    Default New Years thoughts...

    If you are going out tonight for First Night/New Years...

    If you drink... don't drive.
    If you drive... don't drink.

    Have a designated driver (you can get him/her sloshed at a later date and return the favor! )

    If you are working tonight...

    May the tones be silent, the bells unrung, may the revelrers make it home safely to be overhung!

    Happy New Year!

    Thumbs up

    If you see a taxi cab tonight give them the thumbs up ... all the cab companies in our area are giving free rides to any party goer that needs it.

    And you young guys out there remember, if you drink, don't park ... accidents cause people

    In one of our neighboring towns the tow companies will tow your car home and give you a ride for free if you live within the city limits. And here they have a special bus on till 0300, to get people home

    Same here, the taxi cabs are free and a towing company will tow your vehicle for free.

    Is it a Texas thing or does anyone else have problems with idiots shooting guns up in the air to celebrate new year's?

    I remember running a far amount of those when I worked in Houston, years back. Call me a Yankee at heart, but I just don't see the point or logic.

    Nope. We have idiots here in CA that do the same thing. Ironically it is more predominant in the heavily populated urban areas.

    Actually found out that on New Year's Eve night someone was shooting up in the air and one of the bullets came down and went though my niece's window. Luckily no one was hurt.
