In L.A., 2013 is a less than three hours away.
2012 wasn't bad, but financially, it could've been better. One thing I can be grateful for: NO family member funerals to attend. That hasn't been the case for quite some time.
Will 2013 be better? Maybe. But it looks to be a continuance of 2012 or worse if the federal government raises taxes on top of the new Obamacare taxes that we'll be saddled with.
As for California, things are getting bad to worse with the one-party state government thinking that the people exist to fund the government, not the government existing to serve the people. I am starting to consider moving out of California. It was once the "Golden State." Not anymore.
I am looking forward to the Mad Monster Party that's coming up in three months in Charlotte, North Carolina. I haven't been on the east coast since June 1982.
I plan to be at the New Year's celebration in Little Tokyo tomorrow.
Happy New Year!
