Here is a link to Times Square, if anyone is interested. I watched it last year, it was pretty cool. I cant believe the amount of people that are there right now!!! You can hear all the music and all the people....enjoy.

Smile Thanks Suzet!

Looks a little too crowded for me! LOL, and they still have a ways to go yet. Thanks for sharing.

Wishing you a wonderful New Years & all the best for 2008!

I watched it on tv last night and it looked like tons of fun. And I liked the performers they had putting on shows there. Anyone else think Dick Clark didn't look so good. It was tough to see him slurring and talking like he did. But overall it was awesome.. A bit too crowded for me to go to, but definetly worth the watch on tv.

Funny, I was actually thinking that Dick Clark looked and sounded so much better than last year. It was pretty sad the year that he had the stroke in what, 2004? When he came back the next year, he made a speech talking about it (how he had difficulty talking, etc) Last year was a little sad when he just didn't get the timing and said Happy New Year like 3 or 4 seconds before it actually was. Then last night we noticed that he rushed the countdown, and slowed down and got it just about perfect

Last year you were probably walking on the beach or something at midnight--now that you're here in New Hampshire you were watching Dick Clark's Rockin New Years Eve What is it they call him, America's Youngest Teenager? My youngest said that in an episode of Futurama, he's on playing himself, as a preserved head in a jar. Go figure...

It was actually pretty balmy out there for New Years--the years we've gone into Boston 1st night the temps were well below zero, and we needed to go into the bars to get antifreeze for our blood instead of walking, skating, etc

I watched it the live cam for most of the day, and then missed the ball dropping..haha. I did catch the replay on TV and to me it was bittersweet to seeing Dick Clark. He is mister Rockin New Years Eve, and it was sad to see him slur his words, the poor guy. I didnt see it last year, so this was the first time I had actually seen or heard him since his stroke. Now that I have put some thought into this..I dont think I could really handle being in THAT crowd!!! It looks very exciting, but it doesnt look like I could make an easy exit if I got overwhelmed. Like I said, maybe safely in a hotel room overlooking Times Square would be the way to go.

I saw on the news today, how instead of a ball dropping, either So Carolina or No Carolina had a giant peach drop..haha. I thought that was so cute.
