Welcome to the world, 2011. And a very cool look at the 7 billion of us

And a glorious Happy New Year to all of you out there who are reading this blog. Let me start the year by thanking you ever so much for coming here, whether it’s every day, once a week, or only when no other websites but mine are loading and you’re bored and there’s nothing on TV.
I truly appreciate all your support; little by little this blog is building an audience, and I thank you for it.

Spent the last night of 2010 in a pretty quiet way; I think New Year’s Eve becomes less important to you as you get older. As a kid, it’s like the greatest; you get to stay up until midnight, maybe have a few sips of champagne, and it’s a total fun night.
Now? Eh. 2010 was a year of serious upheaval in my life. In a lot of ways I was happy to see it end. Went to the movies with my Mom and stepfather (thoughts on what we saw, the fantastic Coen Brothers movie “True Grit,” tomorrow), and then watched Dick Clark and the hilarious Kathy Griffin-Anderson Cooper duo on CNN. They truly are great together.
Now spending a few minutes, as I always seem to do in the late hours of New Year’s Eve, watching a “Honeymooners” rerun on WPIX here in New York. Such a classic show.

Very much looking forward to the outdoor hockey game Saturday (moved to 8 p.m. because of the threat of rain in Pittsburgh), such a great New Year’s tradition the NHL has started. Hope your ’11 gets off to a good start as well.

**This, I thought, was very cool. A National Geographic ad talking about the breakdown of the 7 billion people on Earth, where we’ve been, and where the world is going. Definitely worth 3 minutes of your time:
