Here's to a great New Year with cruises restarting as soon as possible.

 

edited to add --

The Daily gets over a thousand views most days. Yesterday was 2.3 thousand -- as far as I know the most we have had.

 

Rich

God Bless you for starting it and keeping it going during these trying times

Good afternoon and Happy New Year!

Our year is off to a snowy start.

Looks like 5 or 6 inches by the time it ends. The weather has decided for us that it's a good day for a pot of chicken and noodles this afternoon.

Wishing everyone a wonderful start to a much better year.

Forgot to mention, we did not hear any fireworks 💥 last night either.  After thinking about, we don’t remember seeing any for sale.  Normally, the big box store north of us has a ton for sale.  In the past, the 🎆 would start shortly after sunset.  It could be they weren’t for sale because southwest Arizona like southern California is experiencing severe drought conditions.  None of us needs a wildfire now, if ever.  Since March or April, this area has received about 3/100 th of an inch of rain.

 

On another note, we did not see any live trees 🌲 for sale around here either.

Happy New Year!

 

We made it to midnight and saw the old year out and the new year in.  As soon as the clock struck 12 the fireworks went off in the neighbourhood.  

 

For years our New Year's Day dinner consisted of ham, scalloped potatoes, corn bread and a variety of side dishes.  This year I could not find a ham, so the menu has changed.  Tonight we will be feasting on roast beef, Yorkshire puddings, and a variety of vegetables.  If that is not enough we will finish off with carrot cake, if I get it baked.

 

All the best to everyone for a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2021.

 

Cheers,

 

Val

When we were in Antarctic waters we found all the animals and birds seemed to be unafraid of us, and curious.

 

The "King" chicks were all over the place on South Georgia.

And the "weaners" (the elephant seal pups whose mothers had left them alone on the beach while they went back to sea) were so curious and just wanted love..P1010116.thumb.jpeg.5e4adfa5d81b9d900ea3d1f2e6113866.jpeg

There was a bull elephant seal who fell in love with one of the zodiacs - the guides were nervous that he would damage it, so they had to bravely go in and shoo him away.

The penguins didn't mind posing for the photographers.

Dinner tonite will be fresh ahi tuna seared in sesame oil with sesame seeds, angel hair pasta with green onions - scallions - more sesame oil and seeds, and a salad.  Oh on this thread I don't even need to mention wine.  Of course, it goes without saying, doesn't it.

Yum!  You can never have too much sesame oil. 😍

And yes, most of us do love our wine. 😄

Happy New Year in beautiful Victoria, BC to you and Pat, Ann 😄

Thank you - but not so beautiful today, rather dreary, but never mind, a new year means new adventures!

Usually, it takes me a day or two to get around to changing the calendars, but not this year.  The old ones were in the trash and the new ones up hung up by 12:20 am. 😀 👏

I have you beat, I changed all the calendars in the house yesterday afternoon. 🤣  Could not wait!

Ha!  Thanks for the photos of your trip.  That elephant seal is HUGE!  I would be afraid of damage too.

Can't go wrong with Oliebollen on New Year's Eve, Tony, Happy New Year and stay safe!

 

Well, on second thought, you can add Appelflappen 😉

Really don't have a meal on New Year's Day. Put out platters with cheeses, summer sausage, pimento cheese spread and crackers when Rose Bowl Parade starts. Keep refilling as needed until the last football game.

 

No parade this year, but there was a 2-hour celebration of it with clips from past parades.

 

Actually saw the 1964 parade after spending the night across from the NBC cameras. Illinois beat Washington in the game. Most memorable moment: We put our linebacker (Dick Butkus) in at center for one touchdown from the 1-yard line. QB just followed him across.

have you eaten at "The Speckled Door", they had the most amazing oysters?

They also do pretty great crab sandwiches!  One summer, many, many years ago we stayed in a caravan (RV) down there at Garrettstown.
