Happy New Year!



No predictions, no retrospective "10 best/worst" lists. Just a prayer:

May God bless our valiant troops and grant them victory. May He also have mercy on the souls of those troops who have died, and give comfort to their families and their friends. And may He heal those wounded in body and spirit.

God bless my readers and their families, and may the coming year bring them happiness, good health and prosperity.

May God give us the wisdom and the determination to extricate ourselves from the coils of an expansive and parasitical State in this critical election year.

Good luck to all, and don't miss watching the big event, tonight.

No, no; not the dropping of the big red ball in Times Square. The dropping of the giant Moon Pie in Mobile, Alabama.

Update - Sunday funny: Occupy Lego!

To your prayer, AMEN.

Now a quite question, WHAT ON EARTH IS A MOON PIE? Not something that wronwright has thought up is it???

Paco said...

Merilyn: It is what you might call the national dish of the rural parts of the old Confederacy. You may learn about it here.

And it is frequently washed down, by native gourmands, with an R.C. Cola.

Happy New Year to all! May this be the year that Obama ceases being President, and falls into the role long fulfilled by Jimmy Carter.

Merilyn -- you haven't lived until you've eaten a MOON PIE! Mmmmmmmmm......moon pie!

Mayhaps someone could form the Pies for Australian Consumption Organization? Might be worth quite a few shekels!

Merilyn said...

Ah thank you Paco, something similar to a "Weston Waggon Wheel". Although that has jam in the centre.

Well now JeffS, that might not be a bad idea...........

Happy New Year to one, and all!

I have only one resolution for 2012.

Help elect a new president.

I hope you all made the same resolution.
