Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to our family, friends and blog visitors who are celebrating the appearance of 2007 over the next hours, starting with New Zealand and Fiji!

We're off to be kids again tonight! After NZ banned the sale of bangers and skyrockets, M hasn't lit one in years. So, we bought out the local supply of fireworks and we're making our way into the woods behind the house to fire off a barrage of rockets into the valley which holds Bad Karlshafen!

We're not sure who's more excited - M or J's sons!

We'll try not to start WWIII!

Happy New Year to you and all M and J readers too! No worries, you didn't start WW III - but Berlin was close.. I was terrified walking to the bus after midnight on my way to a party. For some reason the men (sorry guys but it seems to be a boom boom male thing!) in my neighborhood spent all their money on beer,rockets and other fireworks and decided to play war, attacking pedestrians, buses, taxis etc etc. Germans spend more than 100 million Euros for fireworks on New Years Eve... if they would only spend 1 million to shoo away bad spirits (the original purpose of the fireworks) and give the rest to the poor...many people would be so much happier! I surely would (and my bang boom terrified cat too LOL). Peace, love and happiness for 2007 for all of us!

Happy New Year M & J!! Hope to see U2 again this year!
I never heard a single firework 'bang' from the apartment, but did create a bit of a spark when I threatened the neighbours kids with an AK47 if they didn't shut the f--k up!
