Last day of 2006 and first day of 2007

Every year on 31st of December, what do we do? We either go see a musical concert, or go to a restaurant that has a "one-man show", or rent a chalet in the mountains surrounded by snow, play our own beat to dance on and eat, or just go to a friend's place and also eat, watch local TV programs, call but never get on line to actually win anything. As a matter of fact, I stayed up till 4 am on my own waiting for the draw, but, alas, did not win.

In Lebanon that same night starting at 11:55 pm for a whole 15 minutes, people start shooting guns, fireworks, red dots flying in the skies, even plates flying in the air and breaking up on the asphalt. I know I almost broke a car window!

Although Michel Hayek's predictions and Maguy Farah astrology's measures do not promise 2007 to be a good year, I believe it is up to us everyday to make a choice to make things better for us and those around us.

Wish you a good health, for you and those you love, success in your studies/career/business, and happiness!

May 2007 be the year Lebanon has a real peace, far more reasonable politicians, and faith instead of religion.

Cheers to you!

Liliane
