Dear Friends,

First, I would like to offer best wishes for joyful holidays and a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.

Second, I would like to say that to me "discussion" implies exchange of views. Here discussion appears to have stopped. Is it time to shut down this group and move on to something else?

Here in Japan it is almost 5:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2009. Best wishes to all on whatever holidays you celebrate. A warm thanks for being here and participating in our conversations. May the new year be a peaceful, healthy and prosperous one.

I wish a happy new year to all the members of this group and of oac! I also hope that 2010 will bring new life and energy to our discussions.
