All the best for 2010 from me as well.

 

Thanks to all who have provided me with advice within the Shetlink forum in 2009. My wife and I moved to these beautiful islands in April 2008 and we have been assisted in our settling in by the friendliness shown by the wonderful folks here.

Wikipedia[/url]"]Year zero is not used in the widely used Gregorian calendar, nor in its predecessor, the Julian calendar. Under those systems, the year 1 BC is followed by AD 1.

 

The system of naming years as AD or BC dates from 525 AD. The concept of Zero as a number was not used in the West until the thirteeth century.
