As the holidays approach, it’s the time of year we take stock, mentally rewinding the past 12 months and years past. Have you been naughty or nice? Did you meet your New Year’s goals? I decided to reminisce about 2016 to the tune of “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” however, sticking to the repetitive chorus is completely optional.

A strong RFS for the country .
