Happy New Year

As the International Year of Chemistry draws to a close it seems fitting to offer seasonal greetings to all those in the chemical and wider scientific communities who believe in the power of chemistry to make life better. Thus, I offer the traditional salutation in several languages of CHF friends and supporters:
