Rome: How to Ring in the New Year Properly

Happy New Year! As I wrote last year, each year a group of our friends gather to celebrate the New Year. We all live in different states, so we rotate hosting duties. This year everyone is cozied up in our house. Last night we celebrated the end of 2009 with Prosecco and lasagne. Today we are watching HBO's "Rome" -- a fabulous TV drama about the days of Julius Caesar in Rome. "Rome" is fabulous TV!

The cast is incredible -- filled with BBC all-stars including Polly Walker as Atia, Kevin McKidd as Lucius, and Ciaran Hinds as Caesar. And the costumes and sets bring ancient Rome alive in all its golden glory.

So, we are cozied up in our jammies, with a pot of coffee on, and we're starting the year off right -- in "Rome!"

Happy New Year to you all!
