Happy New Year
It's traditional for "First Footers" (the first person to enter a house in the New Year) to take with them into the house something to eat - a cake or a biscuit; something to drink - often a bottle of beer or wine; and something to help keep the house warm in the coming year - it used to be a piece of coal or a log for the fire, but is now more likely to be something symbolic such as a candle.
For my New Year gift to you and yours I offer you this picture of a delicious Port, taken some time ago in Porto, which was one time capital of Portugal.
I hope 2009 brings you happiness, good health and success in all you strive for. .
