No, Not New Year's in Times Square

I saw this last week and knew this would be my New Year's post ...
Countdown Cod and Fireworks ... Chatham's answer to Times Square at New Year's Eve is Countdown Cod©*. Designed and built by Richard Clifford, the sculpture is a true work of art and a codfish with a personality. The cod will be hoisted 60 feet above the Oyster Pond parking lot on a crane at about 11:45 pm. Five minutes later, the cod will be illuminated by 20 halogen lights planted in its body. And at 11:59 pm on the dot, Countdown Cod© will be lowered to the ground at the precise speed of one foot per second. When the cod completes its descent at midnight, the fireworks display will commence over Oyster Pond to welcome in the New Year. You have to see this!


Be safe and warm tonight ... but mostly safe! The old canard, that "New Year's Eve is for
Amateurs" has a sage element of truth. 2010 is going to be a great year for our family ... May
it be one for you and yours as well ...

No one knows how many humdingers
there are in a lollapalooza."
