Happy New Years Folks!

I hope that everyone had a nice and safe New Year's Eve. Mine was excellent. Craig and family came over for Appletinis ( heavy on the tini ). It is always great fun to watch the kids playing, talk politics and sip a cocktail that is more like a Jolly Rancher than a drink. Craig forgot one of his kids, so if anyone sees him...

The point is that it is nice to ring the new year in with family and friends. Though Jan 31 is a man made 'switch', it is nice to have a starting point. What did I start the New Year with? Why, I cranked this up:

Instant karmas gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon youre gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin to do
Its up to you, yeah you

Instant karmas gonna get you
Gonna look you right in the face
Better get yourself together darlin
Join the human race
How in the world you gonna see
Laughin at fools like me
Who in the hell dyou think you are
A super star
Well, right you are

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Evryone come on

Instant karmas gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognize your brothers
Evryone you meet
Why in the world are we here
Surely not to live in pain and fear
Why on earth are you there
When youre evrywhere
Come and get your share

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
Come on and on and on on on
Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
On and on and on on and on

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun

January 31? Or December 31? Maybe one too many -tinis for you, Shane!

Yeah, John Lennon got his “instant karma” when he answered the door. I just wish Yoko Ono had been standing next to him...

Anonymous,

This isn't the time or place for that. I hope that you have a happier year this year than in the past and perhaps the bitterness will fade.
