One small benefit of living in a country big enough to have 6 or 7 time zones is you can take advantage of it to time travel. My wife and I watched the CBC New Years celebration from St. John's Newfoundland so the clock struck midnight and Auld Lang Sine was sung at 10:30 our time and we could go to bed.
Happy New Years to all and their dogs!
Four hours away from me and; I had four more hours celebrating cause I kept going till the ‘Big Apple’ had their ‘ball drop’ on CNN.

Well I am still here it seems
Was in bed at 10pm, couldn't be arsed with it all
10.20 for me, i can never be arsed with it
Well it was 10.30 for me (as I wanted to be up early to be on a river at first light) only to be woken up at 11 by my wife phoning to wish me a happy New Year, as there was a one hour time difference where she was, she then rather accurately said "I bet this is the best New Years Eve you have had in years and how many parties did you turn down to manage it?"

I stayed up until 2 a.m. and , along with everyone else in the street , never saw a single "first footer." New Years ain't what they used to be. When in my late teens right up into my 30's I used to crawl home sometime between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. …..and then have a hair of the dog to ward off a hangover. They're aw a bunch o' peelie wally saps nowadays wi' nae stamina at aw !
