New Years Eve Aftermath
I have been tied up (not literally, unfortunately) with NYE party and Christmas decorations clean up and had hoped to get back to everyone much sooner than this. Sue me.
First, thank you Boxer for hosting the best (only) virtual New Years Eve Party I've ever attended. Huge participation and commenting from a ton of people. Some really funny and interesting stuff.
Second, I apologize for the bad link in my post for the Boy Scouts of America. Completely unintentional and I didn't realize it until today. All this linking got me turned around.
Thirdly, I think because I was tied up with a real NYE party here at Kill Manor, my overall participation affected how many people who visited my site and the charitable donation amount. I had 28 total comments at 50 cents per comment that would make the donation $14. I'm going to round that up to $50 and that donation went out today to the Southern New Jersey Council, White Horse District. This is the council the boys belong to and they can always use the support. Thank you all for humoring my New Years Eve Blog.
Fourthly, I hope everyone not only had a virtual good time, but a "real" good time this New Years in however you celebrated. We had 3 neighbor couples with kids come by and it was a nice, quiet evening (because I threw the kids in the basement with the Xbox and some Cheetos). We had one broken wine glass on the kitchen floor (red Zin - that stuff makes a sticky mess) and one couple actually bailed on us at 11:00PM. That was not an indication of how boring we are but rather, how boring they are (the Mrs and I were taking bets before they arrived as to when they would leave). We had more than enough food with a spiral ham, meatball sandwiches and stuffed shells (all store bought) along with various appetizers. We let the kids out at midnight but they all immediately ran back in the house because it was too cold - pussies.
Fifthly, I'm going to try and make a Navy Bean Soup with the leftover ham bone and may post about that.
Sixthly, one last time - Happy New Year to all!
