|WALLPAPER: MORNING BLAZE|
.. The rumors were true and we've been given permission to let you in on the coming orgy.
.. There are a couple of large pods of submarines cruising the estuary where the Madison River debauches into Quake Lake. They seem to be waiting for some primal signal to enter the river to spawn.

.. There's fireworks in town and on the lake this evening at midnight. We are going to pass this year and enjoy a traditional Italian celebration to ring in the new year.
.. Lenticchie e salsiccia dolce is the main bit of food. It's just lentils and sweet Italian sausage but the combination is a surprise on the palate.
.. Eat it hot or warm or cold. Follow it with some Chianti, some anise cookies, some chips and shrimp dip, and of course smoked salmon with cream cheese on focaccia bread.
-- Then start all over again with different cookies and some real hot chocolate.
.. It will prepare your constitution for some black eyed peas on New Year's Day.
