Happy New Year!

To celebrate New Year's Eve we like to go out with friends to the ski lodge at Snow Trails in north central Ohio.  The lodge provides a festive atmosphere to ring in the new year and we always have a great time listening to music and watching the revelers.  Different local bands are booked for the entertainment each year.  The Band Mad Gathering played a lively set of new and old rock classics right up till midnight. 

We found the only empty table right behind the drum kit giving us a unique perspective from which to watch the band.  Granted the sound was not the best at this position but it's not very often one can have a front row seat to watch the drummer ply his trade.  From my vantage point I could see the drummer's foot pedal and observe what symbols produced which crash.  Of course being only a few feet from the kit the drumming seemed to overpower the rest of the band's sound but with the set list made up from familiar favorites I have heard many times I thought it a cool treat to experience the music from this angle.

About this resolution business I would like to quote my father-in-law:  "I don't make new years resolutions because then I have to worry about keeping them all year." 
Good Luck in 2011.
