Last day of the year

December 31, 2022
 by Paul McGowan

In one sense, the calendar is silly. Other than being valuable to people who make their living off the land, I don’t know how much value to place on one day versus the other.

Tuesday isn’t a whole lot different than Wednesday unless you make up some rules about it. (*Speaking of rules and dates that matter only to those looking at a calendar, I am reminded of German Philosopher Frederick Nietzche’s quote: “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”)

That said, we do look at calendars, and they do remind us of the passage of time.

I hope 2023 is another wonderful year to be alive.

Thank you for all you do and all you contribute.

From all of us to all of you, have a happy new year!

  1. I passionately concur paulsquirrel! 2023 will be a even more wonderful year to be alive if at least the warmongers desist from their activities.

    As I write, there’s just over 3 hours until 2023, at least on the Australian east coast. 😉

    Best wishes all for 2023!

  2. A calendar – a useful way to keep track of the amount of trips around the sun.
    Yesterday may not seem any different, but think back to this time a year ago, and compare what happened between then and now.

    Wishing you Paul and all others perusing these pages a Happy New Year. May the upcoming year be prosperous, May the challenges be overcome, May your health be good, may your tunes be great.

    Enjoy it and thanks for an interesting year.

    1. Not if you live by a lunar or lunisolar calendar, so for one of my kids tomorrow is the 8th day of the ninth month (Tevet) and he’ll be in the office at 7am.

      1. Ok, I generalized and assumed a reference to the Gregorian calendar.
        Use which ever one you want. Just don’t be surprised when you get blank stares. 😀
        Work at 7am on a Saturday. Building character? Catching up? Just a sense of dedication? Or going in early to get out early for a little revelry?

        Happy New Year Steven!

        1. Today is the sabbath, so no work. Tomorrow is a normal day, as it is for me. Same for Muslims, who use a pure lunar calendar. Also exclude the Chinese, it’s the 10 day of their 12th month. So it’s new year tomorrow for about a third of the world’s population. Have fun everybody.

  3. All the best to you and your family in 2023. Thanks for sharing your audio experiences with those of us that enjoy good music. It’s therapeutic for me.

  4. It has been a pleasure for me to participate in this forum. Thank you Paul and thank all of you for the insight and knowledge you have given me through your participation.

    Happy New Year! I hope we all have a safe and prosperous 2023.

  5. Paul, you very well could be retired, luckily for us you have created a great gig where I can (safely?) say being a workaholic is probably comes rewardingly easy. Your creation is our gain. So I’m thankful you started & host this thing. Without it we’d all be just a bunch of unknown common interest dudes spread across the globe. You keep the spark going.

    It’s been another year of wake up, belly rub (uh..no, it’s never MINE…), check mail, pull-start brain (daily Far Side, wordle & canuckle (Canadian wordle) and then see what my fellow audio nuts are on about.

    I wish you all a year of peace, good fortune, joy and happiness and no hearing degradation!

    So thanks to Paul, and to all I bid you a Hippy Gnu Ear!!

    1. That is such a nice post. I have to latch on to your nice sentiments and your kindness to Paul.

      Glad to be part of this community with nice people such as yourself.

      Happy new year, my friend.
