To all blogsters at Flares and to all our friends and commenters throughout the ether.

I predict "interesting times" in the Chinese sense for the coming year, but I also have a feeling that in general, optimism will be rewarded.

Why? I haven't the slightest idea, but New Years' champagne, black-eyed peas, and herring may have something to do with it.

A toast to all!!!

Hmmm. Champers, black eyed peas, and herring.

Because nothing worse could happen?

Happy New Yedar to you too. I agree, by the way, with your optimism.

I paid for it in the morning.

It is poached eggs for brunch and no bloodys for me while watching the games.

Yikes! I sure hope you had some akvavit to wash down the herring!

Best wishes to all for a happy and healthy New Year.
