Welcome 2009!

By JoAnne Hewett | December 31, 2008 7:27 pm

The start of a new year can bring optimism – a chance to wipe the slate and get a fresh start.  And 2009 is already looking better; if nothing else, the US will get a President that can pronounce the word nuclear.  Personally, I am bidding good riddance to my Annus Horribilis and refuse to set any New Year’s resolutions.  I am unapologetic in my plan to be hedonistic and live life to the fullest (including lots of good science!).

To put us all in the proper year’s end party mood, here is some music.  Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Fats Domino on stage simultaneously, with pianos. Ron Woods and Carl Perkins, amongst others, are on back-up.
