In the words of Rogers & Hammerstein,

"So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night

I hate to go and leave this pretty sight

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu

Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu."

Adios, shalom, tiejen, ciao carissimi...

Except for a short period last summer when I stopped writing the blog, I have been doing this continuously for over three and a half years now.

It's been a lot of fun and I've made many new friends.

Your comments have, in the main, been delightful, insightful, welcome and on the mark.

But all things come to an end.

Last year I cancelled my Vancouver Sun subscription. This morning I canceled my Globe & Mail subscription.

May music and laughter remain constants in all our lives.

May all the politicians retire and give us back our money.

May Life be kind to you.

Thank you and good night.
