Thanks for the props Yehuda! I was really surprised to see my name. I never realize that anyone might actually be reading my blog, which I write primarily for myself I suppose :)

Props to you too by the way. Your blog is by far the most reliable one in my RSS reader! The rest of us just post occasionally, but every time I refresh, I've got something new from you to read, which is a real treat! So thanks for a great 2007, and here's hoping for another great year in 2008.

Aw, thanks for the props Yehuda! Much appreciated! Hope your secular new year was of the happy variety!
