Good evening, everyone, it's 6pm. As you all know, it's New Year's Eve, the last night of 2011. I'm sure a lot of you will be bringing in the new year with your friends and family, which is a good thing. As for my family and I, we'll be having yet another quiet New Year's Eve with no other family members or friends over. I must say, I like it when it's quiet. It gives me a chance to monitor the radio. Speaking of monitoring, I'm going to monitor 25 from now until 8pm, then I'm switching to some other Zones to monitor for my other blog. I'll be returning at 10:15 with 17, then at 10:30, I'll cover 14 until 11. At 11, I'm returning with 25 until 11:30. Finally, at 11:30, I'm going to take a break until 12:15. At 12:15, I'm returning with 17 until 12:30. Then at 12:30, I'm going to monitor my other blog until 1am, at which time I'll come back with 14 until 1:14, then I'll be monitoring until my other blog until 2am, at which time I'm returning with 25 until 2:15. After 2:15, I'll be gone for the night. Also, for you readers in 17 North of Belmont, ProdigalOne will be doing additional coverage after 8pm. There will probably be another post from her. So there are my plans for the evening. What are yours? I hope all of you will stay safe this evening into the new year. Here's crime for this last night of 2011.
