What are your New Years Day culinary traditions?

I know that we have a wide variety of cultures and religions among News Talkers and I'm reasonably sure that we have many people who still observe culinary traditions on New Years Day.  Black-eyed peas are a common meal in the American south. I'm German and it's common to make roast pork and 'kraut on New Years....

Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid isn't holding back. Reid, who retired from the Senate in 2017 after three decades, told The New York Times in an interview published Wednesday that he thinks President Trump is "without question the worst president we've ever had," adding that while the U.S. has "had some bad ones," there is "not even a close second to him." Reid called...

Jan 02 12:18pm @4.1 Harry Reid tells one lie , Trump tells 5000. That is a conservative's concept of equivalency.

Many longtime liberals find themselves bewildered at the continued antics of the Democrats at a time when they have a real, albeit small, window of opportunity to demonstrate that they have some acquaintance with the art of responsible governance. Thoughtful people like law professors Jonathan Turley and Alan Dershowitz, who understand that the nation’s polity will be far healthier if both...

Jan 01 12:46pm @7.3.9 Opposing Donald Trump and saying so is not "extremism". I'm coming to the conclusion that there is something wrong with a lot of people on this forum.

Although he generally sang backup vocals with the group, his lead turn on that song, written by Shel Silverstein, gave the band one of its biggest hits. Sawyer died today (Dec. 31) in Daytona Beach,...
