As is our custom here at the Cranach blog, we will devote the days up to and including New Year’s Eve looking back on the year that is ending. Then, starting New Year’s Day, we will look ahead to the year that is beginning. The high points will be on December 31 when we will review YOUR predictions for 2014 that commenters made last year, when 2014 was all full of possibilities. The best prediction–some of which, in years past, have verged on the legendary–will win all kinds of virtual accolades and bragging rights. Then on January 1, we will provide a forum for you to make your predictions for what will happen in 2015, and we will see who is the best prognosticator around this time next year. So be thinking and getting your prophecies in order!
