Young At Heart

I got to watch the last 40 minutes of a show on PBS last night called Young At Heart. It was a documentary about a group of senior citizens who travel around the world and sing renditions of rock songs. I laughed out loud at some of their antics, until the last 15 minutes or so, when the ugly realities of life strike the group. Watch this amazing song and see if you can keep a dry eye.

Happy New Year!

Welcome aboard the crazy 2010 train. A mere 10 years after the world was going to end (1999) and just two years before the next so called destruction of mother earth (2012), New Years Day has now become a bigger drinking day than the fabled night before. Is that any way to keep a New Years resolution? Assuming of course that your resolution was to eat better and drink less, and that all time dreaded word, e x e r c i s e. Instead there are beer events galore for even the most beeriest of geeks. Lambics at the Tap And Table, Stouts at Monks, Anniversary parties at Local 44. What ever happened to staying at home and sleeping on the couch while pretending to watch football? Is nothing sacred anymore?

Me, myself and I only have a couple of resolutions this year. Here they be in no order what so ever.
1-Finish what I have started. No need to explain this one.
2-Write at least 100 posts this year. No cheating with one line ones either.
3-E x e r c i s e. No, not the let's go and join the gym thing. Maybe just some some yogurt and Kung Pao to start.

Well, there is three off the top of my ever balding head. There is probably more, but let us not get crazy and all on the first day of the new year.

Gelukkig Nievwjaar Voor Iedereen!
