Happy 2006 Everyone!!!

Wishing everyone blessings for the new year.

I'll leave you with some cyber toasts, poems and quotes, etc...

I used to know a clever toast
But now I cannot think it
So fill your glass to anything
And damn your souls, I'll drink it!
Life, alas Is very drear
Up with the glass
Down with the beer!

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
-- Lord Tennyson

I do think New Year's resolutions can't technically be expected to begin on New Year's Day, don't you? Since, because it's an extension of New Year's Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also dieting on New Year's Day isn't a good idea as you can't eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second.
-- Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones's Diary

    Loverly, E! You find the most fitting quotes to post.

    January 2nd it is. Time to jump into whatever we have planned.

    Wishing you and yours a happy, safe New Year.

    And tell the headache to get lost or I'll bite it.
