Happy New Year's Eve to all of my fellow non-religionists!

I made a plan.  It was that my sweetie come home and take a nap so that we can go party in a public place with at least a glass of alcohol -- hating champagne, that won't be our drink of choice.  The nap is done, time to dress and go.  I wonder if they will have mistletoe, the granter of mystical powers?

I live in the Dominican Republic and we have a growing refugee camp of Haitians across the street from us.  about a dozen a month ago, then they brought ina generator and a pair of speakers bigger than God and blast us out with their music every night, some in Spanish, some in Creole and some on English even.  They also dug a trench to a creek nearby and us it as a latrine, the smell wafts up to our windows!  Probably 40 people there now. The police assure us that it will be cleaned up soon.  But we got all the free music we needed over the Holiday season!

I'm pleased to read about your New Year's Eve Evenings. I hope that we all let reason have a bigger part in our lives this year.  

Michael, it sounds like you like the quiet life.  I've always liked bringing in the New Year.  When I didn't drink alcohol, which was for a good 30 years, I got Sparkly stuff they marketed for people like me and had that in fancy glasses with my children.

My sweetie would love it if I were as keen on Opera as he is, Loren!  Hanging out with friends sounds great, Pat!  We finally made plans to do so tomorrow night.  Yay!  

We did go out at from 11:30 p.m. till about 2 a.m. One of our favorite musicians in this area, H.B. Beverly was playing and we got to bring the new year in to his songs, after the ball dropped.  A waitress decided to play, and she was so beautiful that he let her use his guitar.  What a voice!  I had a Moscow Mule and a champagne.  I tried it and it was okay!  What a hangover I had, so I spent this morning drinking hot tea and water till I felt steady enough to start New Year's Day cleaning.

My wife and I went to Bravo Cucina for dinner (Veal Marsala – YUM!!!), then came home to watch TV.  PBS had a wonderful performance of Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals from Lincoln Center, which I followed with my own DVD of a gathering of the family Marsalis, particularly including Ellis, who was brilliant on piano.  We toasted the New Year with plum wine (a favorite of ours), watched an episode of Mythbusters and sacked out.

Works for me!
