Old Year and New Year by Christina Rossetti

New Year met me somewhat sad:
Old Year left me tired,
Stripped of favourite things I had
Baulked of much desired:
Yet further on my road to-day
God willing, further on my way.
Happy New Year

Neknominate / Neknomination

@April - Neknominate / Neknomination a combination of neck and nomination, started out as an online drinking game.

The original parameters of the game required the participant, or neknominee, to film themselves drinking a pint of an alcoholic beverage, usually beer, in one gulp and upload the footage to the web.

It has hit the news because, as the game spread it escalated, which was inevitable really, with nominees performing the challenge in more extreme circumstances by drinking more potent beverages or engaging in dangerous activities.

In some countries it has been changed from a drinking game into a challenge to perform acts of random kindness for others. Much more my cup of tea.
