Holliday Holiday Wishes for You!
First of all let me tell you how crazy making this time of year is for all of us at Holliday Development. For 11 months of the year we have to keep reminding people that there are two "L"s in our name (HOLLIDAY DEVELOPMEMT) and then the month of December comes and messes with our minds:)
Enough of that nonsense as the purpose of this blog is to wish all of you now living at Pacific Cannery Lofts the best in your new homes! We have so enjoyed getting to know you, watching you get to know each other and hearing your stories for the blog.(the blog will be continued in 2010 so if you are interested in being interviewed please let us know) Here is lifting our glasses to you in congratulations and wishing you happy holidays and good times in the new year.
It is my understanding that you had a smashing holiday party. In case you were wondering what HD did to celebrate check out the image. Our tradition is to draw names and then purchase a toy that reminds you of the person you drew. We got some good ones this year. KB got a sock monkey because it had red hair like his, Thomas got a toy porsche because he just finished a 25 hour car race and Cheryl got a toy tow truck because she had a little fender bender recently. At the end of the evening all toys are donated to Toys for Tots.
Happy Holidays from all of us at HD!

Don't forget to EXHALE then RESET!
A new year, another beginning...
During this holiday period, there will be times where you should take some time and decompress.
This year has been particularly challenging for everyone, for a myriad of reasons.
As you ponder next year’s journey, you’ll probably make some new, modify some old and simply write-off promises and resolutions as you do every year about this time.
Before you start the year as you do every year, sit back relax, unwind and check out the articles, news and events on some of a few Oakland’s blogs:
As you go forward in 2010, remember, every problem is an opportunity in disguise.
An example: Benjamin Franklin, constantly switched between two pairs of eye glasses for his varying sight needs, in 1784, Benjamin decided to graft two different prescriptions (at the time, two lenses) into one frame, allowing him to see far or near distances.
The bifocal lens is born
