The last of 2012 must have tired everyone out, including me. The rain woke me up as well, but I missed the New Year's ball dropping in Times Square. Has anybody ever been up there? Times Square looks so beautiful on New Year's Eve, with everybody partying in cool clothes, and being friendly toward each other. The city lights make a beautiful backdrop while welcoming in the new year.

Now for the REAL Times Square: People move along quickly, and carefully avoid eye-contact with anyone. Homeless people in tattered clothes sit on sidewalks,
begging for change. Some of them are just "acting" and get quite a loot by the end of the day.
They are back at it the very next day, until policemen ask them to move on. The truly needy refuse offers to go to the shelters. The odor is rank from unwashed bodies and human waste. There is an occasional "lady of the night" advertising her services. Right down the street is Radio City Music Hall and the Waldorf, where well-dressed people go for entertainment. The "slum" and upscale New York exist side by side.
I am grateful for living in Kentucky, the absolute antithesis of city life. I haven't been back to the city since I moved here, and I certainly don't miss it. Happy New Year, folks. Be thankful for the beauty and solitude of country life.

You failed to mention the numerous rats that scurry along at night coming up out of the subways, the storefront hookers, the open display of sexual material, the inability of a male to walk along (even with his wife) without being propositioned, or the hell holes of the world called "Grand Central Station" or 42nd street, and runaway children laying in the doorways. You bet I am Thankful to not have to go there to work anymore, including Philadelphia and Chicago which are not quite as degenerate, but close.

Oh yes, I for one am very happy to be a hick from Kentucky! lol Big cities are okay to visit but I sure wouldn't want to live there!

Ohhh I am watching a report on NBC news channel, San Antonio teachers being trained to take down another person (shooter or whoever). Totally cool! LOL I sure wouldn't want one of those little teachers after me! lol I hope y'all get to see that report.:) We have some folks around here teaching self defense and marksmanship classes. I'm thinking about taking some classes. I've got too soft and out of shape in my old age. It would be fun for sure, to pay somebody to let me beat the crap out of them. LOL

Good afternoon bird threaders. Is everyone sleeping in late today or what? And who is the scrooge with all the mean icons over a simple HAPPY NEW YEAR. Jeeze, what a sad soul.

I was watching the New York festivities when I was kidnapped by my best friends to go see the fireworks. Car was warm and toasty, bundled up, got a glass of bubbly and really enjoyed it. Got home and had missed everyone on here so watched the Cops of Sturgis until I fell asleep.

I am not sure how I feel about teachers being armed. Might end up being a disaster. I think they should install metal detectors at the front door, hire off duty police like some do already. It is sad to even think about. What a day we live in now huh? Kid can't even go to school without worrying about their safety.

I hope you all have a great day. Gloomy day out, mild temps, but at least no rain, sleet, or snow.

Christ frequently consorted with beggars, prostitutes, orphaned children and when He returns He will likely pay a visit to the 'hell holes' first.

Santa brought me a new 20 gauge shotgun for Christmas, among with an assortment of other 'needful' accessories to go along with it. I might make some noise of my own out there if I hear trespassers or the likes getting too close for comfort.. For not having any neighbors close by, we've had some very strange things going on around here. Odd noises and occasional gunfire off in the hills, etc...
Hey Nope, did you fire that cannon off???:) I can't believe I have never heard of this tradition until this year. I think I have been too dang sheltered in my life! lol All that shooting and I have missed out on it.:( I was "in town" last night and heard SEVERAL gunshots going off. First I heard a few fireworks then I heard a BOOM and I told the sweetie that was not fireworks, it was a shotgun! He agreed. I said you have got to be kidding me and as I said that I hear more shots that were not a shotgun. He said nope, that sounded like high powered pistols. I said, "That crap has got to come down somewhere!!!" He suggested that it might he a good time to be IN the house. LOL The popo was turning onto our street as I was pulling out. lol
If the government ever does plan on taking our guns I think they better start somewhere else and put Kentucky way on down on their list of things to do. LOL

Didn't sleep in here. Woke up feeling like a million bucks!

Hope everyone had a great time last night no matter what you got into.

Today is very quiet outside for some reason. No birds singing and even the chickens are acting subdued. Wonder what's up with that? Anyone else seeing or noticing this around where you live?

Armed teachers would have avoided disasters like Columbine and Sandy Hook.
