Happy New Year

I don't know how you "rang in" the New Year, but hopefully you did it responsibly. Being the party animals that we are, Mom, Dad, Roger and I stayed home and watched the Waterford Crystal Ball drop in Times Square at midnight from the confines of our comfy couch. Exciting, I know. Actually, it was a far better option than the alternative which was to drive to nearby Dillsburg, PA, stand out in the bitter cold, and watch the infamous Dill Pickle drop at midnight.

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!
