Happy New Year’s Eve to all of our blog family. We just returned from our long 12 hour drive from Chicago. We will be at home tonight and I will be toasting to everyone on our extended blog family.

Tonight Leslie and I will share our traditional bottle of Schramsberg Sparkling wine. This is my wedding anniversary. Sixteen years ago, Leslie and I eloped on New Year’s Eve after eight years years of dating. (There is an ongoing dispute over calculating the event, I insist that this is our 24th anniversary but Leslie insists on not counting the eight years of dating). We always celebrate with a bottle of J. Schrams. This was the bottle I bought after we got hitched at Alexandria City Hall. I used my house school ring.

While we are not holding our annual party for 200 on New Years (because we were in Chicago for the Bears game), we will make our traditional soup: The Bowl of the Wife of Kit Carson Soup.

Everyone drive carefully and have fun. I will be giving a toast to our entire blog family tonight (and, of course, my marriage).

  1. It’s not a happy new years eve for all the black males in Connecticut that are locked up in jail for crimes that WE haven’t committed…

  2. Judge Sonia Sotomayor is pushing the button in Times Square to start the ball drop. I’m no stick in the mud, and I like Supremes coming out of their bubble, but this seems a bit beneath a Supreme. Hopefully she has the good sense to not be interviewed by Kathy Griffin. And, I love Kathy and her bawdiness.

  3. Happy (and Safe!) New Year’s, Blog Peoples!

    Remember, friends don’t let friends drive drunk. Or blog drunk. Or call up old boy/girlfriends drunk. Or get married by Elvis impersonators drunk.

    You get the idea.

  4. Happy New Year to all the cool bloggers and commenters here. I don’t say much, but I read everyday. Rock On through 2014!!!

  5. Happy New Year to you…. If this one doesn’t work out for a party…. You have the Chinese New Year on January 31….. Then again the Summer Equniox…..

    Just remember the Australians are ahead of us…… Party down…..
