FANTASY BOB'S CASUAL OBSERVATIONS ON CARLTON, CRICKET, LIFE AND ALL THAT OTHER STUFF
Saturday, 1 January 2011
Fantasy Bob wishes all his 3 readers a very Happy New Year.
He is at present in Austria, home to the wonderful New Year's Day concert by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Going to this concert is one of the many things on FB's list of things to do when he's too geriatric to get his legendary inswinger working from the bottom end.
Each year the Concert brings a sense of freshness, hope and optimism to the first day of the year and lights up the winter darkness. FB wishes everyone a very Happy New Year - may it be filled with light, hope and optimism. Prosit NeuJahr.
Here is the traditional closing number, the Radetsky March - taken from the 2010 concert conducted by Georges Pretres. Let it lift your heart. Enjoy.
