Out of the Blue

Happy New Years Eve! I hope you all have something planned that suits your own idea of how to celebrate the occasion. If you do hit the roads, however, please remember to be extra careful... I managed to have not one, but two scares behind the wheel yesterday from bad drivers (a guy in oncoming traffic borrowing a portion of my lane and a woman who thought using the turn signal before switching to my lane meant she didn't have to even look to see if a car was already there) within minutes of each other, which seemed to serve as a warning about what happens when some of these drivers (even the good ones) have a few belts in them. And of course, please don't drink and drive yourself... if safety doesn't serve as enough of a motivator, many U.S. states, my native New York included, have recently lowered the legal limits... in these parts it's now illegal to drive with a blood alcohol level of over .08. Oh yeah, and for those of you in the East where the ball (or equivalent) has dropped already, Happy New Year (and remember, please don't tell the rest of us what happens in the future, or our actions may change what is meant to be).

Hey look at that... guess there was indeed one last ramble at the bottom of the 2002 pile!
