Things to remember as you ring in the new year:
* Watch all those references to "this year" (in addition to "this month") in copy. They'll have to be changed to "last year" or "in 2003."
* 2004 is a leap year, so make sure to factor that in when reporters are counting days. So, as of Jan. 1, there will still be 365 days to break your resolutions.
* And, for good measure, the lyrics to "Auld Lang Syne," with some definitions to make sense of it all.
We twa hae run about the braes,Who knew that was about plucking daisies from the hilltops? Better yet, "Auld lang syne" roughly translates to "Times gone by." (Why don't I know more Scottish song that are good to drink to? Any suggestions?)
And pou'd the gowans fine
Happy New Year's!
