New Year’s Eve is here… and I have had a great year…. I am looking forward to what 2012 has to offer me!

For our great excitement tonight… Redberad and I will be catching up on Sons of Anarchy and Californication- we are major animals! Buttercup is babysitting up the street so we will be on our own.

Steaks for dinner tonight and champagne at midnight….

Here is a collection of quotes I found about New Years that I wanted to share….

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.  A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.  ~Bill Vaughan
Many people look forward to the new year for a new start on old habits.  ~Unknown
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.  ~Benjamin Franklin
No one ever regarded the First of January with indifference.  It is that from which all date their time, and count upon what is left.  It is the nativity of our common Adam.  ~Charles Lamb

Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.  ~Hal Borland

The merry year is born Like the bright berry from the naked thorn. ~Hartley Coleridge

Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring, happy bells, across the snow: The year is going, let him go; Ring out the false, ring in the true. ~Alfred, Lord Tennyson

New Year’s Day:  Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions.  Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.  ~Mark Twain
The new year begins in a snow-storm of white vows.  ~George William Curtis

We will open the book.  Its pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.  ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.  ~Author Unknown
Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.  ~Oscar Wilde
Glory to God in highest heaven, Who unto man His Son hath given; While angels sing with tender mirth, A glad new year to all the earth. ~Martin Luther



So Rule #84 is simple… Be safe- enjoy your New Year’s celebration- focus on the positive!
