    • Merry Christmas to you and your Family Shiva, thanks so much for taking the time to add your well wishes, it means a lot my friend. I’ll drink a toast to success for both of us and everyone we know in the blogging community for 2012

  2. I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year ahead. May the New Year unfold great opportunities and success for your blog. 2011 made me discover your blog and I’m sure you’ll have plenty of interesting things to share in 2012.

    I would have to agree, Panda was the low point of 2011 and I’m still feeling it and learning what I can from it. Don’t want to think what Google will come up with in the New Year.

  4. It may be too late to wish you a merry Christmas but then it is not too late to wish you a happy 2012.Your blog has been awesome and I hope it will continue that way in this new year. Winston is a cute cat. :)

    • Hey FRE, thanks very much for your well wishes and may I take this opportunity to wish you a happy new year too. Winston appreciates the compliments too  Here’s to a year filled with great success for all.
