2016 is about to end, and we will usher in 2017 … so a toast to you – my readers and those in your life.

To peace, good health, and smiles.

To good people in our lives and the goodness throughout the world

To the kindness and generosity that people are willing to share.

To the people here in this WordPress community that bring me joy.

Salute! Yamas! Proost! Skål! Sei gesund! A la votre! Şerefe! Gān bēi! Terviseks! Kippis! Salut! Cheers! … and take your pick below. (Of course, I want to know your choice). 🙂

  1. Happy New Year! I was expecting to like the quirky bottle band best, but the bagpipe was such a delightful surprise! If we all get involved in our communities and do small things with great love–ala Mother Teresa–then we can help make 2017 a good year.

  2. Hello Frank, Happy New Year, from the land where 2017 is less than 8 1/2 hours away. In my wee corner of this land where it’s the middle of summer, the temperature has just dropped alarmingly, the wind has risen and the rain set in ………… I guess it will be a quiet night on the streets tonight! Surprisingly I quite liked Andre’s offering (who couldn’t love a woman puffing air into the pipes dressed in a frothy blue meringue?) but I loved the bottles and the acapella group.

    • Pauline,
      Cheers to you as you approach the 2016-t2017 transition. After all, I posted this early enough for the Kiwis and the Aussies! Thanks for proving my efforts. 🙂

      Whereas you are in summer, we had a few bursts of snow overnight and this morning, but temps are going to be above freezing the next few days.

      Thanks for watching all three videos – and hey – the pipes are getting a good reaction here. Happy New Year to you … party on with the two party animals.

  3. The bottle band was a hoot… and they are all so serious (well, save one but he basically gets the “fart” job…) however, I am partial to bagpipes… and played by a woman to boot! Lovely!
    Happy, happy new year to you and Mrs. Right Angle! xoxo

  4. I could never choose among those videos–they’re all perfect in their own ways! But I do thank you for introducing me to the bottle band. Have a wonderful start to the new year, Frank! (We are . . . . Penn State!)

    • Kerry,
      Cheers to you for watching all three. Yes, each is special in a different way. The bottle band is simply a hoot! … Cheers to your 2017 … and may for Nittany Lions roar to your delight.


  5. Happy New Year to you, Frank! I loved ALL of the musical selections, each so different and unique. Straight No Chaser touched my love of song, Andre Rieu touched my heart, but the Bottle Band touched my funny bone! There’s room for everyone at that table – have a wonderful year ahead, my friend. 🙂
