Should old acquaintance be forgot…

Posted by David Keelan on Monday, January 1, 2007

Auld Lang Syne (days of long ago) is simply one of my favorite songs.  The melody expresses the sentiments of the lyrics in a manner that I have never found in any other song.

Many people don’t remember the lyrics.  If you are one of those people I think you would enjoy the five minutes it would take you to read them carefully.  If you do so you will most certainly notice it is a drinking song.  You will also note it expresses some of the most wonderful sentiments, and quite possibly come to agree with me that no other song is as well suited to New Year celebrations.

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne (days of long ago)?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

It is a wonderful tribute to old friends and to days of long ago.  Especially those that we may have forgotten through the year we just passed through and the year we just entered.

So dear readers of all possible persuations and to my fellow bloggers I thank you very much for a wonderful year, and especially the often times lively conversation (it is all for the right reasons).

Please know that I pray that this year will be generous to you and your loved ones.  Most of all I hope that you will always be mindful of your friends and the days that you have yet to share with them.

Happy 2007!

    And Happy New year to you and your family as well, David!

    And also to all others out there in the blogosphere!

  2. s a dark side to the availability of digital content, and that.

    Instant availability is what exactly is triggering ebook piracy too.

    Trading invites a number of sites is extremely frowned upon in the exclusive Bit – Torrent community because it allows
    anti-piracy groups to infiltrate private trackers with
    less effort.
