Kimberly - Same to you. Stay safe.

Maryann - Well...the Kindle was already here. These were new. But I still want one - I just don't know WHICH one!

The Golden Eagle said...

The miner rescue was amazing.

Happy New Year to you! :)

Shirley said...

Ditto on the Rescued Miners. That was great to watch.

Sheila Deeth said...

Neat list. Brings lots of memories to mind.

Carol Kilgore said...

Shirley - I missed the first few, but saw the rest.

Sheila - And now we have a new year to fill with memories. Here's to good ones!

Arlee Bird said...

Sounds like the rundown from CNN. I probably don't keep up with the news like I should.

Happy New Year!

Arlee - I watched some of Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin, but I didn't see the official CNN rundown. I am, however, a news junkie. I'm cutting way down on that in 2011. It will be difficult, but I've been practicing and made some progress. Happy New Year!

Teresa - Thanks :) And the same to you.

Helen Ginger said...

Definitely the rescued miners. That was captivating and exhilarating. Was there a Celebrity of the Month? Who was December? Santa?

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Carol Kilgore said...

Helen - Santa wins! Hope your 2011 is fantastic.

notesfromnadir said...

Good list. But don't forget the Kindle! LOL

Carol Kilgore said...

Lisa - I didn't forget, but it wasn't new this year, so I didn't include it. They might have upgraded, but it's been around a year or more now, I think.

Hope you have a wonderful 2011.

Patricia Stoltey said...

One of the top ten things in my 2010 was meeting a wonderful new group of bloggers who bring joy to my life. May we all find even more joy in 2011.

Stephen Tremp said...

I like that a lot of politicians are being thrown out of office. Hopefully we'll see more in 2012. Dumbocrats and Repulsicans alike.

Carol Kilgore said...

Patricia - I TOTALLY agree!

Stephen - We need to work for the good of our country, not the good of the politicians.

Medeia Sharif said...

Happy New Year!

I know this all happened recently, but it seems like the distant past--I always get that way after New Year.

Ian said...

Happy Day's

Carol Kilgore said...

Medeia - I'm ready for the new year!

Ian - Same to you. Welcome to the Tiki Hut.
