After working on it for 3 years, I resolved that if I could get the corporate computers to come up and operate properly at Y2K, I would never ever make another New Year's resolution and I have not now for the past 13 years and it won't change.

Hey Anne, I'm proud for you. Since you asked, I've had this (#*&!!) bike on the back deck for several years and still despise it,....ya peddle and peddle and go nowhere. But, it appears I'd better get over it and go back to using it. Also, I've heard of a group in Ripley, MS that get together and play dulcimers at the library that welcome new people. I messed with one once but don't own one but that could be cured! Still, that's about 55 miles from me ....just don't know. But for the new year, that's two things that sound invite'n!
And a Happy New Year's wish to everybody. I hope that life is fair to you for another year.
Solution.. get a bike with wheels and get it off the deck and ride it for 55 miles to play the dulcimer. hehehe

I never could understand why people would go to the gym, then complain when they could not park at the front door of Walmart.

I'll come teach you how to play the dulcimer. We will start with the beginners classic "Boil that cabbage down "

boiled cabbage.... isn't that a traditional meal for bringing good luck on New Year's Day ? or was that St. Patrick's Day with corned beef ?

Cabbage and black eyes peas
That's what the Cajuns taught me.

Birds... I had 1000s of them pecking around on the homestead lawn yesterday. In my numerous years, I have never seen anything like that. I have seen them fly over and alight in the trees around dusk, but these spent all day on the ground and if a few 100 had died it would not have even been a drop in the bucket. Strange indeed. and I had no John Barley Corn either. LOL
Hmmmm. I think that was the case over by Paducah. My BIL. Said there were millions that settled in and wouldn't move on. Nasty. Disease promoting. And human health is more important. No doubt . If they did indeed water down the birds with soapy water to, uh, lessen their numbers, well, I don't blame them. Coyotes in Wyoming are a big problem too. Several years ago counties would have a one day hunt to clear out this serious threat to livestock and people. Various prizes/awards were given out. Technically, it was a community coming together to ensure the safety of their livelihood. I still think it is a necessary task just livened up by prizes. Please understand, I hate like everything that the bird/coyote population was out of control. But the safety of our food sources and of our population is most important.

Me thinks, dear AW, you protest too much about not befriending John Barleycorn. Especially after reading all of last evenings posts. Hmmmm...

Maybe you can set that bike in front of a western show and peddle away. Lol.
The dulcimer group intrigues me. My better half has one sitting in a case here at the house. At the present time there is a dulcimer group meeting at that little country church 1/2 mile from the house. I'd like for him to join in and maybe when he moves back home he will....🎶

I like making up a pot of Hoppin John Soup which is made with bacon, sausage, rice and black eyed peas. Cabbage is a must and I like hot buttered cornbread with it also. That'll be New Years lunch and dinner.😊

Oh I am not protesting at all about befriending John BarleyCorn. I just see no reason to get barley to put into soups when a beer would supply an ample dosage of healhty barley. Now Ol' Who Shot John in the hard stuff is not on my agenda LOL

Me thinks that some corned beef and cabbage with a grog of beer would be an appropriate New Year's feast based on my Irish heritage. Top of the Year to you, Lassie.

My revised New Year's Day meal... a camp stew recipe: 4 small potatoes, 4 tomatoes or a can of tomato sauce, 1/2 head of cabbage, small can of whole kernel corn, 1 pound or more of smoked sausage cut into short lengths, a teaspoon of chili powder, add water and a 1/2 of a beer and bring to a boil, then simmer until cabbage and potatoes are throughly cooked. Salt to taste. Drink the other half of the beer plus one more.

Dark beer and pork ribs are heavenly. Hehehe. I place mine in a dutch oven with the beer and a few lovely spices. After several hours I commence to do a light glaze with ol Jack Daniel's number 7. We're having cabbage rolls here as well as homemade sourdough rolls;)
Happy New Year's eve to you and Dog:)

Just finished making our New Year's Day meal..the Hoppin John soup and
if I do say so myself, it will be an excellent soup de jour served with piping hot cornbread. We've already finished off a couple bowls each for tasting purposes only. Lol

Just wanted to pop in and wish all of you a very Happy New Year! I've got a small split of Austi in the fridge and earlier today I made a small plate of different cheeses and fruits. Also have some smoked salmon dip and a cheese ball all ready to snack on later. I think I just might make it till 12:00, haha!!!

Tomorrows dinner is going to be a slow roasted pork roast with home made gravy, fried cabbage and smashed taters, along with the usual New Years Eve pot of black eye peas and hot cornbread made in one of my grandmas cast iron skillets.. I'll have enough leftovers to last for days and still freeze some back for another time.

And God bless you, AW! I was dreading having to channel surf tonight in avoidance of Miss "Hot Mess" Cyrus. New Years Eve has never been the same without Dick Clark. But now I can watch Twilight Zone until the minute the ball drops and I won't have to endure a "Hot Mess"!! Thanks to you, I just found the Twilight marathon on the SyFy channel...This one that just went off, "Time Enough At Last", has always been one of my favorites!!

I also love the episode where the old lady living in a secluded farm house finds the space ship in her home and goes nuts trying to destroy it. That one is called "The Invaders" and JUST happens to come on at 10:30!!! I'm so happy I popped in here!!! I scanned through as soon as I found what channel this was on and low and behold if it wasn't listed!!!

Happy happy happy!!!
And Happy New Year to you all.
God bless!!!
Talk to you all next year!!!

While Twilight Zone was on the tv, I slept though the last couple episodes and woke up in time for one last 2013 potty trip and to wish everyone a Blessed and Happy 2014 which will be here in 6 more minutes. (and then I can make the first 2014 potty trip... what a way to celebrate LOL)

I was told many years ago that what you're doing at midnight on New Years Eve is a precursor to what you will be doing for the New Year.

One year I was at a youth function at church and apparently my wristwatch was off by a few minutes. I heard everyone in the community room start and finish the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, while I was sitting on the toilet peeing......

I've never spent midnight of New Years Eve on the toilet again...

'Nuff said.

Happy 2014 everyone!
