Started out with sushi dinner. Then had a lovely evening at home with a sister-in-law and two friends. It was the most fun we've had on a NYE in awhile. Fire in the fireplace, wine, chocolate cheesecake (from Whole Paycheck -- very delicious). And the snow quietly fell, making the night sparkle.
Worthwhile quote of the day: "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."--Dwight D. Eisenhower
