Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all of you out there.

2008 has been a rough year for most folks, and 2009 promises to be even more challenging. I don't know what to offer except for my prayers that all of you and yours are kept safe, warm and fed as the winds of "change" buffet all of us in this storm.

I'm going to try and get some productive posts going such as salvaging LED brake lights from wrecked cars and using them to construct emergency lighting here in the coming year.

In the mean time, the Jukebox is going to be filled for today with different versions of Auld Lang Syne.

BB King for you blues lovers. DJ Tool for you Techno/House fans. Glenn Miller for the Big Band crowd. A bootleg Jimi Hendrix from the Filmore in 1970. Manheim Steamroller. Country Chorale for the country people. A kind of a Bluegrass piece from The Lonesome Travelers (kinda reminds me of the pickers that traveled with Jerry Reed). Nicky Spence for the traditionalists. Celtic Lore's rendition, and finally a metal version from Christmas At The Devil's House.

Best Wishes for a Happy New Year.

Hey, Ken...hope all is well with you and your kin. Happy New Year to you!

Molly, greetings to our friends down in Australia. You were one of the first to transition into 2009. I like your blog! The Loofah plant is something I hadn't thought of. I'll have to see if it will grow here. Happy New Year to you!

Hi Hermit Jim! Well, I was looking hard for a "parrot head" version of Auld Lang Syne, but maybe Jimmy Buffet hasn't done a version of it. Happy New Year to you as well!
