Just a quick post to wish everyone a happy 2015!

My husband Bill and I had a pretty tame New Year’s Eve. We sat at home, listened to music, and when it got close to midnight, watched the fireworks set off by Germans. I am usually ready for the holidays to be over by January 2 and this year is no exception. Had we been stateside for New Year’s, I’m sure I would have tried to stay up to watch Elton John’s performance on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve. As it was, we were mostly entertained by old Van Morrison albums.

Elton John sings “I’m Still Standing” on New Year’s Eve 2014.

Looks like Elton still has it. I would have liked to have seen this, but at least there’s YouTube.

I see Taylor Swift was also in attendance.

And so was Meghan Trainor, who’s “All About the Bass”.

Fergie was also at the party to sing “L.A. Love”. This music makes me feel ancient.

I hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve celebration and a tranquil New Year’s Day. I am hoping for a lot of fun travel in 2015 and, perhaps, the discovery of some new music. I’ve had good luck with street musicians in Europe. Next week, I hope to have something more substantial to post. For now, I think I need to sit around and listen to more music.
