Rather like the people of Zimbabwe, for the last three years we have said to ourselves 'this coming year can't get any worse' - but it does. This past year had the impact of the Christchurch earthquake in February as well as Bill English's tax hike on products, but you wonder if more generally it's a case of people wanting to spend less, or ever more distraction in electronic form. Probably it's both, and indeed we have added to the latter with all the posts on here, however, they are intended as appetite whetters for reading a book on the particular subject.
We plough on. Thanks go to customers around the world, and those who have sent pics for inclusion in this blog. Have a happy and safe New Year's!
