This year we spent a relatively quiet New Year, gathering at a friend's house for some appetizers before heading to a concert. After the concert, we headed to another friend's (part of our concert group) for refreshments to bring in the New Year. Naturally, my wife and I had a great time gathering with friends and discussing a variety of topics. However, our greatest thrill was sharing a Face time chat with our twin grandsons who are only six months old. That was the highlight of the evening. Best wishes to everyone at IRIB English Radio for the coming New Year.
