The Last Drop

Another year done.

The grounds of 2004 brewed up quite nicely and gave us many a great cup...

Calgary Flames come alive and make a valiant run for the Stanley Cup... My little girl's First Day of School... "The Great Decaffeination" (ironically enough)... SpaceShipOne claims the coveted X Prize... Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ"... Killer Whale-watching off the coast of Vancouver Island... The Mars rovers (not to be confused with the Irish Rovers)... Boston Red Sox finally lay the "curse" to rest... Olympic Games return to their birthplace in Athens, Rome... Cuppojoe.com goes online (although, still "Under Construction" *sigh*)... Google introduces Gmail and ups the ante in the world of webmail... Our Sunday Drive to Didsbury...

Of course, there were a few bitter cups, as well...

War continues in Iraq... NHL Lockout ends hope for a 2004-2005 hockey season... Hostage crisis in Russian school claims over 200 lives... Train bombing rocks Spain... More beheadings at the hands of terrorists... Celebrities die (Pierre Burton, Yassar Arafat, Christopher Reeve, Rodney Dangerfield, Janet Leigh, Julia Child, Fay Wray, Rick James, Isabel "Louise Jefferson" Sanford, Marlon Brando, Ray Charles, Ronald Reagan, Tony Randall, Estee Lauder, Alistair Cooke, Peter Ustinov, Jack Paar, Bob "Captain Kangaroo" Keeshan)... Asian Tsunamis bring widespead death and destruction...

And so, we come to the point where we must throw away the soggy filter of damp, used grounds that was 2004, and begin brewing the new pot that will become 2005. May the exhilarating aroma fill your lives and each cup bring a smile to your face.

Happy New Year!
