2014 (MMXIV) will be a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2014th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 14th year of the 3rd millennium, the 14th year of the 21st century, and the 5th year of the 2010s decade.
It’s likely to be one of the most significant years in history if you come from my part of the planet. In July/August, my home city will be the focus of the XX Commonwealth Games, the biggest multi-sports event that we could ever dream of hosting (we simply don’t have the infrastructure to host an Olympics), while the following month will see the people of Scotland go to the polls and decide if they would like to be an independent country and so break away from the United Kingdom of Great Briatain & Northern Ireland.
I may or may not return to such subjects in the months ahead, but for now, I’m content to just stick to the music. Here’s a very short message from Clare and the boys:-

And to you dear readers, here’s hoping all that you want from 2014 is realised.
