Quiet here I think. Hubby will be snoozing by 1030, and I'll watch the ball drop with the kitties :)

Well, we here in the Boston area are expecting some very, very cold weather. So those folks who are planning on going out to celebrate, good luck to them. Bundle up.

We have a First Night parade that starts somewhere around 4 p.m. It is mostly for the kids. It gives them a chance to dress up and celebrate with the adults.

Then at 8 p.m. the adults start to celebrate and our transportation system will be free for the night. Less drunks on the road. I will be staying home and NOT be watching the festivities around the nation.

Addie, we're expecting highs just over 0 F and lows around -15 F. I do not want to be out in that if I don't have to, and I don't have to.

We'll be vegging at our daughter's place, probably with our son, while she heads over to a friend's place to watch tv and relax. Quiet night since we'll be heading home probably Friday. *sigh* Sure wish we lived back home already.

We are not having a new year's day open house this year. For the first time since forever I plan to watch the Rose Bowl parade in my jammies.

We decided we will make a pot of sloppy joes, chips, veggies, dips for those who we know will drop by to watch college bowl games.

Jr/ GF are going out NYE. While I know they are responsible, it's those other crazies I get concerned.

NY eve we are staying in , watching movies.

We settled on making marinated pineapple teriyaki chicken skewers, rice, a simple salad and some munchies. No need to even go to the store for anything.

Happy New Year!

A bottle of Moscato d'Asti and movies, until I go to sleep. I do still need to show up to work, at some point, on New Year's Day.

Do any of you know how long a bottle of unopened champagne, that has been under constant refrigeration, will last?

I have two 375ML bottles of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin that have been in the refrigerator since 2005 and this year I have decided to drink them or dump them.

Which should it be, keep in mind that you are dealing with someone that will eat potatoes that have been left out all night!

Have they turned to vinegar yet? How many of your friends have champagne vinegar?

provided that the bottles were kept at a constant temperature & stored horizontally,so that the corks don't dry out,champers will keep for ever(well,almost).bottoms up,they'll be fine,auntie!!
