    My New Years Eve - worked until 11AM, grabbed a couple last minute goodies once I got home. Daughter had 2 of her buddies over for a sleepover (Yep...3 16 year old girls!). They were well behaved.....

    Ordered a pizza for supper - watched Canada beat the USA (again! ) in the World Jr. Hockey tournament, then watched Toronto beat Boston in NHL hockey.....indulged in some adult beverages and turned on whatever channel it was to watch the ball drop. Actually slept in New Years Day for a change!!!!!

    Here we are Jan 2 - and no book purchases......yet.

    "Kanye has a great ear for talent. This Paul McCartney guy gonna be huge."

    "Who is Paul McCartney? He boutta blow up thanks to Kanyer!!!"

    "This is why i love Kanye for shining light on unknown artists."

    "I don't know who Paul McCartney is, but Kanye is going to give this man a career w/ this new song!!'"

    The younger generation is hopeless. Wait til they grow up and are in charge...

    Just who the hell is, Kanye and why is he talking about one of the most prolific song writers in music history? More important, why does it matter what he says?

    So, Centipede just put The Shaft up for preorder ($85) and Subterranean had the new McCammon horror novel posted on their site ($125 for the limited, $300 for the lettered). I think I might have to buy both books. 2015 is already an expensive year.

    Kanye West is a rapper whose most famous acheivement is having a child with Kim Kardashian. He and Sir Paul released an internet duet and KW's fans went gaga over it. But, thankfully, the youngsters who did not know who PM was are probably not our future leaders. I hope.

    I rent an apartment, and the mailbox is not conducive to magazines. I really hate it when the mailman folds my magazines and stuffs them in there; now CD #72 has a permanent crease and scratches on the cover. Grrr. What's really annoying is the door is two inches away from the mailbox; it would take five more seconds to open the door and toss magazines by my door.

    Marduk I live in an apartment as well. I don't know if this would work in your circumstances but I feel it helped me to make sure I was home for a delivery by my regular carrier. When I received my box I thanked him warmly for all of the packages he delivers for me and told him I know I'm putting more strain on him than the other residents in this small building. I shoved a $20 bill into his hand, which he tried to refuse but I wouldn't let him. I thanked him again sincerely and have never had an issue unless it's another person that delivers. Sometimes I think I get a little special treatment as well, and we're always personable with each other whenever we cross paths.

    Like most of us, they're probably not too appreciated at work, and going a bit out of my way to make my carrier's day a little brighter seems to have helped.
