I know you know the song—at least some of it, anyway, if you’re like me—but what do you know of its origins?  I didn’t know much.  Peggy Noonan’s piece is educational.

New Year’s Eve feels a little more arbitrary to me every year.  Any pressure to be doing something fabulous has been totally absent for years.  We’re spending some inside time with friends tonight.  Odds are excellent than when the new year actually arrives, I’ll be experiencing that state of greatly reduced consciousness, suspended sensory activity, and near-total inactivity of voluntary muscles known as “sleep.”  Hello, middle age.

If you’re going out, please be safe.

  1. Speaking as someone who’s never gotten the whole party vibe, I will probably be on the same wavelength come the new year. So I’ll say it now: Happy New Year to your house from ours.

  2. Happy New Year, kemtee!

  3. And here I thought it was by Dan Fogelberg about beer and an ex-girlfriend…

    Hate that song.

    Happy 2011 brother. I’m on the plus side for 2010 so I think I can get away with more next year.

  4. Happy New Year Bo. May the coming year be filled with much love and laughter for you and your family.

  5. Happy New Year, BamaDan!

    Happy New Year, Mirth! I wish the same for you and yours!
