It’s almost New Year’s Eve.  Not the one where you get inebriated, watch a ball drop, and call it a night after singing Auld Lang Syne.  It’s Rosh Hashanah, where even after food, family and guilt, the night is far from over as the guilt lingers.

What about the old adage that says: “Once something is broken, you can fix it, but it will never be the same again.”  Isn’t it just easier to get a new one, whatever it is?  I’m just saying…

Happy New Year.
