    Happy New Year Chips and all TODers. It’s going to be a roller coaster year for us all–going up when the president acts with his usual brilliance and down when the Congress pulls one stupidity after another. There is not group in the world that I’d rather go through it all with than this incredible community. Hope you are all feeling hangover free this am.

    Phone weirdness kept opening to Photo of the Year post at top of blog home page. Thought it was strange that I was the only one there. Way to start the year! LOL! πŸ˜€

      It’s not phone weirdness, Dudette. It always comes up first for me when I click on and I have a desktop. Many people believe it’s the new thread and keep commenting there. I have to go to the list on the right to get to the front page.

          GM Dudetter and JackieG.

          Wonderful 2015 tidings to you and all of TODville.

          I thought the same thing yesterday (only have a computer, no mobile device), but then I realized that it’s Chips’ (sneaky πŸ˜‰ ) way to GET TODville TO VOTE, dammit!!!

          We need to think of an equally tricky way to get Dems to vote in future elections, LOL.

            Happy New Year, Arapaho. I hope this year brings you good health and much happiness. We all have to savor every single moment of Barack Obama’s presidency because we won’t ever see its like again.

      January 1, 2015 at 9:02 am

      Not just you at all.
      It has done the same for me since early yesterday but since nobody said anything I figured it was my computer. Then, just now I saw VC’s post on yesterday’s page and Chips got me here.
      Now to go back and see which picture WON the photo contest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • January 1, 2015 at 9:04 am

        πŸ˜† It has everyone befuddled Vicki, no more stickies after today!

          January 1, 2015 at 9:14 am

          OK, I looked to see who won and tried to vote again and was informed that my vote had already been counted.
          As if I would even try to vote twice.
          No! I was attempting to see the winner.
          AND …….so…………….when will the suspense end?????????????????/

          • January 1, 2015 at 9:16 am

            I got that cranky message too Vicki, I felt like they were accusing me of being up to something πŸ™„

            Drumroll: the poll closes at 6:0 EST today, and then ….. the big announcement!1!1!

    Happy New Year, Chipsticks…TOD Family!!!

    Wherever, you are, in whatever language, wishing you a new year of health and happiness. Continue to remember that *HOPE* is better than cynicism; love builds where hate destroys. And don’t take even what seems the smallest of blessings for granted.

    Looking forward to another year in TOD Village with my TOD Family. ❀ ❀ ❀

  10. January 1, 2015 at 8:10 am

    Good morning to ALL. What will 2015 bring? We have no idea. Thankful I have this family to go through it together, whatever comes our way. Blessings wished for all here and for our First Family and our Second Family. πŸ™‚

      Looks like you don’t have a Danny-boy who chews everything in sight and sniff range.

      Many moons ago I had a blackberry for work, which I wasn’t thrilled about (seemed like being on a tether to me). I’ve got a portable PC that goes with me when I’m out (but rarely used). Not interested in paying additional dollars for smartphone service. A phone for emergencies is all I need.

      Happy New Year to you and your loved ones, SVS.

      Good to see you, cookemom.

      Saw that you heaped blessings on TODville earlier in the holiday season, thank you.

      Hope to see more of you this year, which I hope is the best ever for you and your family.

      I notice Mr. Cookemom hasn’t had to pull out the snowblower so far this year – hope he has enjoyed the break.

        January 1, 2015 at 9:39 am

        So far, so good, on the inactive snow blower. It rarely gets used anyway, because, though I may complain, I really do enjoy using my trusty, dusty old fashion shovel. It’s great for upper body strength, developing those FLOTUS-like arms, and having a good excuse for a hot TODdy afterwards.

        • 106 vcprezofan2
          January 1, 2015 at 9:47 am

          You know, I was trying to convince myself of the upper body exercise part while shoveling the one big snowfall we’ve had so far this year. Afterwards, I went and bought my first snow blower, which a) I had to struggle to get out of my car (that thing is hea-vy!) and b) has been sitting in the garage, still not fully assembled. Naturally, I’m not complaining about ‘b’. If I’d known that’s what it took to keep the snow away I would have bought one years ago.

    Each year, among the Christmas presents I get from Mr. G, are two big, different PBO/Michelle Obama calendars in glorious color–one for my office and one for the kitchen. This is the day I put them up and get to look forward to two beautiful new photos each month. That man really knows the way to my heart.

        Thanks jg! Someone posted it here a couple of years ago (wish I could remember who) and it’s stuck with me as the perfect start for the new year. Comes in handy throughout the year as well.

    My 2014 photo pic reminded me of an old quote, don’t recall by whom or about whom but it goes something like “He doth stride the narrow world like a collosus….”

    Eventually I expect the suspense will end.
    Until then, I wish all of us at TOD and those not lucky enough to be joining us here A Healthy Safe and Happy New Year.

  33. January 1, 2015 at 9:25 am

    LOL – I woke up this morning to the Catholic Church in my area ringing its bells to the tune of “It came upon a midnight clear.” πŸ™‚ Yesterday I woke up to “The First Noel.” I guess I will be going through this through January 6th. πŸ™‚

    Meanwhile, my music TV station “Sounds of the Season” continues to indulge in their 24/7 Christmas music fest – probably through mid-Jan when they switch to Easter/Lent/Spring music.

    No problem! I’m watching my Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy TV… Life is good. πŸ™‚
