Honest! I did not mean to leave the previous post up so long, the one with the comments about the T-shirt clearance sale. However, we have sold a few shirts! The truth is, the holiday deadlines and the holidays themselves have taken their toll on our online enterprises the past few weeks, but that will end soon. About Tuesday, I’ll try to be back on a more regular basis. I was doing so well for a while there. Before then, I will try to be back with a Happy New Year post, but should I not make it, let me wish you an early… Happy New Year!!!

Buy the new book, "Beaucoup Arlo & Janis!"Today's "Arlo & Janis!"

    I don’t remember whether I’ve posted this here before, but one truck driver built his own telescope. Our club is trying to arrange a time and place to visit him and his ‘scope:

    I’m happy to report that our next astronomy club meeting on 1/10/18 will feature this professor:

    Belated Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2018 from the Webworker household to you, JJ.

    Thanks for all the years of A&J. Milady and I have grown old with those friends-in-four-panels.

    Good morning and almost New Year. Ghost and Dickens and I just woke up from a long winters nap.

    I have obviously been half lucid, I had forgotten about bla keyed peas, greens and cornbread.

    The South .cannot face a new year without our good luck meal

  12. David from Austin on 30 Dec 2017 at 1:32 pm #

    Still plenty of time today to pick up New Year’s Day groceries. Do your black-eyed peas and greens get cooked with ham hock or salt pork? I don’t know which is luckier!

  13. Morphy on 30 Dec 2017 at 1:56 pm #

    mindful webworker, I really liked your ‘friends-in-four-panels’ and will probably find a reason to use it somewhere down the road. Thanks in advance.

    Wishes for continuing prosperity, and recovery from all ills, to everyone.

    Llee, very good to read the improvements for your brother. Glad you have them with you.

  14. Morphy on 30 Dec 2017 at 2:19 pm #

    Ghost, I liked Tamara’s brief post you linked to yesterday. Not sure if it is a full counterpoint to her classification system, but Darin Bell has another view in today’s

  15. JACKQULINE MONIES on 30 Dec 2017 at 2:27 pm #

    Ham hocks but my mama and granny used whatever was around including fresh pork, supplemented by drippings in an old coffee can.

    Of course the greens came fresh out of the garden in yard for New Year’s dinner.

    The peas came out of the freezer from the summer garden.

    Progress: Today’s Dustin could not have been printed in the ’30s-’40s.

    Nuts! Thought I was copying the comics kingdom URL, but obviously was not. [Also, champagne beforehand is no help. Shakespeare said so.]

    It was me. Hadn’t introduced my new laptop to das Blogmeister yet. Peace,

    Good morning from frigid Tulsa, where it is now 16 degrees with a forecast low of 8 for tonight. Jackie, you didn’t tell me Tulsa was part of the Arctic Circle!

  20. curmudgeonly ex-professor on 31 Dec 2017 at 10:44 am #

    Glad to hear from you, eMb. I read where you’ve been having some record cold on the order of -30F. Stay bundled up.

  21. Bob in Orland Park on 31 Dec 2017 at 1:42 pm #

    Happy New Year everyone from the frozen tundra of the Chicagoland area.

  22. Sideburns on 31 Dec 2017 at 3:14 pm #

    Just to let all of you in the snow belt know, we’re expecting a high of 69 today and a low of 47. Happy New Year!

  23. Mark in TTown on 31 Dec 2017 at 6:18 pm #

    Happy New Year to all the Village, and especially to our inspiration, Jimmy.

    Want to get this out early. I work tomorrow so I will be asleep long before midnight.

  24. David from Austin on 31 Dec 2017 at 7:11 pm #

    Happy New Year all! Just celebrated my 34th wedding anniversary– steak dinner out with my bride. It was cold on my wedding day, much like it has been today.

  25. Ghost on 31 Dec 2017 at 7:15 pm #

    Although it was not -30F, it was fairly cold today in OK. In fact, at noon when I was out, I heard a loud clanging sound and looked up to see a brass monkey looking down in dismay at a body part of his that had fallen off.

    And it will be even colder tomorrow.

