A Christmas Message From TEEX Director Gary Sera

Seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating the new millennium. Yet, here we are about to enter into its second decade. The world has changed in many ways during this time, and some debate whether it’s for better or for worse. Social networking is here to stay, with today's youth now strongly identifying and connecting through this medium. The term Green now means something more than money—it’s a sustainable way to contribute to your bottom line. Finally, we have an economy that is about as fickle as it can be. It seems to be getting better, but then lingers on like a bad cold that doesn’t want to go away.

What always seems to be a refreshing constant is the spirit of this season. This is the time when friends and family can share peace and love, and where the world seems to slow down. It is a time when we can all actually say, “Let's wait until next year to work on that.” We can all actually take a deep breath as we prepare to soar into the New Year with new hope and renewed energy. Here is wishing you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous new year.

Gary Sera is director of the Texas Engineering Extension Service and invites your comments.
