The End Of 2015

As 2015 comes to a close a few thoughts...

They say Youth is Wasted on the Young.

When I was much younger I didn't quite get that. Now that I'm older it makes perfect sense.

Physically, the bod doesn't do what it once did and the old adage that a person can end up in a room and not know why they even went in there, is true.

Remember when Prince recorded We're Gonna Party Like It's 1999? Remember how far off that seemed to be? Now look how far in the rear view mirror 1999 is...

This year my twins went from Elementary to Middle School. A lot of hand wringing and teeth gnashing from their father went into that. Turns out they are blossoming and their grades are very nice.

Who knew?

Plus they ride their bikes to school and I was dead against it. Danger Will Robinson and all that. My daughter, Maya, was like, "They'll be fine. This isn't New York." She was right. Helmets, lunches, back packs, and they're off.

For what seems like forever, I've watched the ball drop at midnight in Times Square. 3-2-1 and confetti everywhere.

I was in Times Square for New Years Eve.
I was broadcasting the night that the 90s turned into 2000. Yep, Y2K. Can you say nervous? Everybody was nervous. People had built bunkers, had bought tons of rations and waited for everything to stop and...nothing happened.

Very cool.

And by the way look at the clock in the corner of the picture. Midnight.

Okay, New Years Resolutions.

This is the time of year that everyone is resolute about...something. The big one is I'm going to lose, fill in the blank, x amount of pounds. It's the reason gyms are full after the first and TV is full of ads for Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig.

Go get 'em Tiger.

I wish you Good Health, Good Luck, and lots of Love.

Happy New Year.