  26. TruckerRon on 31 Dec 2017 at 7:16 pm #

    My valley made it up to 47F today, is supposed to drop to 17F tonight, and over the next few days have highs of 38, 36, and 38F with lows of 18, 15, and 18F. That’s about 10F above normal for this time of year. Thanks for lending us some warmth from other areas!

  27. Nancy Kirk in AZ on 31 Dec 2017 at 7:19 pm #

    Happy New Year to all. We are in sunny SoCal with our son and DIL and her parents doing fun things and getting ready to celebrate husband Jim’s 80th birthday tomorrow.

  28. emb on 31 Dec 2017 at 8:49 pm #

    Trucker. Please send some of your above normals to us subnormals. Peace,

  29. Charlotte in NH on 31 Dec 2017 at 10:58 pm #

    Nancy Kirk, glad you are someplace warm! Tell Jim that the 80′s aren’t too bad at all; Happy Birthday to him. Boy, this cold weather is something else! I am staying home, warm and snug by the computer. I am feeling good — felt as though I was coming down with a cold a few days ago, then it went away — what luck! I am almost never sick.

    Happy to see that emb is back, and with a new laptop. Was it from Santa Claus? Hope it isn’t giving you too much aggravation. It’s nearly midnight; no tv for me; listening to wqxr in New York City, on the Internet. They are playing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Close to the end, the tenor and then the chorus just came in.

    (Dearest Ghost, your clever allusion to the brass monkey made me smile.)

  30. Charlotte in NH on 31 Dec 2017 at 11:03 pm #

    Happy New Year to all the dear Villagers. May 2018 bring everyone happiness and peace. Love from wicked cold New Hampshire.

  31. TruckerRon on 31 Dec 2017 at 11:21 pm #

    The folks at our nearby sky resorts would happily trade temperatures with you if they could. They’re getting desperate.

  32. curmudgeonly ex-professor on 01 Jan 2018 at 12:00 am #

    May 2018 bring with it true blessings for all, especially for Villagers!

    (Did I get in first for 2018 or last for 2017 or neither?)

    Time for a few Ritz crackers with lightly smoked Gouda…no EtOH, since I took some medications not too long ago.

  33. JACKQULINE MONIES on 01 Jan 2018 at 12:33 am #

    Happy New Year from Ghost and me. And Dickens.

  34. curmudgeonly ex-professor on 01 Jan 2018 at 1:26 am #

    Found out that Ritz + smoked Gouda chunk + jalapeno slice = quite enjoyable snack.

  35. JACKQULINE MONIES on 01 Jan 2018 at 2:52 am #

    I hope gastric reflux isn’t one of your problems!

  36. Mark in TTown on 01 Jan 2018 at 6:29 am #

    The forecast was right, but I wish it wasn’t. Temperature outside is fluctuating between 5 and 6 degrees F. Happy New Year, stay warm and keep your pets inside if you can.

  37. Mark in TTown on 01 Jan 2018 at 6:33 am #

    I can agree with this:

  38. Llee on 01 Jan 2018 at 7:50 am #

    Happy new year, friends! ZERO on the temp. reading from the porch. Oh well, up is a good direction to go. :) And it will go up, in time. (Right?) Jerry, has your part of FLorida frozen over? Hope you are ok.

    Rob and his family leave early this morning, I said goodbyes last evening. GEE it was good to see them. He had a new movie and we two watched it at my house- THe Millionaire Unit. (I think?) Anyway WW1 / fliers. A documentary of sort? LOTS of good flying footage.

    Off to see TRs videos now. Thanks again, everyone :)

  39. Laura from AR on 01 Jan 2018 at 8:09 am #

    Happy New Year everyone. Looking forward to more of our favorite couple Arlo &Janis.

  40. Llee on 01 Jan 2018 at 8:19 am #

    Wow, TR…which did he get first? THe idea of the telescope or obtaining the large mirror and wondering what to do with it?

    cool stuff

    Jimmy- thanks for so much enjoyment!

  41. TruckerRon on 01 Jan 2018 at 11:27 am #

    Llee, I’m fairly positive that he had the idea before he discovered that such a large mirror was available. It’s certainly not one that you’d find every day on eBay!
