Happy New Year 2024

Happy New Year 2024

Another planetary sojourn around the sun has ended and another commences. Plus ca change, plus ca le meme chose as the French say. But who cares?

The purpose of this statement is to give sufficient details of what transpired to show that our decision was reasonable and not taken …
