Mrs. Hoge is organizing our family’s annual New Year’s Eve open house which doubles as my birthday party.
I’m taking the rest of the year off. I’ll be back around tomorrow.
Oh, one more thing … if it’s clear tonight, go outside and look toward the south. That very bright star you’ll see near Orion’s feet is Sirius. It will be due south at your local midnight on New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day.
