It's just after 9:15pm (2115hrs) here in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand and we're about to go out and bring in the new year.
In just under 3 hours, think of us here, outside in summer temperatures, sitting around a burning dinghy sized metal boat, singing Geordie songs and then playing Auld lang syne on my smallpipes while the rest of the crowd join hands and sing.
I'm also hoping to sing the Peace Round as well, with Kytrad in my thoughts.
Joy, health, love and peace, be here in this place....
See you next year!
Love to all,
Robyn

Wish I'd had a chance to learn Jean's Peace round but our PC died a week or so ago and I've only limited access. We'll be going over to South Wales (old, not new) later today to party with a whole load of Folkies.

Have fun wherever you may be, whatever time it is. I will be thinking of Peace with you even if I can't sing it.

Sydney heading to midnight - I'm listening to the NYE radio program so I'll know when it's midnight.

As I mentioned in the preliminary thread, living in Kings Cross - Sydney's entertainment capital - I normally stay at home cos it's too bloody hard to get back home.

So tonight as per normal I went for my evening walk down the road (thru the Cross) & round the corner (into Potts Point) & towards the park that overlooks the Harbour & the Bridge. It's normally pretty empty apart from a few walkers & dog owners & I often take pics of the city skyline & sunset.

Today the Park was locked until 6pm when the waiting crowds could enter - folks were sitting on picnic blankets on the street, some folks had staked out spots on the footpath (sidewalk to some folks) maybe cos the park was alcohol free!

I was wandering past when an acquaintance said hello & I spent the next few hours chatting with her in her nearby apartment then we viewed the 9pm fireworks & went our separate ways.

She was planning to wander out & see the midnight fireworks so I assume she'll be back in that very crowded street now.

Sydney NYE09 - 9pm fireworks

Sydney NYE09 - 9pm fireworks

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We sang the Peace round as well as Auld Lang Syne, then we had a feast that included Pease Puddin' and Stotty Cake - traditional Northumbrian fare.

Sum Yung Sun and I went out to supper at our favorite local restaurant - the Saratoga Grill - shared their New Year's eve special - crab dip appetizer, a wonderful salad with pears, walnuts, mixed greens and feta, filet, lobster, chilled asparagus in a dijon sauce, and their wonderful homemade scones. He has been with his Dad for almost two weeks and I am thrilled to have him back with me.

Home now, messing around and chatting about the assorted music he is playing - Will be making some calls a bit a later. Wish I had some more phone numbers!

Sort of related - did anyone watch to "Honors" program broadcast from the Lincoln Center Tuesday night?

Was great in London ... I stood on top of the hill beside where I live and had a view of the whole city.

he idea was to seee the fireworks over the thames, but we got a lot more than that as on the stroke of midnight fireworks sprouted like spring flowers over the whole city from peoples back gardens and partiies, while the main display rumbled and roared around the London eye which became a Giant catherine wheel.

Hundreds of people had brought paper lanterns which filled up with hot air and floated up into the sky, adding to the spectacle beautifully.

2009 was a great year for me, lets hope that 2010 can compare.

Happy New Year folks!
