Happy New Year 2010!

Boy did I get it wrong last year.  I thought the worst was behind us then.  Or maybe I got it right; new opportunities abound that we wouldn’t have seen otherwise.   But, in the immortal words of Bullwinkle Moose, “This time, for sure!”  (Or, “Maybe I gotta get myself a new hat.”)  Here is wishing for a safe, healthy and prosperous 2010 for all of my readers.  Yeah, all three or four of you.  That means you, too, Warren.

As usual, we snacked on meats and cheeses (“The Spread”) until midnight, then toasted the new year with Ice Wine and watched the famous Chicago Harbor fireworks in HD.  A boring night for some, sure… but a fun night for a family with kids.

What the heck do I mean by The Spread?  We go to The Chalet, a cheese shop at Binney’s Beverage Depot.  Each day, they get a different load of imported cheeses and meats.  They let you taste them, then sell you whatever you want to take home.  So each of us picked one each, after tasting them, and took home five meats and five cheeses to eat with crackers.

The Spread

Then we sit around and do what Americans do best… watch T.V.!


Then the fireworks, Ice Wine, and family revelry.

Happy New Year!
