A Hopefully Happy New Year

The end of a rather tumultuous year is nearly upon us, and it seems 2021 has one last thing up its sleeve pandemic-wise. I'm sure many of you will appreciate the severity of the phrase "1.5 day doubling time" when it comes to Omicron, and join me in hoping there's something else that mitigates that effect.

As a result of the double-header of Christmas and New Year, there'll be a three-week gap until the next issue of Tales so I can take some proper time off from everything and maybe go build a scale model of a pumped hydroelectric plant or something.

Still, as we turn to see in what is hopefully a better year, I hope you're all doing as well as you can - look after yourselves and those around you, relish in the good things we've all accomplished this year, and I'll see you all in 2022!
