    My wife and kiddo are heading out to a New Years gathering at our old neighbours place. It'll be a good time. Food, drink, bonfire. All outdoors and in a shop. Seeing as I'm a sack of flu bag illness still. I've opted out. That and it's already snowed atleast an inch with another one on the way tonight so I'll be up at 2:30am plowing to ring in my new year.

    Sam. I never met my wife until I was 27 I think. I spent a good deal of my youth single, had many times/years where I wondered if I'd ever meet someone to share my life with. All things in good time my friend.

    Eating pounded rice cakes is a part of the New Year's thing here. You can buy machine made ones, but I go out to a friend's old house in the mountains and we party with a bunch of people and make the cakes in the traditional way. The special rice gets steamed in three tired boxes over a water urn above an open fire. Then each box of rice when ready gets dumped into a big log that has had the top hollowed out and everybody takes turns pounding the rice into soft elastic type cakes that get used in various dishes over days and weeks because it doesn't spoil. Lots of smoke and steam and people enjoying the spirits in a glass and wherever else they might find them. Old traditional ways are good to keep alive. Being way out in the countryside seems to enhance the enjoyment. Adults and kids, a good time is had by all. We pounded 18 buckets pf rice, had the fire burning for ten hours. Lots of people went home with their mochi.

    Dont eat the red Mochi with bits of finger nail in it.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Sure was a shit of a year though.

    At least we're all still above ground as far as I know so it could have been worse I suppose, got to be thankful for that.

    Quite a few didn't see it out, there's a couple missing.
