"In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship but never in want." ~ Traditional Irish New Year’s Toast

"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing." ~ Abraham Lincoln


"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

And finally . . .

Auld Lang Syne

by Robert Burns

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld lang syne,

We'll take a cup o' kindness yet For auld lang syne
We twa hae run aboot the braes

And pou'd the gowans fine; we've wander'd mony a weary foot

Sin' auld lang syne
We two hae paidled i' the burn, Frae mornin' sun till dine;

But seas between us braid hae roar'd Sin' auld lang syne
And here's a hand, my trusty friend, And gie's a hand o' thine;

We'll take a cup o' kindness yet For auld lang syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,and never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne?


For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld lang syne,

We'll take a cup o' kindness yet

For auld lang syne**

Happy New Year!!!

** translation:

Should old acquaintances be forgotten, And never brought to mind? Should old acquaintances be forgotten, And days of long ago !

Chorus: For old long ago, my dear For old long ago, We will take a cup of kindness yet For old long ago.

We two have run about the hillsides And pulled the daisies fine, But we have wandered many a weary foot For old long ago. We two have paddled (waded) in the stream From noon until dinner time, But seas between us broad have roared Since old long ago. And there is a hand, my trusty friend, And give us a hand of yours, And we will take a goodwill draught (of ale) For old long ago!And surely you will pay for your pint, And surely I will pay for mine! And we will take a cup of kindness yet For old long ago!
