2016 – Nothing good is to write about that year (at least from my perspective) and so I will not dwell on all the sad, bad and unpleasant things – they came and went and now I want to leave those behind and just concentrate on the New Year ahead.
JS and I wish you all a better, happier, healthier and safer
And to put you into the right mood tonight I like to give you all a little musical gift – one of the most famous musical pieces for this occasion
AULD LANG SYNE
so beautifully (and heart rendering) performed by the Band of the equally famous Royal Scots Dragoon Guards
I just know that, just like me, quite a number of you will need a handkerchief and I also know of at least one friend in Canada who will actually need 2 of them, – yes, this music is especially for you, Rebecca!
And if THE PIPES are not for you, you might like Rod Stewarts rendition live from beautiful Stirling Castle
or you, who still remember the 1940 film “Waterloo Bridge” (starring Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor), might enjoy listening to Michael Buble’ and Kylie Minogue’s version of AULD LANG SYNE.
Whatever – come midnight lets join hands through cyberspace and hope and pray for a more peaceful and happier NEW YEAR.
