I must say - I was a bit annoyed with the length of the 2012-2013 winter. I assume the 2013-2014 winter will bring about a similar attitude. That's why I'm elated to work with YMT Vacations on a 12-day cruise of the Hawaiian Islands. We depart on February 14, 2014 (Happy Valentine's Day!).
I'm one of those dinosaurs who still reads newspapers. I actually have four delivered to my home daily. In addition, as someone who works for a media company that shares a corporate identity with a daily newspaper, I have a vested interest in seeing newspapers succeed (or at least in seeing one local newspaper succeed).
