Another one bites the dust, and a new year upon us here in Asia 😀
UK, Europe, USA, Canadia and others still have fireworks to go.
Thank you to all the loyal readers of my little blog over the past year. We’ve had some real fun on this blog in 2014, and “inshalah” ( “if god wills it” – in Arabic) long may the party continue. OR … let’s bake up something really nice in the ideas kitchen this year ahead !
I haven’t been able to get out this year for the festivities, a bit under the weather with antibiotics etc – So a little video I cobbled together quickly with footage from our balcony, a few fireworks – taken an hour or so ago :
Bonus points for naming the tune and the artist 😀

Reblogged this on S.O.U.L. S-P-A-C-E and commented:
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to you, too. I look forward to your posts. And the song – isn’t that a Jimmy Durante song? The name is ‘Jada Jing Jing,’ or something. It’s a song from early TV; my parents made us watch!
THanks … and very very close, it’s called “Ja-da” by Alma Cogan … was brought to my attention in a TV ad for chocolate bars in the UK … something very pretty and uplifting about it …
Happy New Year.
Happy New Year and many blessings Don 🙂
Thanks Ann, hope you’re well dear 😀
Hi Don, yes, I am 🙂 thank you for asking! We’re going to have a blessed year. (smile)
I’m hoping so, for you and I 😀
Faith, my friend, it will happen by faith. (smile) enjoy your day Don!!
I am one of those poor suckers who will bring in the new year at work. That is what I get for picking to work in Operations at a resort I guess!
Anyway, best wishes for the New Year and to more progress!
Onwards my friend, and upwards 😀
Happy new year, albeit a working one !
Happy New Year Don and hope you get well and off those antibiotics quickly. My husband suffered in the tropics and was on treatment for ulcers and dengue, coral cuts, malaria and you name it. I sailed through without incident. Hope 2015 sees you well, happy and whatever else you wish for yourself.
It’s pretty minor, just need to take a little extra care of myself when I’m under the weather … And Irene I think you have enough Charisma for at least two people, so you’re husband’s lucky to have you 😀
I have a few wishes for 2015 … and likewise hope yours is well and happy too 😀
That is one of the nicest compliments I’ve had all year – especially coming from the Don.
Yes 2015 I hope will be good for all. 🙂
😀 … calling like it is Irene … just thinking back on an incident last year, couldn’t believe how cool you handled it … ’nuff said though …
See you soon 😀
’nuff said but thanks. 🙂
LOL … true 😀
Happy New Years to you too Don!
Thanks my friend 😀
I’m sorry that you are sick. Get well soon.
I like your video. How cheerful!
Thanks, and yes it’s a minor issue, tropics are notorious for infections !
I like the song and it’s about the shortest one in my “faves” … so why not 😀
Don, the first song I heard sounded to me like Doris day . Now that being said let me take this time to wish you a happy New year, may all your wishes hopes and dreams come your way. Many blessings and peace
She’s an English equivalent of Doris Day I think, probably similar era, but I’d need to check … I won’t reveal her just yet, someone’ll get it I’m sure 😀
Blessings, happy new year
Joining Team Charisma made my year climax. I’m only started, enrolling for Kindergarten next year. This is the best class I ever joined and I’m determined to learn and learn more. Thanks Don, for making a warm home for us in here, you are so welcoming. May 2015 bring with it tones of humour and blessings to multiply the charisma you got. 1hr 7 minutes to go, here in Kenya.
I’m pleased to see you around dude, you’re very charismatic and happy to welcome a bright wordsmith 😀
Happy new year in however many minutes in Kenya
Happy New Year! С Новым Годом!
Happy New Year Don! Hope you feel better soon!
Thanks dearest … I’m on the mend I think !
Happy new year, and my new years resolution is to post my backlog of photos just for you 😀
Good to hear you’re on the mend! Please don’t crash my computer, k?? 😉
LOL, I’m ok babe, it’s minor … and I think you’re mistaking me for the Wizard of OZ, I can’t break computers simply with the power of my mind !
Happy New Year, Don! Thanks for an entertaining blog and, along with meaningful and wondrous pictures and sayings. Slainte!
Thanks … and it’s my pleasure … hope we’ll see more in 2015 😀
Joyeuse année 2015 !
Thanks, merci … and to you 😀
