5 on Friday – Goodbye 2020

The Rodney Dangerfield of years is over and not only can it get no respect, but folks are waving enthusiastically at its backside.

It may be a plane no longer called AF1 but at least it will get Trump out of town.

Put on your high heel boots and show him the door

Whatever the mode of transportation … Time for Trump to hit the road

Leading the Goodbye and Good Riddance parade with Green Day

Now Trump can just get out of the way so we can kick off a much better year.

Happy New Year

May 2021 be a year filled with joy and love

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet
For days of auld lang syne

We twa hae run about the braes
And pu’d the gowans fine
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit
Sin days of auld lang syne

We twa hae paidl’d i’ the burn
Frae morning sun till dine
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin days of auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet
For days of auld lang syne

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp
And surely I’ll be mine
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere
And gie’s a hand o’ thine
And we’ll tak a right gude-willy waught
For auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne

Dona Nobis Pacem 2020

In 2006 Mimi Lennox, mistress of Bloggingham Castle started a little project.  For one day, bloggers who followed her would speak with one voice:  Dona Nobis Pacem.  They would post globes with that simple message.  What started as a hope nine years ago has now spread to more than 200 countries and it can take days to visit even a percentage of all the people seeking just one goal in our time:  GRANT US PEACE


Above is the globe from 2015. Below a major favorite from several years:  Bear 339 & The Bear A Tones who were created both for a song of peace and a hope for all the endangered animals on the planet.
