    Sounds good. I will probably pop in before it turns new year for most of your Americans, but I can't make any promises on sobriety!

    Yay!!! Thanks Greg!! Kurdt will be bringing the Scotch and various brews from the UK. Perhaps Red Rum will pop in with some fine Dutch beer. I''l bring the hats and noise makers.

    So for the "over the ponders" what time should we begin the merriment?

    I'll be home, so I'll check in, but my wife and I likely will watch a movie. I'm an hour east of Eastern, and my daughter will be up before seven on New Year's day, so I'll be in bed early.

    Watching a movie every two weeks or so (a little more often during the holidays) is the only TV we watch. We usually watch mysteries, but, tentatively, we plan to watch ET. I think we're the only two people on the planet that have yet to see it

    You know I'll be there. I keep wanting to get into the sherry but I guess I can wait. Beer will have to do for now. brb

    Hmm...what to bring? Chili relishes for the hot-heads, and milder green-tomato/jalapeno salsa for the wimps. Chips for dipping... I'd make my chili-marinaded grilled jumbo tiger shrimp, but there are too many PF'ers and I'm not wealthy.

    I'd have to tone it down to do Cajun. They are so hot, my cousin's cheeks and forehead get flushed, but they are so good that she won't stop eating them until they're gone. If they don't raise a sweat on your scalp, I screwed up and made them too mild.

    Okay hot is fine. I have plenty of beer and tums. BTW I found a place that sell/sold Molson Gold; they were out. I will find some somewhere.

    Thank goodness you remembered! My Vietnamese friend finally got me to try a dessert that is made with blackeyed peas (Chè đậu trắng). I really had to get my courage up before taking a bite - it wasn't bad, though. The peas are mixed with rice and coconut milk, so you really only taste coconut.

    It looks like this:

    Just so I know what to bring, will the whirlpool/hottub be with or without bathing suits for the party? :uhh:

    I have pomegranate vodka to make pomegranate martinis. I can make the rum drinks too.

    I'm afraid there may be no New Year's Evo this year, I know everyone Sunday was looking forward to New Year's Evo, but I don't think I'll be joining. Hope the rest of you have a great time!
