However you plan to celebrate the entrance of 2015, I hope it is filled with all of your favorite things…Health, Happiness, Family, Friends and a good piece of Dark Chocolate.  Our travels brings us to Sedona, Arizona for some Hiking, Biking and Pink Jeep tours of the famous (red) Sandstone formations that illuminate the landscape.  I’m sure you’ve heard this 1982 “chart-topper” by Donna Loren entitled, Sedona:

Farewell and thanks for the memories!

Wishing you and your loved ones a Pleasant and Peaceful Shabbat Shalom and a Happy Healthy 2015!
