Hi there.

A difficult year has ended on a low note with the not unexpected but still very difficult passing of my father.

I’m going to give myself some time off, and I’ll see you all in 2012, which I’m hoping will be an improvement on 2011.




  1. Condolances hope next year’s better than this one

  2. So sorry and hope next year will be better for everyone.

  3. I’m sorry for the loss of your father.

    I look forward to the return of your regular twitter postings for this column. May 2012 be a better year for all of us.

  4. Sorry to hear about your father, David. Hope 2012 is much happier than 2011!

  5. David, my sincere, heartfelt condolences and sympathy to your and your family.

  6. I’m so sorry to hear that. :( Take care of yourself.

  7. I’m so very sorry to hear this. My condolences to you and your family.

  8. David, I’m so sorry for your loss. My condolences to you, your partner, and your family.
