For over 60 years, staying awake until Midnight on New Year's Eve was absolutely essential. To kiss the girl friend or spouse, to dance the midnight dance, to hear and see the fireworks. Well, my spouse and I saw in the new year of 2013 by falling asleep on the couch. Her at 8:30 (must have been the wine at dinner) and me at 10:30 (that's just my regular bedtime) So I say "Well and Good." Welcome to the Grandpa and Grandma years.
