Happy New Year 2017 from Florida!

Fireworks in Gulfport 2015Happy New Year 2017 from Florida Everyone!

Wow, I can remember when the year 2000 seemed impossibly far into the distant future, as if we would never actually reach it…

Then came the year, the day when the BIG Millenium 2000 New Year’s Eve actually arrived. We ticked over into the 21st century.

Probably everyone remembers exactly where they were, who they were with and what they were doing on that memorial night. I was on Phuket Island, Thailand hanging out with Thai biker gang friends, dancing at a late-night disco and walking on beautiful Kata Beach. Where were you?

But wait! …Amazingly, that was already 17 years ago! Say What?!!! Already 17 years? Unbelievable. But true.

Yep, here we are already 17 years into the 21st century…and now only 3 years away from the big 2020. Wow. Bizarre how life just keeps rolling along…

Ok, enough reverie, let’s snap back to today’s reality…

Where are you celebrating New Year 2017?

Here in St Pete, Florida, I’ll be watching fireworks and joining the count down at St Pete’s municipal marina-side park along with family. Last time we did that, back in 2011/2012, it was absolutely freezing cold. Yikes! But this year promises to be an extremely mild 60F that night. Let’s see!

In any event, wherever you are in the world have a wonderful, exciting or chilled-out New Year’s Eve. See you in 2017!

cheers, Lash
