A toast to the future
A toast to the past
A toast to Knights, far and near
Tonight I raise my glass

Hogmanay Celebrations
Laughter and good cheer
May you ring in the '09
With good friends and good beer

Here's wishing you more happiness
Than all my words can tell,
Not just alone for New Years Eve
But for all 2009 as well

Remember the words of T.S. Eliot
As New Year's bells are ringing
“Last year's words belong to last year's language...
To make an end is to make a beginning.”

And of Eleanor Roosevelt
As the Times Square Ball gleams
“The future belongs to those who believe
In the beauty of their dreams.”

While waiting to pen fresh ink
To our 2009 Moleskines
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

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 from Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal in Orlando! Captain Hook and his Curvy Crew rang in the New Year with the Doobie Brothers, Italian Tenors, Fireworks & Martini's at The Thirsty Fish! Rabbits are still dancing in our heads! Lady Allwinky begins another year of seducing a younger man...that is until May 23!
