As you may know, we have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday we open questions of a personal nature to all of you to answer too. Then, the following week, I post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply. At this time of the year, we usually have a more general question. I decided that perhaps we could use the space to give thanks to someone or for something.
There are two deadlines as I will split the answers over two weeks.

ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 250 words, to before midnight Friday 19 & 26 December.

As the end of 2014 draws to a close, who would you like to thank or what would you give thanks for over the past year? Only one per person, please.

Look forward to reading your replies.

The Oracle.
