Congratulations to the both of you

All of the writers inspire me to try and be a better blogger since I work with SQL day in and day out.

I just haven't found the time to do anything

But in this new year I plan to aim and high and try to write more and blog more

While trying to create my own personal site.

Congratulations and thanks again.†
