Quotes for the ending of the year

Happy New Year
The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once. Albert Einstein
That explains why the dishwasher didn't break down when the Teasmade died.

However you celebrate (or not) stay safe tonight. Happy New Year everyone.

This is the final 'Quote for the Day' entry of 2009.

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.

T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"

Talking about tea .. I had been thinking .. who made the tea when you were/are both sick? .. and now with the Teasmade broken .. who is it that goes up and down those stairs with the heavy tea tray????? And our dishwasher has broken down .. how did you know!!!?? only does a bit of the cycle .. lazy sod .. and then gives up so we are looking at the specials in the local stores. It has been very very hot here for the past few days and yesterday, and again this morning, surrounding suburbs have lost electricity .. a power surge when the the air conditioning suddenly started up driven by the 30,000 odd holiday makers that have landed here since Xmas .. our lovely sea side village is not the same .. the noise, the traffic, the drunks, the higher prices .. don't get me started!! Anyway, tonight at about 9pm our time ... bugger bugger just when I wanted to tape Graham Norton ... darkness enveloped us ... but then to prove there is a God .. suddenly there was light once again and the power is back on, so I am able to say to you & MWNN .. Happy New Year and hope you both recover soon. Lots of love and kisses .. J & L

Our dishwasher is suffering from dementia, it thinks it's a floor washer. New one is arriving on 6th.

Tea making was easy. We have lots of portable kettles.

Sympathies at the invasion of drunken tourists. Hope to see you in 2010, if the boat is still afloat when we get to St Q., we may do the Somme again.

I've thoroughly enjoyed your daily quotes and have copied the ones that really appeal to me onto a document on my desktop so that I can pull one up at just the right moment. :)

I hope you have a safe and happy New Year's Eve and that 2010 finds you enjoying more Red Hat socials and in good health. :)

Thank you. I enjoyed doing the quotes (most of the time).

Red Hatting events are already crowding the diary.

Thanks. Red Hat wannabees (under 50s) wear pink hats so you could join the sisterhood.
