Robbie Williams performed live in London to see in the New Year.
A poor lacklustre mediocre performance.
Not a patch on Frank Sinatra classic live at Royal Albert Hall where he had edge.
Excellent sausages from butcher in Heighington.
Excellent red wine from Melissonas Hill vineyard.
1 million people rocked it like a hurricane last night. — Rudolf Schenker
Germany saw the New Year in with the Scorpions playing live in front of the Brandenburg Gate.
I am hoping some kind soul will upload the entire concert in HD to youtube.
Spectacular firework display on the Thames in the centre of London, even more spectacular than last year.
London once again puts Sydney in the shade!
I once quite surprised to see fireworks shooting out of Big Ben synchronised with the chimes of midnight. At first I thought I was seeing things!
An estimated 250,000 people were on the street watching the display, some had been there since early afternoon to ensure a prime spot.
Happy New Year everyone!

As 2011 is washed away by the passing of time, in comes 2012.
Sorry Sir my dear Jesus , we came to you with, black gown
Heart is wounded and eye in tears …..
Baghdad and the tears and crying
Slaughtered Vgraleom Baghdad to pay tax on the withdrawal of occupation
… … Let him hear the whole world that we have received New Year with a barrage of bleeding, not trees Birth
We gave school children dead booby, not gifts from Santa Cruz
We constructed and consolation black and not the establishment of the celebrations and dinner turkey
….. This is our Iraq and this is what it was
– Lina Dawood Al Ashorea
Few words, but very moving.
Lina is in Iraq, an eyewitness to the descent into Hell.
If you are at Christmas Mass on Christmas Eve, please ask that they spare a minute’s silence for the people of Iraq as their country descends into Hell.
Since 2000 London has made the point of having the world’s best firework display. 2011 was no exception.
2011 was even more spectacular than previous years. For 2011, for the first time, it was set to music.
