Australia is just about to reach 2011 and then it'll be 2011 in Holland then in the UK then the other side of the Atlantic etc so it's time to say


to you guys and gals

And perhaps as with the thread James started for Christmas greetings this thread can serve for others to exchange messages about the coming Year.

I know we won't all have a good year, so instead my wish is that everyone will be able to cope with whatever the New Year brings their way.

The Best to each of you for the New Year. My wish is a healthier New Year for 2011 with great joy and friends.

You guys are the best thanks to each of you. Havine been on the board has been a great blessing to me for the year of 2010. I have met many of you during the year and you welcomed me to your homes.
It is my turn to pay back for the great joy you have given me.  On April 15 I will be hosting the GFMPH in Baton Rouge.  For you new guy it is a chance for us to gather and get acquainted for 3 days.  My home will be the heaquarters.  Worried had the first two in Rochester NY.  Last October we talked about having a southern gathering.  We will eat, drink and be merry.  There will be a bit of a twist to this stpings gathering.  If you bring your wife, my wife has arranged for a cathering spot for them and is already working on the plans for the ladies. (Southern style)  I hope that many of you will consider attending.  More on this to be posted very soon so start planning either you road trip or looking for cheep flights.

Happy New Year or
Amature Night as I like to call it... Another good reason to stay home and not get run over by drunks.
Dallas to Baton Rouge
Route:440.2 miles, 6 hr 21 min
6 hr 24 min in current traffic conditions
hmmm Maybe I should wait a bit for the traffic to get another three minutes longer. Got the above info from BING Maps....
Its in the back on my mind to attend. Maybe LES will see this and want to car pool. Maybe we could cruise together in his new Caddy.. Or we might have to go in my new smokemobile... Oooops meant new Silverado where smokers are allowed.

Happy New Year to those who are already there and to those of us who are approaching it, as the earth turns. May everyone's new year be healthy and happy.

Goodbye 2010, and good riddance.  I'm hoping for better health news in 2011 and wish the same to all.  Whatever the new year brings, what we've already been through will have prepared us to deal with it, and hopefully conquer any adversity.  Happy New Year to all.  Live life to the fullest ever day.

Happy 2011 to each brother and sister here. 2010 was a long, painful, rough year for me, and I hope I am all behind that. Looking forward to a year where no further surgeries are anticipated or expected. Hoping my own PSA is being held in check. Hoping to well enough to be employable one day again. But one step at the time.

May those that leak- dry up

May those that are limp - harden up

May those with PSA tests looming - may they all be zeros forever

And thanks for all the wonderful support here, and to Peter, always my hero for having this great place to be. I will remember you when I win the Mega or the Powerball. Will make sure HW is well endowed.
