Bet you didn't know:
Today is Saint Silvester's Day. Evil spirits are traditionally driven away with clanging bells on this night by villagers in Urnasch, Switzerland, where the pre-Julian New Year's Eve continues to be celebrated on this date.
In pre-Christian Ireland, the thirteenth day of January was celebrated each year as the Feast of Brewing by the ancient and mysterious priests known as the Druids.
Did you know there are only 352 days left till 2011? *lol. Thought I'd put it in perspective for everyone. Think I might be a glass half full or half empty kind of person? Depends on how your year is going so far I guess.;)*
Also, It's the date regulators in the U.S. and Europe prepare the largest global financial overhaul since The Great Depression. *It's about time don't you think*

Happy New Year! Let me say it is off to a smashing start. And no I am not referring to the car accident that decimated my darling vehicle. No, I am referring to the awesome year we have to look forward to. A year full of new friends and getting reacquainted with old ones. To new beginnings and all the endless possibilities for improvement in every area of our lives.
I'm not a big holiday person, but I always look forward to January. Mostly becausze it means taxes refunds are right around the corner. lol. But also because I can plan what i want to accomplish during the year and set a realistic start date for whatever they may be. Of course, like a lot of people I only seem to sprint and fizzle out by February. But I have high hopes that this year will be different.
This year I will finish at least 2 of my full length works in progress, submit the one that is finished and get "the call". Okay that last one is left to the powers that be but a girl has to have a positive attitude, right?
So what are your plans for the new year? Get a new job? Find that old flame? Please comment. Let me know. I would love to know I'm not the only one shooting for those stars.
