I wish you all a safe New Year's Eve...
In Puerto Rico we are in the middle of the season's festivities. New Year's Eve is traditionally spent partying and making a lot of noise when midnight arrives... with firecrackers and, in the countryside, fire arms. Because each year so many innocent lives are lost from falling bullets, the Puerto Rican police has started a very strong safety campaign island-wide on television and elsewhere.
This sign is up at our nearby toll booth. It says: 'This Christmas give a gift of the future! Not one more bullet into the air!'
I'll let you know tomorrow morning if it was a quieter New Year's Eve!

Les deseo un Feliz Ano Nuevo sano y salvo...
Aqui en Puerto Rico estamos en la mitad de las festividades Navidenas. Tradicionalmente se celebran la llegada del Ano Nuevo con festejar y hacer el mayor ruido posible ... con cohetes y, algunas en el campo, con armas de fuego. A causa de la perdida de muchos inocentes cada ano por la bajada de balas tiradas al aire, el policia de Puerto Rico ha iniciado una fuerte campana por toda la isla en television, radio, etc.
Aqui tiene un rotulo en el peaje cerca de nuestra casa. Les informare despues si fue un Ano Nuevo mas quieto!

Happy New Year, Diane, and may all good things come your way in 2007 and forever after! Hope the suppression of the firearms was successful and no one was injured.

Annie... Thank you, the very same back to you!

Sharri... Yes, I only heard fireworks last night and not firearms. Have a wonderful 2007!
