Happy 2017, everyone! If you had a good 2016, I hope it blows 2016 out of the water. If, however, 2016 was the flaming dumpster fire it was for me, I hope your 2017 is much, much better!

Why are there seven? That’s a lonely swan. Someone probably ate its mate, as swan was considered a delicacy during the period.
