Happy New Year

New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar's year count is incremented. In many cultures, the event is celebrated in some manner. The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today in worldwide use, falls on 1 January (New Year's Day), as was the case with the Roman calendar. There are numerous calendars that remain in regional use that calculate the New Year differently. Source: Wikipedia

There are all kinds of superstitions on how to start the new year. Eating black eyed peas, cabbage, donuts and a laundry list of other things. I want my year to be filled with laughter so that's what I'm posting about today. This video had me laughing so hard I was crying.

I hope your year is filled with good health, happiness, laughter and prosperity.

  3. Laundry IS on my list, but I doubt that's lucky... just necessary!

    I use to absolutely LOVE those roundabout things at the playground. AI forget what it's called, but I always loved it.

    I wish you and Zane a blessed 2011, Sandee, in every department! Big hugs :]

  5. I maybe never ate any black eyed peas, but I listened to the band...

    The video sure had the desired effect on me, people really do need to laugh more and see the funny side of life. It seems adults are worse than kids for fooling around and making an ass of themselves and long my it continue....

    Happy New year and I hope it is a great year for you and your family and keep on making us laugh...

  6. Now we know why some of this equipment has disappeared from the playground. It's too dangerous for the adults to be using.

  11. We seem to laugh at the same things. Go figure.

    I will be eating black-eyed peas today, and I am doing laundry. Laundry is a fact of life.

    And I am looking forward to collecting REAL hugs...NEXT MONTH. Woohoo!!! I like the sound of that. Sending cyber ones for now...

  13. Some of those must've hurt. Adults on children's playground equipment is a sure-fire recipe for disaster. And lots of laughs too
