Happy New Year

New Year's Eve has pretty much become a non-event in our house. The little ones will probably go to bed around 9:00, which means I'll get to hit the sack somewhere around 10:00. Am I an old fart or what ? Then again, how many times do I have to watch a ball drop in Times Square to the tune of the same old countdown. 10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1...HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

I mean, come on, it's just like the movie Titanic, right ? No matter how many times you watch it, the ship sinks. Oh, I suppose there is a "love story" in there as well. Nevertheless, no matter what channel I watch it on, it's the same old story...countdown timer in the lower right hand of the screen, a few musical performances from artists I've barely heard of (unless it is Miley Cyrus, Cheetah Girls or Zoey 101 - don't get me started on the Zoey 101 thing - I've got 2 daughters that watch that show daily), ball on a pole starts to drop, ball falls to the base of the pole and show host performs mindless countdown task, fireworks, yeah, happy new year, singing, dancing, yada, yada, yada.....back to work on Wednesday..... :)

Enough banter, let's get serious....I want to send my best wishes to everyone for a safe, happy and healthy new year.
