May you be safe from the idiots who think gravity is just a theory and fire off guns, failing to understand that what goes up will come down.

Given the prevalence of accurate timekeeping devices, it is amazing that the explosions that are supposed to signal the new year extend for a four hour period beginning before and extending well after the actual event. Anyone who thinks alcohol and gunpowder is a recipe for a long life should be avoided by insurance agents.

The new year brings new opportunities, so here’s hoping that the good wins out and the world is made a little better.

Oh, and a happy 12th blogiversary to Steve Bates at the Yellow Doggerel Something. He may be ‘imprisoned’ in the health care system and forced to use texting to communicate, but he keeps posting.

Of course you got to try it out before it came to the US. Was it worth the wait, or just another waste of measured time.

It actually seems a bit silly to have a holiday based on officials of a an extinct political entity [Roman tribunes] taking office, but that is the only known significance of changing the year on January 1st. We should have stayed with the old system of changing the year at the Spring equinox which had a bit more weight to it.
