Happy Hogmanay to everyone regardless of age, sex, religion, mothers maiden name, sports team followed, favourite breakfast cereal and hopes for the future. As Big Rab , Irn Bru advert connoisseur may say "Lang May Yer Lum Reek" or to put it in another way a Scottish variety of good luck, favoured by my dad. "May a moose ne'er leave yer meal poke wi' a tear in its een."
Still getting over an Abba special on television tonight before the fireworks from Sydney. Those guys are in their sixties or close to it now. They were more popular in Australia than the Beatles. What gives?
Off to bed now. We'll leave the celebrating to the others. The nice man on the television recommended that we turn on the washing machine to calm our dog during fireworks. The first one of the evening just went off. Better go and do that.
