Housekeeping: Merry New Year!

by Tim Healey

It's the last working day of the year, and we're going to shut down early so we can par-taaaay.

Or, in my case, veg on the couch watching football (go Irish!).

As per usual, there may be content over the weekend if news breaks or a regular feature comes in a bit late. Otherwise, though, we're off tomorrow, Sunday, and Monday. We'll be back at full steam on Tuesday, January 3rd.

Don't drink and drive, stay COVID-safe, be kind to one another, and again, don't drink and drive. Stay safe and we will see you next year.

And thanks to the great movie Trading Places for that headline.

Merry New Year!
