Happy New Year!

So it didn’t happen after all. The world did not suddenly end on Friday, December 21, 2012.
Remembering back to previous ‘supposed’ calamitous events that never happened, the so called Y2K [AKA the Millenium Bug], formed part of the back-drop to the third book in my ‘Dark Retribution Quartet’: Hitting Back ...

... set during 1999; another year over-shadowed with mounting paranoia of what disasters might befall us all.
I’m guessing this might be the last we hear of the Mayan calendar [like it all really worked for them!], but my money’s still on the Vogons from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy turning up for real to demolish the Earth to make way for a new hyperspace by-pass.
Ford, put me down for 20. I’m good for it.
Wasn’t the Rapture meant to occur in 2011?
Wasn’t the Hadron Collider going to blow a gasket, snap an elastic band, turn the planet inside out and all of us into dark anti-matter as we spiraled down into a man-made Black Hole [or something]?
Wasn’t it all meant to go snap, crackle and boom way back during 1666 – especially as some fear-mongers decided to exclude the 1 off of the front of the year date?
And these are just a few of many predictions that never came true. I recently heard that ‘something’ was meant to happen during 1996. I must have been asleep for the whole 12 months because whatever alarmist garbage was predicted for that year evaded me.
I’m wondering what the next fear-inducing, money-making prediction will be. Time will tell, but I’ll continue working towards my goals and doing better things with my money, just as I always have.
Sure, bad things happened during those years mentioned, just as they have every year … but still nothing near apocalyptic.
As for me, I’m moving forward, taking it all one step, and one day at a time, concentrating on seeing my various projections through to completion … just as I always have.
I wish everyone a happy, productive, peaceful and safe 2013. 
Vacation’s over … time for me to get back to work.
Keep writing the words!
