Happy New Year! The G and not-so G-rated versions (Video)

Goodbye 2011 and hello 2012! HAPPY NEW YEAR! (Video below)

In many ways it will be a pleasure to say goodbye to 2011 and to ring in 2012 with sincere hopes and wishes for a happy and healthy new year for my family and for all people around the world.

Whether this will become the reality remains to be seen, but both personally and globally this has been a year that contained many successes and accomplishments along with challenges and disappointments. A typical year but 2011 was anything but typical!

Taking a more macro global view, saying goodbye to 2011 means saying goodbye to events like Occupy Wall Street (OWS), the so-called Arab Spring (or door's open and step right in to the Muslim Brotherhood), a stagnant US economy with stubbornly high unemployment and a EU economic crisis with that group of countries on the verge of possible collapse.

Ringing in 2012 can mean only one thing beyond any possible resolution to the situations in the previous paragraph: The 2012 presidential election where defeating Barack Obama may or not may define the opportunity for the United States to pull out of the tailspin we currently endure and to step back out into the light of day.

But for now...

Happy New Year, the not-so PG rated version!
