6.5 hours til Midnight here in SE Michigan. We're preparing for my husband's annual big Bash... most of the cooking, except last minute stuff, is done, so it's just stalling time until it's time to cook the pasta and ham.

and I made - just barely - my goal of 250 books this year.
Congrats on the books. My cat suggests a nap.

Still almost 8 hours to go from overcast Colorado. However, still celebrating the Broncos victory yesterday!

2013 is 15 minutes old in Sweden.
I started reading a book 11.30 pm because it's too much fireworks going on to be able to sleep. Turned out the book is a page-turned so sleep may be cancelled anyway!

Happy New Year!!

We've got a little more time to spend with 2012 here. I'm trying not to show it how impatient I am for it to leave!!!

The Space Needle looks like it's going to take off. Actually, it would be pretty cool if the saucer section flew off and landed in Elliott Bay.

Here's a pic of the Sydney Harbour Bridge around midnight:


Fancy dedicating the fireworks to Kylie Minogue.
See those lips, they are supposed to represent Kylie.

It made it to 40 out here and the AC packed it in.

Just cooled off with the lawn sprinkler. The plants are thankful as am I.

That looks much better than Seattle's lame show.

40C... wow, that's a bit warm. Maybe we should switch for a bit. It's -1C here.

Golly!!! We had about 33, but the wind is SW, so it's a consolation of sorts .... well better than a Westerly anyway.

Oh yep, what a joke re Minogue. I hope she contributed to some of the cost somewhere along the line.

Tubemonkey, Sydney spends quite some millions on the Fireworks display, and always uses the Bridge as a backdrop.

The powers that be say that as our New Year hits the world press while the rest are still on hours of countdown to come, that it serves as a Tourism brochure!!!!

Yeah right

Irrespective, I like the fact that we do it for ourselves - not because of some bullo Tourism promo.

Yeah, Sydney goes all out and they do it twice. Once for the kids at 9 and then at midnight.
The fireworks go for about 15 minutes. This video is almost 5 hrs long so scrub forward to 4:20 for the start. The best bit is at about 4:30.

Better close up. Same time code.

18 hours into the new year, but it doesn't feel any different. Where did I go wrong?

Had a quiet New Year's here. I attended a party held by my church and napped through the stroke of 12. I've been dealing with a cold for the last few weeks so staying in was best with how cold it is here.
