FROM THE COMMISSIONER
Bliadhna Mhath Ur. (a Good New Year).
There is a superstition in some parts of Scotland that it unlucky to wish anyone a happy new year before the new year commences, so I hope I didnít spoil your luck this year with my greetings at the end of last year. Hopefully, it doesnít apply so far from Scotland. Itís also considered unlucky to put your new calendars up before January 1st.
Maimie and I like to get away with a few friends to bring in the new year. We welcomed 2014 at Blairgowrie, a little town near the end of the Mornington Peninsula, with a front beach on Port Phillip Bay and a back beach on Bass Strait.
Best wishes to you all for a healthy, safe and happy year ahead.,
