Happy Easter New year (as always, starts tomorrow) ...
Happy New Year my crusty friend.
May this year bring you all health, wealth and happiness. Cheers ?
Look at someone and say “whatever you’re going through, better days are coming“
Happy New Year everyone! Give a hug to the person standing next to you and pass the bubbly!
May the new year bring you progress in the dharma!
Happy New Year to everybody on NB. I am very grateful for my new sangha! Wishing you all happiness, health and peace of mind!
May the best of this Year be he worst of the next.... Is my annual wish to all.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year.
And remember that...
“Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
(like the past)...the future is just an illusion that could lead one astray”
Happy "Present Moment"
Happy New Year everybody!
2019 marks the year of the Police Pig according to the Chinese Horoscope ( if one believes in this kind of thing)....
This little piggy went to market,(to be sold)
This little piggy stayed at home,
This little piggy had roast beef, (fattening up)
This little piggy had none,
This little piggy cried,
"Wee-wee-wee!" All the way home.(to the slaughter house)
...which was no fairy tale ending for the poor pig....
We already have a @lobster, so are there any members who are pigs ?...
You will, like Bodhi Cinderella, 'go to the Ball' and marry Prince Charming Gautama ...
New Year Bodhi Resolves:
Actually, the Year of the Pig begins on February 4 or 5 next year.
My daughter was born in The Year of the Pig.... She's the most wonderful human being I know...
New Year - New Start - New Day
Reminds me of Nina Simone
Well 5 and a bit hours till the new year arrives in Aotearoa (NZ) ...At midnight I should be in the land of nod ....because I need my beauty sleep Hmm what a funny saying ... so does this mean if I stay in bed for a week will I look younger and even more beautiful ...
Happy New Year NBers
4hrs 15 mins till 2019 in Australia. May you all have a great NYE.
6 Hrs till New Year in the Netherlands. They’ve started the fireworks outside here...
Let’s make 2019 a great year!
Happy New year from Singapore.
We're about to go to sleep soon.
At midnight I was woken by the sound of fireworks going off ( thanks a lot Tang Destiny China-but there's no evil spirits to scare off here )
Well it's new years day and nothing's changed which means everything's changing...
1436 here, New Years Eve. I wish all of you the best and am looking forward to learning from all of you in the coming year.
@Buddhalotus are you from Singapore? or are you just visiting or living/working there?
I have fond memories of the old Singapore, the night food markets where some stall owners had pet rats on string leases, the exotic smells and sounds and at the time very cheap electrical equipment...The Singapore before Lee Yuan Yu came to power and cleaned up the place...It's nice clean and tidy now ...I guess this is just the swings and roundabouts of progress and change...
Singapore was in a sense the first exotic country I visited, this was back in early 1972 on my way back to the UK to visit family and travel over Europe...My big ( well one of many ) OE so to speak...
This was the days when cheap ship jet travel was around ...Cruise ship from Perth to Singapore ( 6 nights) then jet from Singapore to London...
Still 7 and a half hours left here until New Years! Happy New Year Everybody!
Oh you're so yesterday @LotusMind ...Get with the times
Happy New Year everyone. About 6 1/2 hours to go in Alaska. This year, no worries about the old dog going crazy on account of the fireworks - she's lost a lot of her hearing and is a happier dog because of it.
Just visiting, @Shoshin
I love Singapore too, though Lee Yuan Yu...
I was not even born, lol
Well not in your present form
Enjoy your time there
Stayed up to watch the London fireworks on tv at midnight. 10 minutes of continuous “spectacular” fireworks. Is it just me that finds it grossly excessive these days!?
We watched the Christmas episode of 'Gogglebox', (it's very funny, but a somewhat ironic thing to do - watch the reactions of others, who in turn, are watching tv themselves!) an hilarious hour of Frankie Boyle, and then hit the sack at about 01.15. Did nothing special, but did what we wanted to do, not what might have been expected of us to do....
(Participants of Gogglebox are expected to watch and critique programmes dictated to them by the Producers. It involves sitting in front of the TV for a long, long time, but they are handsomely paid for doing nothing!)
It's been a pleasure meeting everyone.
I wish all of you a Happy New Year.
Thank you for all the lovely Buddhist discussions but I may be following another path now.
Thank you, @federica and all of you for your kindness
Buddhadragon has yet again, left the building.
I suspected as much, but now have proof.
Sorry guys, Carry on.
Got there in the end lol
Joy and sadness, dark and light, same old world, always new.
Oh what a sweet little thing!
I think this must be our youngest member ever!
