarrelometer Scale their net coefficient of "Whadda Great Year, Yeah?" completely cancels out the first group's and 15/32 of the second group's index of general misery.

The ratio of individuals casting opinions presuming to speak for the whole of mankind did increase slightly during the period from Sep 26 2013 to Dec 22 2014, which ran the Quarrelometer back about half a needlewidth.

This was my most academically successful year yet.
So it wan't too bad... There was plenty of shit though.

You know, I remember thinking 'this is going to be a very interesting year in history' early in; when stuff around the globe happened. I believe I was incorrect.
