> saying goodbye to a year full of hurricanes, tsunamis

"Not enough money" to feed the hungry OR house the homeless, OR do much to alleviate the impending environmental holocaust, but

" Bei Raketen spart niemand " " das ist Kulturgut " [ NO-one to scale down on rockets ! Never mind the poisonous chemicals ! ]

KEEP DANCING ! Titanic is unsinkable

I watched the Ball drop in Time Square on TV as New York is an hour ahead of Central Time Zone then I watched the fireworks on TV here as 2012 marked her spot with a warm welcome to many.
May 2012 be the Best of the Best for everyone....!

It's great to see a worldwide celebration once a year and great to see Dick Clark. I can't imagine New Year's Eve without him.
