Have a Safe and Fun Celebration and Let’s Make 2011 The Best Year Ever!
Thank you for your readership and all the best to you and yours for the coming year!
Now that we are nearly at the end of this year, I can only remark that 2008 has been an amazing year of ups and down for The Worley Gig.

That can only mean word is getting out about what a rad blog this is. So if you’ve become a regular reader of The ‘Gig and have passed our URL on to other friends, thank you so much. I promise that 2009 will be even more rad! Happy New Year and all the best to you for 2009!
Let’s make 2008 a good one, OK?
