I know he's @ianbetteridge, but I just pulled out that one tweet, which was
retweeted (I think) by NewtonTalk.  I'll have to do some serious research
when I'm not doing serious celebration of 2013.   It's just turning midnight
here...   ;-)  

HAPPY NEWT YEAR TO EVERYONE (with a nod to Woo Lee)!  May your lum reek and
your Newton glow!  

PS - apparently we're supposed to have another end of the world NOW, but
somehow I doubt it.
