    Well, folks. The last month of the year is upon us. What will December bring? Predictions? Planned projects? This rambling thread is not restricted to any particular topic.

    I predict...

    Our improved hub traffic will continue.

    We will all still be around on the 22nd.

    We will all be nicer to each other than usual.

    Traffic to HubPages did fall slightly from the large rise we had a few days ago, however it only dropped a very tiny amount, I guess that tiny amount was the holiday traffic, the rest of it is true traffic.

      I've got simultaneous traffic from 4 continents at the moment. Now if just Australia and Russia would drop by...

    Yes....the final month of another year......I think it brings us much opportunity.  A time to reflect...a time to be grateful, time to repair and or simply remember and a time to plan.  We must not forget to be in the moment of each day, as well, so we're able to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of December and all it brings us via the Holidays....

    No doubt, we will still be around December 23rd and traffic will remain high until January, where I expect  dip coming after the holidays.  Things will go on as always, until the next disaster, when we begin to rethink our lives and our blessings.
