** Happy New Year to All **

#1 Post by BillMorrow » Mon Dec 31, 2012 1:41 am

The New Year tune most popular here in the USA and made so mostly by one fellow by the name of Guy Lombardo is "Auld Lang Syne" also translated as "Old Long Since" or, as Wikipedia puts it "The song's Scots title may be translated into English literally as "old long since", or more idiomatically, "long long ago",[4] "days gone by" or "old times"."

so i reprint the english translation below and direct you, dear readers, to the wikipedia page, should anyone be of a mind to, well, go and learn a bit.. :parrot:

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?
CHORUS: For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
CHORUS
We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.
CHORUS
We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.
CHORUS
And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auld_Lang_Syne

and with this bit of seasonal trivia i wish all a better new year than these few past years..
good health, good friends and warm thanks from

It might be too late to wish everybody a Happy New Year (anybody ever had the guts to do this in February?) But, since I just came back to the flock after a few years, here it goes:

Happy New Year, fellow Thinkpadders!

And thanks to Bill and the mods for creating and maintaining this amazing forum. :D

Happy new year to you too Bill. Frankly speaking, haven't heard the original version of the song, but i will get to it and i hope everything goes good and happy in this year. Not like the 2012. I am thinking of buying a new car in this year. Lets see what happens. And Happy new year to all of you as well :)

i should have updated my good wishes for a better 2014 than 2013 was if 2013 was as full of uncertainty for you all as it was for me..
"hope", now, seems like such an empty word when good wishes are so much more to the point..

Unfortunately-never been to enough big parties to hear the song that much... good to see the lyrics right there.

Happy New Years everybody, from the west coast of America.

A happy new year to everyone! May the year 2015 be filled with more insanity of stuffing the innards of a T500 into a T4x chassis, assorted mint condition finds to boggle and entice the Thinkpadding mind, and trivial topic inquiries that merely require the replacement of the CMOS battery.

To all your families and friends alike, I wish you the best, and a very happy new year.
