The last day of 20-12. Well that went fast. It is amazing how time really does fly.

It is really quite amazing how it is celebrated. Obviously, this is one of a few global holiday's.

Think of all the things we overcame this year, the biggest, the end of the world on December 21st. It came and went just like Y2K, but it did cause some fun commotion.

So in a rating of one to ten, what were the biggest items of 2012, according to the popularity vote.

1 - The Apple i Phone 5 (Yes, the phone beat the election of a President)
2 - The Election
3 - $656 Mega Million Drawing
4 - Hunger Games Movie
5 - Honey Boo Boo
6 - 50 Shades of Grey
7 - One Direction, the band.
8 - Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen
9 - "Gangnam Style," a music video featuring the infectious, meme-ready dance moves of a little-known South Korean rapper named Psy
10 - The Anniversary of the Titanic.

So there you go. 2012 in a nut shell. Wow, really? This would explain a lot.

Have a safe and Happy New Year!

Happy day after Christmas.

The next big day is, less than a week away. New Years. Yep, another year gone by just that quick.

Of course the most commonly sung song for most of the U.S. is Auld Lang Syne. If you did not know the song is an old Scottish song that was first published by the poet Robert Burns in the 1796.
 
Burns transcribed it from Scottish after he heard it sung by an old man from the Ayrshire area of Scotland, Burns's homeland. It is often remarked that Auld Lang Syne is one of the most popular songs that nobody knows the lyrics to.
 
Auld Lang Syne literally translates as "old long since" and means "times gone by." The song asks whether old friends and times will be forgotten and promises to remember people of the past with fondness, "For Auld Lang Syne, we'll take a cup o' kindness yet."
 
But it was bandleader Guy Lombardo, and not Robert Burns, who popularized the song and turned it into a New Year's tradition. Lombardo first heard Auld Lang Syne in his hometown of London, Ontario, where it was sung by Scottish immigrants. When he and his brothers formed the famous dance band, Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians, the song became one of their standards. Lombardo played the song at midnight at a New Year's eve party at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City in 1929, and a tradition was born. After that, Lombardo's version of the song was played every New Year's eve from the 1930s until 1976 at the Waldorf Astoria. In the first years it was broadcast on radio, and then on television. The song became such a New Year's tradition that Life magazine wrote that if Lombardo failed to play 'Auld Lang Syne,' the American public would not believe that the New Year had really arrived.

Don't forget to start off the New year right with our Polar Bear Plunge January 5th. http://www.wrjo.com/2013-Polar-Bear-Plunge/14767811

‘twas 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"this is heaven." declared a small boy. "we're spending Christmas at God's house."
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"come now my children, let me show you around."
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."

All you can say about something like this is that, animals are Amazing!

Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestseller, The Elephant Whisperer, bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003.




























On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died. He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons and numerous elephants. Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved man-friend. A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House.


 


























Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence ’s passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked in such an organized way: Walking slowly - for days - Making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house.
So, how after Anthony’s death, did the reserve’s elephants — grazing miles away in distant parts of the park — know? “A good man died suddenly,” says Rabbi Leila Gal Berner, Ph.D., “and from miles and miles away, two herds of elephants, sensing that they had lost a beloved human friend, moved in a solemn, almost ‘funereal’ procession to make a call on the bereaved family at the deceased man’s home.” “If there ever were a time, when we can truly sense the wondrous ‘interconnectedness of all beings,’ it is when we reflect on the elephants of Thula Thula. A man’s heart’s stops and hundreds of elephants’ hearts are grieving. This man’s oh-so-abundantly loving heart offered healing to these elephants, and now, they came to pay loving homage to their friend.”
Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years!  But yet they knew where they were going.  The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects honouring their friend who'd saved their lives - so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything.  Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back.

WOW!
