  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
2011 in Review by Loretto on 28 December 2011 9:26pm

This is something I have been putting together bit by bit since I started doing "Sunday's Newspapers" on my blog. I hope 2012 is a better year for all.

Really well done video, Loretto. 2011 certainly saw a lot of devastation as well as victories.

Here's to hoping that 2012 will treat us all well.

Excellent but sad Loretto. Thank you.

I really enjoy the Sunday's Papers part of the blog, and I thought this was a nice way to finish the 2011 news. Thanks for watching it.

Thank you Loretto for taking the time and sharing it with us. ( I'm a sooky bastard ) ;)

Thanks for the warnings...I know there has been sadness and loss, so I'll save watching this video when I get overly manic and have run out of lithium pills!

Joking aside...Happy New Year, Loretto and may your 2012 be the best you can make it!

Thanks Pete. If you have any extra lithium pills I could do with them....

No, seriously, there were a lot of natural disasters in 2011, but that's been going on since the dawn of man, we just know what to call them now and how to measure them. I think the most frightening thing mentioned in 2011 news, and I didn't put it in the video, is that the population of the planet will be 9 billion by 2050. I'll be 81 years old then, my son will be 52! According to the UN report there isn't enough water or food on the planet to feed 9 billion people.

Pass the lithium please.
