According to 'calculations', It happened on Jan 22 /08.

Dr. Cliff Arnall, a psychologist from Cardiff University in Wales, devised a formula identifying the third Monday of every January as the most depressing day of the entire year. The days are short, dark and cold. Winter's chokehold tightens as the calendar constantly reminds us summer is still months away. The thrill of Christmas is a distant memory, but credit card bills are mounting along with failed New Year's resolutions.


When you figure that about a month ago, some of us were wracking up the ol' visa bills to pay for Holliday gifts and what not; now the bills have arrived, and 'who wouldn't be pulling their hair out'?

I've heard that the highest suicide rate is around this time of year. Not a pleasant thought...I know.

Well....(raising my glass in toast now)...

"Here's to a better year for should only get better from here on out"!
