This begins our fifth year of operation. Five years?!? How time flies. We’ve been thrilled how the blog continues to grow. But we are not going to rest on our laurels. We hope to make 2012 the most exciting year yet on GR.

Here’s to an thrilling New Year! And, as to you time travelers, well, you already know what a thrilling year it’s gonna be. That’s why you’re here.
