Happy New Year!

Thanks to everyone for a great year at the Tudor Q&A blog! I had a lot of ups and downs in 2008, so I'm ready to put it behind me and tackle 2009. Several big anniversaries are coming up that touch various parts of my life. The 500th anniversary of Henry VII's death and Henry VIII's accession to the throne (and Margaret Beaufort's death, and H8 and CofA's wedding and coronation.... You get the idea.) It's also the 400th anniversary of Galileo's first use of a telescope for astronomy, so I'll be helping out with various International Year of Astronomy events.

Here's looking forward to a great 2009!!

I'm with you, Lara! Thing is...my husband and I started 2009 in the very bestest way, by having our two boys and wives home for Christmas this year. How can anything go wonky after that marvelous start???

Happy New Year to all, and thanks for helping make this site such a wonderful thing to wake up to each morning!

Kadoos to you, Lara :)
