I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Round and Round she goes

Happy New Years Eve!!  The weather outside is overcast and drizzly.  Looks like much of the same for this afternoon.  I work, so it doesn't bother me.  I don't know how late the store's open, but I can tell you, there will be customers.  Not a lot.  I work tomorrow as well, though I'm not scheduled to start until 2 PM.  I think that's about when the games start on TV, though they may start earlier.  Business will be light.  Not everybody boozes away New Years Eve.

I will not stay up to ring in the New Year.  If I wanted to watch fireworks, I could turn on the BBC, they're going to be live from Sydney shortly.  Honestly, it's just another new year following another old year, round and round they go.

As I was prepping my breakfast this morning, I made an interesting discovery:  the dogs like bananas.

Barbara Walters died.  She took the brunt edge of a lot of humor early in her career, being the first woman in national broadcast news to be an anchor.  SNL called her Baba Wawa.  I feel bad about that now.  Without her we would have no Rachel Maddow.

That pro-Nazi pope died, too.  No loss.

Finally, I thought I'd prep you for the new year with a little sea shanty.  Play this loud.  It is freaking awesome!



  1. Wait, so your store is open on New Year's Day???? My goodness, I'd forgotten what the US was like! You might be lucky and find a baker's open tomorrow morning but that's it here! Happy New Year Dave!

    1. This is American Capitalism - there are only 2 days of the year on which we are actually closed: Christmas Day, and Thanksgiving Day. And this new year is going to be great!!

  2. Happy New Year Dave!!!! Will you have a PA Dutch dinner of Pork and Sauerkraut tomorrow? I got a huge piece of meat this year.

    I was never a fan of Walters, or the Pope. And they both went the same day.

    1. A huge piece of meat, eh? 😎😎😎 No pork for me, I work tomorrow.
