Happy New Year

Heading to New Jersey today for a prolonged New Years celebration at my Mysterious Sister-In-Law's.  Looking forward to it because we all had to leave early last Sunday due to the snow and I didn't get a chance to dig into a number of interesting beers that Jim brought over.  We were going to watch the Jets and Giants games and drink them up but, alas, didn't get to them.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate a bit more this time.

So, I will bid you a fond adieu untl 2011 and wish you all:

I Would Rather Be In Mexico

It is one thing to be in Mexico watching the weather reports from New York showing blizzard-like conditions.  It is quite another to be in New York when there is a blizzard.  I couldn't even make it to the deli to get a paper this morning, and the deli is only a block away.

I am going to have a second cup of coffee while I listen to Brian Wilson's great album "Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin."  Then I will try for the deli again and take a few pictures, which I will post.

The Jets lost, but managed to back themselves into the playoffs, so go Jets.  The Giants, well, they just backed into a meat-grinder.  I think Eli realizes he can never catch Brett in number of games played but he is certainly making an effort to catch him in the interception department.  He threw four yesterday and leads the league with 24 so far this year.

All This, And No Newspapers!!!

And no mail either. So much for "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds"
