Happy New Year!

The tradition of dropping the big ball in New York City is 100 years old this year. Actually the ball is new this year. It is made by Waterford and lit with new energy efficient LED bright lights. Being in NYC with all the crowd waiting for the ball to drop, has never been on my to-do list.

Where ever you are, have fun and be safe. This isn't the ball you'll see in New York City, or the peach that will drop in Atlanta, or some of these other weird things that will drop at midnight...
Any idea where this one is?
Happy New Year Y'all!
One of my Slow Travel friends guessed... this is the Diana Memorial at Kensington Palace.

Hey Sandi! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I am a southern girl who somehow landed up in the frozen tundra of Maine a year and a half ago. We have lived all over the south and actually lived in Mobile twice and Selma once. Selma was my very favorite! How far were we from you?

Thanks again for visiting and I will be back to see you for sure!

Karla~ Happy New Year to y'all!
Fran~ I'm glad you stopped in, you are always welcome at the cafe. We can be your taste of the south.

Hi Sandi,
One of my favorite things to see is the Eiffel Tower on New Years. They light it up and have fire works-it's fantastic.
My black-eyed peas are soaking now, the pork roast is marinating, the greens are washed. How about some pear relish for those greens?
Happy New Year!

Hi Sandi...we brought home some nice Biltmore wine. Have some chilling for our midnight toast...if we're still awake, that is!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Sandi!

Here's hoping your 2008 is full of cookies that don't burn on the botttom, cakes that are thick with chocolate frosting, fried chicken with that perfect crispy skin, biscuits light as a feather, and a tall glass of sweet tea...with lemon! And NO asparagus or beets!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Happy, happy New Years, Sandi! Hope ya'll have some good safe fun.

So glad I met you this year! We need to meet up again sometime in 2008. Let's do!

Well now...I sure enjoyed your blog. Loved the peanut brittle instructions and really laughed at the out-of-date spice tins post. I believe I may have a few of those. Your blog is delightful and I would love to add you to my links list. Hope you have a very Happy New Year and please come back and visit me again. Cheers, Lynn
