Murf, there was allways a New Years count down in Chicago for as long as I can remember. That's the one I watched, because it's in the same state as I'm in. The Times square party was on one of the local chanels at 11:00 am, but they prempted it when it was time for the local New Year count down. That's fine with me. As I said, I only watch that party on tv long enough to ring in the New Year. After the New Year is rung in, I light off my fire crackers, call my people, and burn the old calender, I go back to more interesting programming, or I put on some music and party hearty. (without drinking, of course) Next year my niece and her little one may be joining me, which would be fun, but I hope that if she does, she will take me up on the offer of using my guest room, because we get a lot of drunks out on New Years Eve.
Nevermore, I would love to check out that video and will do so when I'm home, and can do it. The video viewing soft wear on my computer at work is not functioning properly, so I have to wait until I'm home, but I will. I do love motorcycle shows, and I did use to ride a snow mobile years ago. I rented one back in the Winter of 87. We had an unusualy heavy local snow storm. I was living in Morris at the time, and the Community College where I work was closed, so I rented a snow mobile. It was a real blast. Swore I would get my own some day, but as you all may know, there's no such day as "some day." Besides, I get a lot more oportunties to ride my motorcycle then I would to ride a snow mobile. Right now, if I owned a snowmobile, I would be pretty disappointed.
