    Here’s to a happy, healthy, sane 2016. (Did you hear that, GOP? Sane!)

    Happy New Year! 😄🕕🎉

    Let’s hope that in 12 months we can look back and call the year sweet 16.

    Blue, I guess it doesn’t hurt to ask, but asking for sanity in an election year is a pretty tall order. 😊 Happy New Year everyone.

    My favorite NY celebration even if it does happen at 4:00 AM every year: https://youtu.be/NBpdp4lAvgc

    Wow, I’ve lived in this neighborhood for 25 years. This is the quietest New year in those 25 years.
    A few fire works and one or two guns in the distance Used to be 30min of nonstop gun fire then sporadic gun fire for several hours.
    Don’t believe the nay sayers the world is getting better.
    Happy New year to everybody have a good year.

    unlike the fancy way this guy cooks it

    “call the year sweet 16”
    blue, good idea. maybe by employing positive thinking we can help it live up to expectations and its potential.

    Happy New Year to all you ‘mixers’.

    Hoping that 2016 is great for each of you.

    I learned a long time ago that the best time around here to hit the sack on New Year’s Eve is 2230-EST. The first round of fireworks are over and the ‘adults’ are getting soused. So this Ohlfahrt will be in a deep slumber that will last ’til morning by the time the actual magic hour arrives. Happy New Year y’all!


  14. blueINdallas says:

    W’jack – It was quiet here, too. No fireworks or gunfire. So far, no reports of problems with celebratory gunfire on the local news, either.

    Yes, a sweet 16, so far.

    PatD- I had never heard of good luck, New Year foods until I moved to TX. My ex-boyfriend’s family did the black-eyed pea thing.

    Today, I will have to harvest my bell peppers. It’s finally going to freeze tonight.

    Hey… Happy New Year everyone!
    Gonna spend part of the day watching hockey… the Winter Classic between my Boston Bruins and the hated Montreal Canadiens… go Bruins!


  16. Jamie says:

    Happy New Year all. We did our usual watch NYC at 9 pm and then hit the sack to be awakened by fireworks at midnight here. Rest of the weekend quiet … rest of the year, who knows?

    anything out of the webb camp yet? saw this online today

    from http://crooksandliars.com/2015/12/maybe-jim-webb-ran-wrong-primary
    In any event, if he does run as a third-party candidate for president (as Bloomberg Politics, a few days ago, said he might), he’s highly unlikely to draw voters from the Democratic nominee. The kinds of people who’d vote for him stopped voting Democratic in presidential elections many years ago, even though some are still registered as Democrats.
    I think he missed his chance. He should have run as a Republican.


    • Jamie says:

      He would have been a voice of sanity among the current clown car contingent. Unfortunately sanity in the early primaries is sadly lacking. It would have been fun to see Jim beat down Trump.


  18. 2016—— so far, so good…….

    from http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/02/middleeast/al-shabaab-video-trump/index.html
    CNN)—An al Qaeda affiliate has apparently released a new recruitment video, telling Muslims in America that the country has a long history of racism and discrimination and will turn on its Muslim community.
    The video purportedly by Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab uses historic civil rights era footage of firebrand Malcolm X and audio of 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump to label the United States a racist society.

    now, where did they get that idea? the Donnie will no doubt say it’s all Hillary’s fault.
    however, last night on newshour at http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/shields-and-gerson-on-the-biggest-political-moments-of-2015/
    MICHAEL GERSON: ….And the moment, though, that I think is the most important is the leading Republican candidate referring to the Japanese internment, this historical example, in December as a positive example in the context of the war on terror.
    MICHAEL GERSON: It is the — for me, personally, that was a really terrible moment in modern Republican history. And, you know, I think it’s going to have consequences going forward.

    renee, heads up (duh, as if you didn’t already know)
    from http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jan/02/hillary-clinton-campaign-new-hampshire-bill-clinton-secret-weapon
    …“the comeback kid” will return to the stump in New Hampshire on Monday.
    “His proper role in, and impact on, his wife’s candidacy is unsettled and unclear,” New York Times columnist Frank Bruni wrote last week. “He remains both wildly charismatic and maddeningly undisciplined. He connotes both prosperous times and cynical scheming.”
    Now set to be unleashed, Bill’s magnetism and oratory could be the ultimate campaign weapon. He often ranks as the most popular living US president in surveys and his speech at the 2012 Democratic convention gave a major boost to Obama’s re-election campaign. But those very same qualities could also overshadow the former first lady, whom some regard as lacking a personable and relatable demeanor.
    Furthermore, Bill can be a loose cannon, prone to losing his temper and the kind of gaffes that hindered rather than helped in 2008. And this time the celebrated Clinton machine faces a challenge that might not quite compute, a man who describes himself as their “worst nightmare”: Donald Trump.
    Even as Bill holds a rally in Nashua, New Hampshire, on Monday, Trump will be campaigning 20 miles away in Lowell.
