Hey Andy, you are already in 2018 at the time of this writing. Please give us Yanks a SITREP so we know what to expect next year

Happy New years to one and all fellow filers! Don't forget to eat your corned beef, cabbage, and black eyed peas on New Years Day for health, wealth, and whatever that third thing is the black eyed peas are supposed to bring(?).

Cheers brothers. I love this place
