    You and yours as well.
    Just spoke to my daughter in Colorado. She and some friends are gathering in an apartment in her complex. Good news, no driving.
    Wife and I are doing the old folks thing, staying in and popping the bubbly at midnight.
    Happy-happy, y'all.

    Here in Ontario we have what the police call "Ride Program"...

    The city police will setup maybe for a half an hour on one of the main streets. All the car going either direction will be checked for drunk or near drunk drivers. Then they will move onto another street and do it all over again somewhere else on the city. In the county the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) do main county roads and even side roads the same way under the Ride Program.

    The drunk drivers (over the limit) get hustled to jail and the near the illegal limit drivers will have their drivers licence suspended for 12 hours.

    SWMBO and I are doing what we have done for the last 20+ years... spending the evening watching the festivities in Times Square. Hopefully Dick Clark will feel up to putting in an appearance again this year.

    I bbq'd the last steaks of the year, and we're baby sitting our granddaughter to boot... it doesn't get much better in my opinion.

    Have a safe and prosperous New Year everyone.

    I am sure I will be sleeping when the time comes...

    The last news I saw was 2000.

    Any Way...

    Happy New Year.

    After I get all buzzed on warm beer and cheap wine, I'm gonna go unload a few clips of 9mm skyward just to celebrate. And then go driving at high speed through the neighborhood.

    Either that, or go have me a frozen dinner and catch up on some reading. Yeah, probably that. But I'll be up at midnight. I always am.

    I have a friend in Albuquerque with whom I've spent all but 7 or 8 New Years in the past 35 years or so. As we've gotten older, the celebrations have become more and more sedate, but we never were the wild and crazy party types. This is gonna be one of the years we miss, but I did get a chance to see him last weekend.

    Sounds like where we used to live in Antioch, CA.

    Now, If I go out at midnight, if I'm lucky, I might hear some coyotes, but most likely just some distant traffic from the highway 2 miles away...

    New Years tonight

    Well,

    with all the loud (I mean some of these are like "bombs") fireworks going off nearly all day (some been blowing them up since Thanksgiving) We know it's just about 2010. I wish I could record (wait, I think I might try my digital camera tonight) the noise, smoke, and the flashes all around us.

    May 2010 be the best for all.
