What's in Your Future? Happiness, we Hope and Pray!

We celebrate the New Year by looking back
and by looking forward.

"Time keeps on slipping into the future," Chicago.
On the internet, io9 presents 18 predicted tech advances that came true in 2013. Even after knowing that we can now help the seriously injured and handicapped, the advances of cybernetics still amaze me.

My son works with carbon tubules, so knowing that nano-tech is so advanced as to produce computer circuits and power sources reassures me that he will have a good future in his chosen career field.

Listserve mentions 10 predictions that came true over the last 100 years. Some are amazing in their accuracy. The tablet computer, online newspapers and education, robots, and flying cars are a few examples. Another amazing fete is the prediction of Elena Sheppard of all winners of the Oscars of 2013.

Time to celebrate.
Here in Texas, that
means serving good food.
Close to home, I am sure you have checked your personal predictions and resolutions to see how you fared. Was 2013 all you hoped it would be? Will 2014 be a better year for you?

Perfect for upcoming
parties and visits!
What changes will you be making to your home this year? Be sure to come by Mertie's This and That to shop for those classic items that make a home comfortable.

Remember, our present and future are rooted in our past!

Mertie and I wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that time is good you. Despite all our problems and ongoing issues, 2014 promises much for us all.
What cheers a home better than potted plants? Or prepares the soul for spring than new flowers for the yard. Plants are available at Mertie's This and That. Also, now is the time to get outdoor decor: benches, signs and plant racks.
