Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Dagguerreotype of Singapore Town

‘Tis the season… to sign off of social media for a bit and take stock of the year gone by.

To my readers who celebrate Christmas: May this holiday season bring you and your loved ones much joy.

All: Have a wonderful time ringing in 2013.

See you in the new year!
