Didn't see them but have recorded them. Pat and I had a nice quiet meal at the pub, a particularly good game casserole, a bottle of wine, then back home for Jools Holland's hootenany. First new year at home for ages.

Well worth the watch. St Greta will have had a coronary!!

I was with friends - French & English - in the village, so we did New Year twice, then a very frosty walk home under the most amazing starlight sky at 3am.

Fireworks donít really do it for me . Seen one show then they all look repetitive . Thatís just me . Could have a few sparklers and build a new hospital for the money .

Thank you all, but it's the 32nd of December here in Bromham so not.my birthday. Tomorrow is 2nd January, neatly bypassing the first, so I'm no older. I think I've found the secret of eternal youth!

An interesting point. There are lots of things I'd like to be stopped in order to spend the money on more worthy projects, like hospitals. However there are plenty of reasons why the fireworks thing has taken off. Part of it is national pride; if you were in the UAE or New York or those other places like Sydney then you'd realise what impact these displays have on the populace. That said, I'm still not sure the Sydney display should have happened.

As to what to stop. The foreign aid budget could build a few hospitals and shut down HS2 and replace it with more funding for local integrated transport systems.

But happy New Year anyway.

Agreed Ian, although you both make valid points.

Happy New Year to all & Happy Birthday, Max.

Clever little thread title, Peter!
