									               2004 Almanac

                        e love to think to the news not only as to something to read day by
                        day, but also as something to remeber after some months or years.

               So, we decided to put on this Almanac every news we published on
2004 Almanac during the last year, to remeber and to be remembered.

               Enjoy the reading.
