BEFORE THE CLOUD COVER HIT....


 Happy New Year, everyone!  May this be a much better year for us all than the last.

This of course is a shot of the Space Needle (hand-held) here in Seattle around 10 p.m. There was a spectacular light show with fireworks, music, and special effects at midnight....but any decent shots from Queen Anne Hill were next to impossible to catch given the low-lying clouds that rolled in. Mind you, other local photographers with equipment much fancier than mine and good tripods were able to capture some of the show from various vantage points.

The Needle is pink because of T-Mobile, who sponsored the event and whose color is this Pepto-Bismol pink.

YANKEE IN NICE

 Edit: pastis is a licorice-flavored alcoholic drinksimilar to Greek ouzo. My favorite drink as it is for many people in this area. No more ...
