Fringe - the Two-Hour Final Episode

Watched the finale Friday night, and it was -- okay. At least Olivia went over to the alternate universe, something SORELY missing in this last season!!

The alternate universe was what made the series interesting. It was hard to keep watching and hoping at the same time they'd make the return.

But it's in the history books now, and no doubt before too long the fifth season will be out on DVD.

Maybe one day I'll buy the series set, but not today.

A Quick Look Back at 2012

Another year has come and gone, and some of it was okay, and some of it (most of it?) wasn't so good.

People died  (Whitney Houston, Robin Gibb, Andy Griffith, and Dick Clark just to name a few).

There were terrible natural disasters (the usual - earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes), the most notable was Hurricane Sandy.

There were mass murders (movie theater in Aurora Colorado, Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown Conn. just to name the worst).

Hussein Obama was reelected.

But there were a few bright spots -- Curiosity successfully landed on Mars, Queen Elizabeth's 60th anniversary on becoming Queen of England, The Avengers was the highest grossing movie of the year.

And I actually made more money this year than I ever have.

Will 2013 be any better? Don't see how it could be any worse -- which means that it will!
