New Year’s Eve, Fast Forward

I got a huge laugh from a friend back in the 70’s when I told him I had recorded (taped!) the ball dropping in New York’s Times Square.  Re-running “the moment” was not at all the norm back then.

But, it has been my habit for many years to record whatever show appeals to me on New Year’s Eve. And, miracle of miracles, I can record MORE THAN ONE SHOW! What will they think of next????!!!!

The next morning we have scrambled cheesy eggs, grilled Kielbasa (I think that’s a Pittsburgh thing), hash browns, toast, fruit and coffee and spend a lot of time watching the previous night’s antics.

We celebrate the first day of the New Year, rather celebrate the last day of the old year.

We spend the rest of the day watching dog shows, parades and football games. And we try to eat “good-luck” food from many nations and religions!  Pork, sauerkraut, black-eyed peas, creamed herring, etc.

Even if my LO doesn’t remember all these New Year’s day traditions, I do. And it’s fun “re-introducing” them to him.  Keep your traditions, when possible, make new ones when it’s not!

Happy Almost New Year!

  1. Hi Jane, just read the article in the Daily Progress. Congrats! Don’t know if you remember me, I was in your show several times, talking about Meals on Wheels and Alzheimer’s. I was the nurse coordinator for Alzheimer’s research and the Memory Disorders Clinic at UVA. I also was a caregiver 4 times, Mom, Mom in law, dad in law and aunt. Two had AD, one had vascular and the other had a mixed dementia. Fun times! If I can offer any assistance to you or others let me know! Happy New Year!


    1. Hi Paula, Thanks for contacting me. Yes! I would love to talk to you, since you have such a lot of experience with dementia patients. Please give me a call when convenient for you. 412-855-4112
