The Year 2008 Arrives!

And here are a few other things that arrived this morning:
  • The newspaper.
  • A new Washington minimum wage of $8.07.
  • A 2007 "wrap-up" column in newspapers nationwide from the mostly-silent Dave Barry.
  • The Twilight Zone marathon on the Sci-Fi channel.
  • Collard greens and black eyed peas.
  • Colds for two of us in the household.
  • A new service package from DirecTV.
  • A leap year.
  • The end of sending and receiving text messages in motor vehicles in Washington state: "texting" is now illegal.
  • The Chinese Year of the Rat bringing prosperity with a side of egg rolls to all who embrace the DVD release of Ratatouille.

Oh yes - and a very Happy New Year to you all, of course!

Happy New Year to you too, old pal. I was going to text that to you, but I was afraid you might be driving.

And a Happy New Year to you, Jay. I hope that my becoming a blogger helps bring Cary, NC a bit closer to Seattle. All the best.
