Roger and I found the new design of the New Year’s Eve Ball to be extremely well crafted. Double the size of previous balls, the new one is a 12 foot geodesic sphere and weighs 11,875 pounds. Covered in 2,668 Waterford Crystals and powered by 32,256 Philips Luxeon Rebel LEDS, the new ball is capable of creating a palette of more than 16 million vibrant colors and billions of patterns.
I don't know if you were fortunate enough to see any of the new patterns, but Roger and I found the above design to be the most breathtaking.
After such a thrilling night of partying, today we are just kicking back and waiting for the Rose Bowl to come on. GO LIONS!!!
Wishing you health, wealth, and happiness in 2009!
