Wishing everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010 from the ocean state of RHODE ISLAND

As I waited for the final countdown 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2
at midnight in Times Square, New York City with Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest. I realized that I had been doing this for so many years, waiting for the big apple to inch down or now the huge 12 ft crystal ball to the last second to 1 and then "HAPPY NEW YEAR." As a child when my parents would go partying my younger brother and I would stay in my Nana and VooVoo's apartment next door and watch the New Year come in. They would give us some huge pots and cooking spoons and said when the apple drops to the Happy New Year you can bang these as loud as you like. What memories and fun. After we would have a light snack and milk and go to bed.

Today is the day begin as day, January 1, 2010 This was the day we would have dinner at my grandparents and watch the Pasadena Tournament of Rose Parade. My cousins and I would play games like, Monopoly or Sorry while our fathers and Uncles would sit in front of the TV and watch all the football games. They would smoke their pipes, or cigars and have their brandy in hand. The Rose Bowl, there was the Orange Bowl in Florida, the Cotton Bowl in Texas and the Sugar Bowl in Louisiana. Our mothers and Aunts would sit around the kitchen table and share stories of the past years and share recipes and craft ideas, some would bring their knitting and crocheting to do while they chatted. Those would great days of fabulous memories. Do I miss my family ancestors. It is so sad to have a huge family dwindle down to only a few.

My wishes to all of you as you begin this new year that you have an abundance of joy, happiness, love, good health and success in all your endeavors, dream big and make a change in the lives of the ones you love and the people you engage with in person or on line with all the social medias available . Make a difference in their lives, put a smile on their faces and provide them with hope make a difference one person at a time. Let their be peace on earth for all men and woman and children. Use your 525,600 minutes and measure your life with LOVE (Listen to the video)
