I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and to thank you once again for visiting my blog. Today, I am finally going to the movies to see The King's Speech, and after that, I will watch all the football bowl games with my husband. The Tostitos Bowl is being played nearby in Glendale (Oklahoma v. Connecticut). But for those of a more literary bent, there are interesting posts on Austen Authors today about New Year's traditions from around the world and one groan-worthy pun. I like the Dutch tradition of starting the new year by eating donuts because a Dunkin' Donuts just opened up a half mile from here. Oh, I'm bad. No matter what you do, have fun, be safe.
