No wild parties for me tonight as I couldn't get a babysitter and we are expected to get 2-4 inches of snow. I'd rather not chance bad weather with potential drunk drivers thrown in the mix. So, I'll be watching Ryan Seacrest, drinking champagne at home tonight.
NPR did a little musical montage this morning from all the musicians that had passed away this year. The montage began with Dick Clark announcing American Bandstand and ended with him saying Happy New Year. I couldn't help but to get a little teary eyed. Will anyone else be missing Dick Clark as the ball drops tonight?
Happy New Year to all! Have fun and be safe!
