All Good Things...

I just want to say first off, that I am sorry folks, but I am getting comment spam on my journal. I have decided to turn on the word verification, so this wont happen anymore.

Back to are Regular scheduled programming!

I did my final early morning shift yesterday, and all I can say now is Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! Well actually until January 8th, but I usually open the desk on Sunday's, and that is why I Hardly ever post on Sunday. I have to work this evening on the Eve of the New Year, but I get off at 9:30. Well sooner than that, because most people will probably be getting there drink, and there groove on (I did one year ... BOTH). The drinking thing will never happen again. This year, I will be either spending time with my family or chillin' in my bedroom listening to some music, and or watching Dick Clark's New Years Eve show. I thought Dick Clark was immortal, you know because he never seemed to age after awhile. Then all of a sudden I wake up one morning to hear he had a stroke. Now Ryan Seacrest is co-hosting the show with him. I am a bit disappointed, well the correct word would be sad, because now its like, first the cast of the Original Series is passing on, Eddie Guerrero, Dick Clark will pass eventually. Its like everything or everyone that I watched as a child is gone (can't forget Mr. Rogers, even the Dunkin Donuts guy). Okay Maybe I am getting a little morbid here. I was just leading to this statement, "All Good things must come to and End".

2005 is ending in less than 24 hours. It is the end of what has been a devastating year in New Orleans. Many people lost there lives, and the ones that didn't lost there homes and pets. Many families had to be relocated. If anything good is to come out of this, we the people need to learn from what has happened this year and put our experiences to good use. Stop using second rate materials to build things. The cheapest bidder is definitely not the best. In the end someone's life is an expensive price.

2006 is nearly upon us, and I am hoping good things for everyone. I hope that the displaced residents from Hurricane Katrina, can get back on there feet, no matter where they are. I hope that the senseless violence of war and terrorism will end. I hope that we as a nation can get together and find some peace and happiness, and not think of just ourselves, but others also. With endings there are new beginnings, and I hope that when this year end it will give the gift of bliss to 2006.
