    Same to you Amin. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I also wish to thank the admin and mods for all your hard work on this site. It is a truly fun place for hanging out which I consider my personal happy place on the Internet (even brings me more happiness than porn :rofl:)

    Right back atcha, Amin.

    For the first time in a couple of decades we're going out to dinner on New Year's Eve. The Princess of the Exchequer has requested prime rib and that's beyond my cooking skills. Since she has signed off on a number of gear acquisitions in 2012 it seems only fair to accede to her request.

    It's a local Detroit tradition to, at midnight, go into the back yard and fire off any side arms that one might have laying around into the night sky. It sounds a lot like Tay Ninh circa 1969. NOT my favorite time of the year. The authorities are promoting the use of bells instead of bullets but I suspect they will have limited success.

    A good single malt, some Sinatra on the stereo, and a good book is, to me, the best way of starting the new year. Add some ice cubes if you want to go a bit on the wild side :eek:.

    PLEASE - everyone be safe tonight.

    Best regards,

    Hey Jim, New Year's Eve must be the safest night of the year in Motown, if no guns are fired until midnight... :biggrin:

    Stay out of the crossfire (and don't spill your beverage)!

    Dean, I should have been more explicit - no guns are fired vertically until midnight...:cool:

    No worries on the single malt; I use IGDS.

    (In Glass Drink Stabilization...).
