Nope. Was warm and cuddled up in my recliner with the dogs. Drifted off and woke up in time to see the ball drop and Mariah freezing her h**ters off. Then back to sleep. Up now reading CD. Happy New Year to all!

I've never been one to venture out on NYE, unless it was hosted at a hotel I was staying at for the night. This year, I went to bed early, as I am spending New Year's Day at CITI Field attending the NHL Winter Classic.

If you do go out how late will it be when you get home?
Happy New Year to all CD friends. Let's hope we find peace and good health and good friends in 2018.
The road risk is overstated. Cops are out in force and perceived to be so. The cold is a different story. We went with my sister-in-law and her two children (in from the Coast) to a Chinese restaurant about eight miles away. Aside from getting a bit cold (it was 10 at the time) getting into and out of the car it really wasn't bad. Well, the restaurant's restroom was poorly heated for some reason but that's another story).

Posted 12:14. Fifteen minutes after the stroke of midnight. At least you celebrated the New Years amongst your dearest computer/internet friends.

Haven't gone out of New Year's Eve in many a year. Wife and I used to celebrate just fine right here at home and get to bed by about 10:00. Just another day!

It's been a long time since I cared about parties and celebrating New Years.

These days, watch some TV and off to bed with the cats before midnight.

New Year's Day is more important in my opinion. Fresh start in life.

Just wish it would warm up. I'm really tired of this below zero stuff.

More like people who have gone to the prom for 50 plus years and would rather enjoy their evening in their own way.

It never was my thing even in my younger years. Enjoyed a couple of movies last night and in bed by 11:30.

Happy New Year!

There were some fireworks here at 9PM, midnight on East Coast. Then I heard some pops at midnight here when I was sleeping.

Just heard on radio and I wondered about this insanity of the NY ball drop and the thousands standing there for hrs waiting for this....this year it was 10 degrees and I wondered how the heck do people relieve themselves being out there all those hours...well on the radio there was talk about people using adult diapers during those hours... I was Never that nuts ...

And then there are the hoards of people camped out overnight for Rose parade...adult diapers again here?

Living in So. Cal over 50 yrs never had a desire to get into those crowds for this parade. TV does a great job.
