Clock just passed midnight here in Oz.
So goodbye to a year many of us would prefer to forget and so best wishes for 2021.
Regards from down-under.

|Maybe we could go back to the old, pre 1752, calendar and start the fresh year on March 25 as the first months of 2021 look grim and the whole of the annus horriblis can be shunted back onto 2020 old style|

Frances IoM -
You know what would happen if you proposed that too publicly - a chorus on Twitter of the types even less numerate than I, all accusing you of wanting to shorten their lives by three months!
(As when the odd quarter-day problem was finally solved by introducing the Leap Year, at a time when the artificial calendar had drifted well out of kilter with the natural one.)
Happy New Year One & All!

2021 versus 2020
A bit mixed here - firstly, no matter how bad (and 2020 has been bad) I have long made it a rule never to have regrets - After a close friend chose Edith Piaf's 'Non, je ne regrette rien' after she lost her fight with leukemia I have tried to follow her example.
2021 offers a retirement from a career I have enjoyed for more than 40 years, but on the other hand hopefully a healthier future supported by effective vaccines.
So may 2021 bring everyone (and your families & friends) here health, happiness and the chance to do as much model engineering as you wish.
May all your work be accurate, your soldered joints be sound and may you never break a tap!

But it is a totally artificial transition not even coinciding with the shortest day which would at least be logical.

Yep, Happy New Year to all. ‘’.21 should get better - we have likely at most 4 months to continue shielding in our household. I just fear for the NHS in the interim, as I hear more and more about the failure to follow the isolation rules by so many - that’s apart from what we read in the news.

I'm sceptical about any improvement
The numbers say a 5% kill rate which is 3 million in the UK
We aren't even at 100,000 yet
Would be happy to be wrong but the numbers don't lie, only politicians lie
