Thank You...... Happy Holidays & New Year !

Although this year I wasn't able to write as many articles (something I hope changes in 2017), I have none the less appreciated every comment, reader, and follower of mine.

To me it's a humble compliment, and a joy to be part of the SeekingAlpha community! I have made great relationships and have learned so much from all of you, in return for whatever I can share on the site.

I hope everyone reading this is having a wonderful holiday season, and a new year full of joy, health, and prosperity. If life is bringing hardship, I wish strength and bravery as one faces adversity. I thank those who have a loved one in the military for their sacrifices, as well as our dear veterans. May 2017 be a great year for all, and THANK YOU again for your contributions and loyalty as readers, and many of you new friends!

All the best to you!
