Circus runaway

Last time we took our daughter to Cirque she was an embryo. She’s getting more out of it this time.

If you love Natalie Merchant

…you'll enjoy this great performance she did for TED. I saw her once, sometime around 1999 in the majestic Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver. I'll never forget it.

Huge presence onstage, yet so understated. And that voice.

Funny around 20:00 when she asks the audience to sit down and stop clapping.

For 2010, I'm with Lisa.

In these times of ridiculousness, I thought I'd turn to the Simpsons for some wisdom looking forward to next year. Glad I did. Lisa's got the winner when it comes to resolutions.

Homer Simpson: In 2010, I will finally get around to voting for President.
Marge Simpson: I'll try to be more assertive if it's okay with everyone else.
Bart Simpson: I plan to raise a family of skunks in Principal Skinner's car.
Lisa Simpson: I will make the world a colder, greener, jazzier place.
Grampa Simpson: Let's just make this the best 1933 we can.

Happy New Year all, may it keep you in good health and bring more goodness to our world.
