Hi johnnyFive and rezzeJ and of course veen - all of you out in your time zones, although I think I'm in the same place as j5. Sorry veen, I haven't posted any new year's meditations and reflections. I went on hubski tonight because I was thinking of donating some $$ and I noticed that the little orange bar in the top right corner has filled up. AWESOME!! maybe there's a recent post where everyone decided to put in $5. I have been travelling so haven't checked in for a few days.

Yes, I just got back from Times Square, NYC. I left Manhattan around 1:00 p.m. and headed to EWR, got an earlier seat on my flight to Toronto. Landed in YTZ around 6:00, a shuttle, a bus, and some walking and I'm back home.

It's so cold in Canada that the Calgary Zoo have brought their PENGUINS in.

While I was walking from 37th and Park to Penn Station earlier, barriers were going up, streets were closing, and security was ramping up. I tuned in briefly to the live stream from Times Square and the reportage was spectacularly boring (to me), but I imagine it would be fun to be there freezing.

There's a live feed from the Key West new year's eve party.

Entertainer Sushi has climbed into a giant shoe high up on a balcony. At midnight the shoe drops.

No need to apologise! Life needs living.

Calgary is -28ºC now. I think the worst I had when I was there was -24º? Really friggin' cold if you ask me. Key West probably fares better...

They promised a big party. Looks like they are having one.

Hey, sorry I missed you on IRC...I had originally thought my wife was going to bed, but we decided to stay up to watch Best of the Worst instead.

Have a happy near year!
