New year brings price jump on almost everything

We all look back on the year past and wonder just what 2012 will hold for us.

Well here we are starting off a new year…let’s hope it’s a good one

By the time my news gets out Christmas will have come and gone, but it will leave many pleasant memories behind.

Merry Christmas to all my family and friends
