2008 was a roller coaster ride – for sure!

We had the longest presidential campaign in history, gas prices went sky-high then dropped, stocks dropped, home values dropped, and my butt and my boobs dropped – what’s left?

Will 2009 be better? Anybody’s guess how far we’ll get with our country’s future plans built on “hope” and “change.”

Looking back one year ago this month, maybe things are looking up:

– Crude oil hit $100 per barrel. Gold hits $1,000 per ounce.

– Snow fell in Baghdad, Iraq for the first time in a century.

Shake off the winter doldrums
