  1. I'm so perplexed by this ... why the jump to so far ahead? So much is to be determined.

    Interesting, though.

  2. Thanks Duke!

    My goal is to update all the different categories and years on a rotating basis, interspersing the current year and future years together. It will take a little bit of time to get a rhythm down and to work out all of the bugs, but I hope that it will keep things interesting, and give me a way to update things as they change.

    Thanks for checking me out!
