Christmas and New Year's Definately Days to Reflect and Look Ahead

   Northern New Yorkers awoke to a dusting of fresh snow as a white Christmas was the order of the day and seasonal temperatures are expected through New Year's.

    Most people I know have the traditional feasts on tap and I'm glad I was able to celebrate the holiday last week with family in NC.
     It's not the actual day on the calendar, it's the intent. Today I will be working, but its not really work as you see friends and get to socialize all day. Stop by and have a Catdaddy and egg nog !  I have one Catdaddy-loving customer who has been waiting all year to try it with egg nog. Hope he makes it in.
     It's a melancholy Christmas for many, including of course the survivors of yesterday's brutal shootings in Webster, NY.   Many of our neighbors are readying for another tour of duty overseas and we wish them well.
     Watertown looks back at the year gone by. At City Hall its gone well with a smooth change in management, a new hockey team bringing fun during the NHL lockout, and the successful addition of Sunday hours at the Library.
     A special holiday thank you to John Krol who helped me out by his transition stewardship of the city and help in CM recruitment.
      Thanks to my employees at the Pub as we ready to work a busy New Year's Eve and look to a successful 2013.
       And thanks to my collegues in City government for their dedication in the year gone by.
        Time to get up and go to work. Enjoy your day and don't eat too much.
