OK, that's been it for this year, as next time you'll read anything new on this blog will be after the challenge has started. And as I want this year to be over asap I've decided for myself to let my new year begin with the start of the challenge on Monday. Given that there'll, as of now, be no fireworks allowed in my part of Germany it shouldn't make much of a difference anyway.
Good luck, a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year to all you fine folk out there! See you on the other side.
