Happy New Year!

Hi everyone!

I hope that you all had a fantastic Christmas! I certainly did, the best for a long time. Food was a mix of all sorts, including a lot of stuff where we looked through cookery books and said "Hey, I want to do this!" Great fun. We also had the best roast pork ever, with the perfect crackling - ooh yeah...

The kids loved their stuff - Spore is now the family favourite PC game, closely followed by the mayhem of 4 player Mario Wii.

We had a sort of white Christmas - while the rest of the country, indeed the rest of the county, was digging itself out of snow drifts, we just had a dusting from time to time. Today we have around 2 inches of snow, the most so far this winter.

So, what does 2010 have in store? I have no idea, but I have a feeling that it is going to be good.

Resolutions? I don't do resolutions, but I do have a few things that I would like to do this year...

What are they?

Why should I tell you?

Oh, you think that I was about to spill the beans, this being my blog and all and I just started talking about them. Oh OK, as it is you, but don't go telling anyone else, OK?

I guess the main thing is that I want to play guitar in public again. I am going to work on a short set and then ask a musical friend of mine if I can play in the interval of one of his gigs. That way I don't have to play for an entire evening, but I can see if I can pull it off. If it goes well I can expand the set, if it is a disaster, well never mind! Of course, I will post clips here as I go to get some feed back before I go and stand in front of a live audience - if I can't do it in front of a camera there will be no point attempting a gig will there?

It looks like we might be getting a new dog this year too - Mrs RC says we need another dog, and my resistance is weakening. We shall see how things work out.

Well I think that is about it for now - morning break is over, so I had better get back to work!

Bye for now!

Welcome back to the net. Hope the holidays treated you well. Good luck with getting a gig. I'm sure you'll be topping the charts in no time.

As for getting another pooch, if momma wants another one, you know the saying: Resistance is futile.

Happy New Year. I'm not too optimistic about the new year. I'm looking for adventure and I honestly don't believe that it will take place this year.

Good luck with the live performace.

Well, congratulations on the happy things this new year had brought you :)

And I am anticipating those ROCK VIDEOS (MTV class please) soon from you. lol

How many dogs your family have? Is there such thing as having not enough dogs? What you vodoo people do to them? Over the fire or into stew? Kidding :)
