It’s Been 14 Years Since the Fear of Y2K Took Place – Happy New Year!
So here it is, the final day of 2013. It seems like yesterday we were all worried about Y2K happening when the year 2000 rolled around. Oh the computers of the world were going to all malfunction that year and the “world will come to an end”. It didn’t happen. I wonder what people were worried about when 1900 rolled around. “Would horses stop running?” Were people worried that the world would end then too?
Well, here we are staring 2014 in the face. There’s no talk of the world ending although there is plenty to worry about. 2014 or MMXIV in Roman numeral form is the 14th year of the 3rd millennium, the 14th year of the 21st century, and the 5th year of the 2010’s decade (per Wikipedia). The year has been designated by the United Nations as the International Year of Family Farming which should hit home to folks around this area.
No matter how you look at or call it, lets hope 2014 is a great year for everyone. We could all use a great year. Why not make 2014 it? Here’s to 2014!
