Here Comes 2018

The year 2018 has arrived in Europe and is coming to North America. During this year we can expect the Winter Olympics, launch of NASA's Insight spacecraft to Mars and the World Cup of soccer. CNN has live video of celebrations as midnight strikes and the new year begins.

Indeed, she comes.

Cold as hell here in N.C. I'm not going anywhere tonight. 2018 will find me asleep in the warmth of my bed.

Be safe everyone, it's cold out there..

I want to wish a Happy New Year to Nullifidian.

Why?

First of all, he's a 1000 times more knowledgeable, and a 1000 times more wiser than me -- period.

Second, he fought the good fight during the 1972 presidential campaign, knocking on doors for George McGovern, who was also a WWII war hero.

Nulli may think I'm BS'ing him, but he would be wrong.

Happy New Year, Nulli! -- no reply required ~

"As the clock approaches midnight on Sunday, the New Year is set to bring freezing temperatures that may last for a couple of days. While there's plenty to do if you're willing to brave the cold for New Year's Eve, here's a good option for those who might opt to stay in:

The fourth annual Austin City Limits Hall of Fame show.

Taped Oct. 25 at ACL Live, this year's gala event honored new inductees Roy Orbison, Rosanne Cash and the Neville Brothers, with special guests including Elvis Costello, Neko Case, Ry Cooder, Brandi Carlile, Raul Malo, Trombone Shorty, Dr. John and host Chris Isaak. An hourlong program of highlights from that night will air at 10 p.m. on local PBS affiliate KLRU, and again at 11 p.m."

Looking forward to some sweet 2018 butthurt, which ironically, will closely resemble 2017's special offerings.

It's 3 degrees outside and it's wonderful.
