Twelve months of pictures

[DEC. 12, 2000]  Time passes, December comes, and we turn to the last page of our calendars. Then it's time to think about the next big turning point, which is a whole new calendar. There are so many options to choose from. Calendar selection is influenced by practical factors such as overall dimensions, readability and space for writing notes in the squares. My primary consideration, however, tends to be whether I like the pictures.
