Here is your one-stop December shop. All the links from the blog are below bar one or two which are not worth posting. The final one of 2010. Thank you if you ever came here and hopefully things will only get better in 2011. The Point Of Everything is one year old in a week so I guess I better start planning something good for then. This is post number 357 this year, which, considering how neglected this site was after six months, is quite good. Check out December over the weekend though. See you next year.
