Explosives CAN be fun: Fireworks at the Sydney Harbor Bridge WHILE you may still be preparing your lunch, other regions in the World are celebrating the new year already, among which are Tonga, Samoa, Japan, the Philippines, eastern Russia, Australia and New Zealand, to name but a few.

So it’s hight time for you to shift into hight gear, get dressed, get your supper ready, get out the drinks and get seriously tipsy just in time to celebrate the demise of the past, exhausted and tired old year – and welcome the birth of a new, young, hopeful, energetic and – perhaps – better year for all mankind.

May all wars end, may all fools lean to understand and may the coming year prove, that hope CAN bring change.

I love you guys and chicks. Take good care of yourself in 2010 and, time and means allowing, take good care for one another, too.

Auld Lang Syne

Good luck, good love, good food and good wine to all you wonderful bloggers out there in the blogosphere (less Trolls!) from the big, bad Mogamboguru!

Happy New Year Gretel!

I just went cold turkey, although I must admit I take a peek every now and then; hard as it is, I no longer comment.

And the same to you Gretel! We hope that your “weaning” goes quickly! You will, I’m certain, find it painless! I did! 🙂

That was the worst turkey I’ve ever eaten. It was specially ordered but my husband was given the wrong bird when he went to pick it up and we didn’t notice that until just before stuffing it. It was basted, it said, with rosemary.

Ha! Basted? That bird had been given a rosemary bath , soaked in that instead of brine.

Bathed in rosemary? That bird has been eating rosemary…for months!

I am disappointed. What a lot of work, all for nothing…though the rest of the dinner was ok. And anyway people all ’round the world are starving so why don’t you just shut up, abby, and be grateful for what you have?

Oh, I’m so sorry, Abby! What a shame! Next time you cook one, get in touch. I may be able to help you! And by all means, skip the rosemary! Yuk! Sounds awful!

Turkey is one of the few things I can do well. It was the rosemary…may rosemary never touch my lips again. I had one bite, one, and that was hours ago and I can still taste it. It, rosemary, is supposed to be for succulence. Said the label. And I have to admit that as awful as the flavor was, the thing was really moist. But I’d rather eat a bird as dry as sand, without the rosemary, than ever again…

My husband says it’s time for me to bake the apple pie. I’m not ready, I’m gun-shy now after the fiasco with the turkey. With my luck, today, anyway, the apples will have been soaked in something even worse than rosemary, and the only thing I can think of that would be worse, is petrol.

Happy New Year, K! We have been missing you here! Most of us have had waaaaaay too much to drink already and the quality of the comments has taken a decidedly downward turn! LOL

I hope 2010 is a better year for you…for all of us! After 2009, we are due to have a good one!

All the best to you and yours! Hugs!

I’m not entirely sure I have a condom powerful enough to inoculate myself and anyone else in a 1/4 mile radius against the infection that that ~ahem~ woman has.

…or as we guys used to say to each other in high school when told about the ‘easy’ girls…..

Happy New Year to each of you, including your furry and/or human families.

2009 is, or will soon be, history. 2010 = clean slates; “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”; “let’s be careful out there”.

All the best in the new year, my friends. Be the change you seek, live the life you choose. You are all factories of ideas, memories and dreams…so keep the engine running and grab that ring when you pass it…
We all breathe for an instant, yet the trick is to live for a lifetime.
