Since there are only 20 minutes until 2007 in my time zone, I'll report back from 2007 to everyone who isn't sharing the same time zone and say what's it like in 2007. Any questions about the changes in the world shall be answered. :biggrin:

...and I'm currently in the 9th minute of year 2007. A Happy New Year to me, I guess. :tongue:

Too lazy because of staying at home or not falling off the end of time (at least not yet)? :biggrin:

Then Happy New Year to you. We have 5 more hours of waiting here, but it looks like I'm going to be home tonight too. You can wish us a happy new year when you wake up in the morning. :biggrin:

Ok, I have my collard greens and black eyed peas cooking. Mr Edge is also cooking collards and black eyed peas. This is his first time to ever cook or taste collards. Gosh I'm proud of him <sniff>

WHAT???

MIH, I'm shocked. :surprised

Don't forget

Black eyed peas = coins

Greens = dollars

You need both for prosperity in the New Year. :approve:

They're very tasty and extremely good for you.

I know, but most kids didn't like them, as far as I remember.

I never had collards until I started consulting in the south in the 1980s, but we had beet greens, turnip greens, spinach, Swiss chard, etc. Collards just filled in one more niche. Some greens, like spinach and Swiss chard seem to need cold weather to develop some real character, though. Love 'em!

Collards are great!

But then I like spinach, turnips, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and asparagus. :biggrin:

Parsnip and carrot are good too! :tongue2:

ok, crisis averted. I have my turnip and hamhock broth started on the stove. I can't believe the people at the supermarket didn't know what hot pepper vinegar was. shees! Blackeyed peas are underway as well.
