Ringing in the New Year

Early for you. Late for me. Mortar blasts and fiery rockets are already exploding all over Amsterdam and a huge throng has gathered in the city's Dam central plaza to greet the midnight countdown. Not me. I'm in a hotel overlooking this canal, dusted by snow earlier today. We had a family dinner over an Indonesian-influenced "rice table meal," partially pictured below, and I'm not long for the world. (Aromatic rice and the toasted-coconut-red-pepper condiment is food enough for the gods.)

Here's to a happier 2009. Thanks for the 160,000 or so comments on the Arkansas Blog since we began. The line is open on another year.
