While we may not be able to head back 1889 to attend this Flea Circus, we can celebrate the end of the year and the beginning of a new one. So ring out the old, ring in the new, and may 2013 be a damn sight better than 2012 was. Although the year, overall, wasn't the worst, we lost quite a few people along the way. May everyone enjoy the end of the festive season, and may everyone have a safe, and prosperous 2013. I'd like to also thank everyone and anyone who has contributed to my blog, either via comments, emails or shared links - it's always heartening to know that people are reading. Let's keep going and reach some loftier heights. Onwards and upwards.
And, just for fun, here's a note from Arthur Conan Doyle from the early 20th century.
