    Ring Out the Olde Year, Ring in the New !

    "Ring Out, Wild Bells" is a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Published in 1850, the year he was appointed Poet Laureate, it forms part of In Memoriam, Tennyson's elegy to Arthur Henry Hallam, his sister's fiancé who died at the age of twenty-two.

    According to a story widely held in Waltham Abbey, and repeated on many websites (see two examples below), the 'wild bells' in question were the bells of the Abbey Church. According to the local story, Tennyson was staying at High Beach in the vicinity and heard the bells being rung. In some versions of the story it was a particularly stormy night and the bells were being swung by the wind rather than deliberately.



    Ring out the false, ring in the true.

    [Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
    For those that here we see no more,
    Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
    Ring in redress to all mankind.

    Ring out a slowly dying cause,
    And ancient forms of party strife;
    Ring in the nobler modes of life,
    With sweeter manners, purer laws.

    Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
    The faithless coldness of the times;
    Ring out, ring out thy mournful rhymes,
    But ring the fuller minstrel in.

    da DOOG will try his best this New Year for sweeter, less rancorous, words for all !

    In any day of any year one should always keep in mind,

    Thou knowest the man's fall but thou knowest not his 'wrasslin' [struggle].

    New Year's resolution

    If I went back in time I wouldn't kill Hitler, I would save Rosa Luxembourg.

    Quick, how many moons are there in Bakersfield, CA ?

    Hint: The correct number is three. I know, I looked outside.

    Wait for my science fiction story about Antarctica changing position. It's done it before about 100,000 million years ago so I only have to interview some old-timers.
