Lots of people seem happy to see the back of 2012. While not particularly notable for any reason, HM has lots of reasons to put 2012 well over to the annus mirabilis side of the ledger. Some of the things, people & places that don't know HM exists, but which provided support or nourishment of some kind during 2012, for which we are thankful:
The Drone Zone
Lamy mechanical pencils
This illuminated loupe
Thankful for many others too, who we're lucky enough do know HM.
