Happy New Year 2009!!!
The big question at midnight after the New Years kiss(es) is what is your New Years resolution? The usual that get broken within 3 hours are losing weight, being a better father, better mother, work harder, not work so hard, visit my mother in the nursing home more often, drink less, take my medicine, go to the doctor and so on and so on.
Bigger Picture Hopes and Dreams
We will all typically have so of the same grandiose hopes and dreams for the new year. Make more money, world peace, better stock market, home prices stabilizing, our new president working out as we hoped for some and better than we expect for others, tolerance among different ethnicity's and religions, a government that actually gets things accomplished as opposed to posturing for their own political expediency, safer streets, happy children and any number of other things that I forgot.

English rendition of the Robert Burns poem
Should old acquaintance be forgot,and never brought to mind ?Should old acquaintance be forgot,and old times since ?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !And surely I’ll buy mine !And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,for auld lang syne.
We two have run about the slopes,and picked the daisies fine ;But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,since auld lang syne.
We two have paddled in the stream,from morning sun till dine† ;But seas between us broad have roaredsince auld lang syne.
And there’s a hand my trusty friend !And give us a hand o’ thine !And we’ll take a right good-will draught,for auld lang syne.
