New Year's and Taiwan

First of all, nice pic of the fireworks going off at Taipei 101 on drudgereport:

in fact, the main yahoo news photos page has Taipei 101 at the very top:

Secondly, was watching the rose parade and China Air won the best international float again. Not sure how many years in a row that is. Also taipei first girls’ marching band was in the parade. After watching an endless line of marching bands in dowdy uniforms, it was nice to see Taiwan represent with an all-female marching band(only one in the world that anyone knows of) wearing short skirts and go-go boots. :smiley:

I just wish they actually had a HOLIDAY here this “holiday season”… like they used to.
