"An optimist stays up until midnight
to see the new year in. A pessimist
stays up to make sure the old
year leaves."
Bill Vaughn
Ring out the old, ring in the new
Ring, happy bells, across the snow
The year is going, let it go
Ring out the false, ring in the true
Alfred, Lord Tennesynon
New Year's day is every man's
Charles Lamb
Be always at war with your vices,
at peace with your neighbors,
and let each new year find
you a better man.
Benjamin Franklin
Many people look forward to
the new year for a new start
on old habits.

Doris, you have been my cheer leader during my short blogging career in 2010. I hope that you will keep on cheering me and I'll try to do the same for you. I've enjoyed your visits very much and look forward to many more interesting visits in 2011 and beyond. Have a great New Year dear friend. Hugs, Julia

Hi Doris

I found your site through a mutual blogger, Cathy of Orange Sink. Very nice and just to add, I have a Jack Russell too, Maddy! I live in the very east of Canada, Newfoundland, and love rug hooking too.

Nice to meet you. Happy New Year to you and all the best.

Doris, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I was editing and noticed that I had two versions so I deleted one.

I'm looking forward to doing this challenge. I'm glad that Pat Weaver also joined the challenge.

I'm sending some best wishes for a wonderful and happy new year with good health and everything good. Hugs. JB
