I made it until about 9:00 PM last night before falling to sleep. I was trying to watch 2 ball games.

But bright and early this morning I watched some of the celebrations on the news.

Now to remember to write "2007". Happy

new year's eve special' w/GK and his "guy's all-star shoe band" at grand old opry on pbs. recommend it.

we flipped to the ball drop in times square, counted down, hugs & kisses, sparkling cider toast and quickly back to nashville.

when I watch the 1m+ crowd, I am so glad I am anywhere but there. even when I was young, before modern day 'concerns', the thought of standing sober(all I do now) for hours was unappealing to put it mildly. now I wonder "where do they go to the bathroom?". ah youth, why is it reserved for the young? I think I will count my blessings instead of questioning existence. it is a day to be content.

nyc sanitation crews earn their holiday pay. yuk!

He's spamming the board with politically-oriented posts as we speak. Maybe his calendar has broken.

dont worry soon he won't remember

what he is posting. maybe he overlooked cnet's new policy statement. be kind to him.

anyway josh, put on your specs(or increase the text size) that is my morning ritual. that option was a nice feature in the opera browser, I use fx2.0 most times.

go back and notice the: <g> means 'grin' I use that instead of the smiley things. LOL and LOLAK when I was growing up meant 'lots of love' and 'lots of love and kisses'. don't use those either. I do grin when I see them used by others but in a loving way.

by WOODS-HICK / January 1, 2007 12:18 AM PST

( gotta love the modern world ) no sunshine here today. mild and drizzly instead. I miss the snow and cold (50 degrees here in the hills) but I am not sure I mean it. rain on my snow shovel ain't so bad.

humorous thought
by James Denison / January 1, 2007 4:56 AM PST

We were watching the parade and one Mexican school came on, children all
in white, and playing/singing "La Bamba". I was laughing at the obvious
choice of the best known Latino song by all us Gringos here in the US and
them choosing to play that one. I was wondering how many of them were visiting
or being visited by family on this side of the border too. I think the announcer
said the band numbered over a hundred.

Anyone watch **** Clark?
by James Denison / January 1, 2007 5:00 AM PST
In reply to: humorous thought

For a moment I wondered if he was drunk, but then recalled he'd had a stroke
some months back. For a stroke victim he seemed very aware of what was going on,
did good commentary, and the only obvious effect was the slurred speech. I think
that was his son doing the show with him. We stayed on that channel and I
think the young man said something about helping his dad, refering to ****.

yep, for the ball drop
by WOODS-HICK / January 1, 2007 5:15 AM PST

I think his wife was with him. do not know about the son. we had the sound off much of the time.

he appeared in better health than last year, after his long recovery. I agree he seemed very 'with it' and his speech was improved since last year too.

my grandmother, died in '63 at 78yrs old, loved **** clark. I would come home from school and she would be watching american bandstand, tapping her toes and staring at him like a lovestruck bobby-soxer.

one of his monikers was 'world's oldest teenager' I think, the ball drop with clark is still our tradition

Didn't see **** Clark
by John Robie / January 1, 2007 5:48 AM PST

as was watching the mostly all night TV showing of high priced cars being auctioned in Scotsdale (Phoenix). I did turn to the channel showing the **** Clark Bandstand after (the NY) midnight ball lowering.
**** Clark was not 'on' announcing the bands. I turned to another channel after watching "RAP" performances/music twice in a row. Something I think is ridiculous with no talent, just any untalented guy/gal can mouth off if memorizing words put together in some sort of rhyme.

Not his son, James -- Ryan Seacrest of "American idol."

Unless, of course, there's a relationship we don't know about! Wink

OK. I was still trying to figure out that comment the younger man had made,
it seemed he was addressing **** Clark as if he was his father. I wonder if
there's a transcript of that? Probably not, but now curious as why I thought that.
It was shortly before some older woman came on stage and gave him a kiss. Please don't
tell me that wasn't his wife either??

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
