Let's Bring In A Safe And Prosperous 2008 !

This is it ! 2007 will make its exit tonight and a new year will begin. If you watch the TV coverage at the Times Square party in New York City, look for me in the crowd. I won't be there, but it will keep you busy. I'm going to a private party this evening with some good friends from AREA 51, which for the most part should be a laid back affair. Of course, knowing our group, one really never knows for sure. But this particular evening is definitely not a night to be competing with those who normally don't drink and so we concede the evening and the highways to them.

One of the reasons you'll never see me at a Times Square new year's party is that, in order to find a decent spot to observe the festivities, one must arrive early. That considered, arriving at 6-7 p.m. to obtain said spot, the question of restrooms arise. As a male, I'm sure I could figure a way to find a suitable pole or corner to resolve any problems. If you happen to be female, I have no idea how you would resolve the problem. The females that I know wouldn't last thirty minutes !

Consequently, the area becomes a large outhouse and combined with some of the element that I've seen at those parties on television, I'm quite content to watch the affair on television. Nevertheless, here's a shot of the Waterford Crystal ball that was used in last years party. Kinda makes you wanna pee, doesn't it?

                     

The Pictures: Highway Robbery ! Odds and ends from this year's pics along with a few I pilfered from other journals and some that you actually sent me at my normal discounted rate. I'm sure some of you will recognize your own Mona Lisa's. There's blatant and cryptic hellos and messages as per my wont and.... you know who you are !

This Date In History: 1775; The During the first phase of the American Revolution under generals Benedict Arnold and Richard Montgomery are defeated by the British defenders of the city of Quebec in Canada. 1879; Thomas Edison first publicly demonstrates the electric light bulb. 1890; New York's Ellis Island opens to all immigrants to the United States. 1946; U.S. President Harry Truman officially announces the end of World War II.

Birthdays: Henry Matisse, French artist (1869),  George Marshall, American military commander (1937), Anthony Hopkins, British actor Ben Kingsley, British actor (1943).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: I ran this joke in the past and I liked it so much that it's back for an encore.

A father watched his young daughter playing in the garden in their Wyoming ranch. He smiled as he reflected on how sweet  and pure his little girl was.
 
He thought about her seeing the wonders of nature through such innocent eyes. Suddenly, she just stopped and stared at the ground. He went over to her to see what work of God had captured her attention. He noticed she was looking at two spiders mating.
 
She asked,"Daddy,what are those two spiders doing?" Her father replied, "They're mating." The Little girl said, "What do you call the spider on top?" The father answered, "That's a Daddy Longlegs."
 
"So,the other one is a Mommy Longlegs?",the little girl asked. As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question, he replied "No dear. Both of them are Daddy Longlegs."
 
The little girl, looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then took her foot and stomped them flat and said, "Well, we're not having any of that Brokeback-Mountain shit in our garden".
 
Jimmy's Big Fight

One night, after a long evening of partying and drinking, Jimmy departed AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe, as usual. On his way home he spotted a nun walking down the road. After looking at her twice, he ran over and tackled her, then proceeded to beat the living snot out of her.

Some people passing by  spotted this and called the police. As the police were pulling him away in handcuffs, he looked back and said: "Awww shucks, Batman, I thought you'd be tougher than that."

                      

That's it for today my little champagne drinkers. Have a safe and happy New Year and more tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !
