Revelers began celebrating New Year’s Eve in Times Square as early as 1904, but it was in 1907 that the New Year’s Eve Ball made its
maiden descent from the flagpole atop One Times Square. Seven versions of the Ball have been designed to signal the New Year. The first New Year’s
Eve Ball, made of iron and wood and adorned with one hundred 25-watt light bulbs, was 5 feet in diameter and weighed 700 pounds. It was built by a
young immigrant metalworker named Jacob Starr, and for most of the twentieth century the company he founded, sign maker Artkraft Strauss, was
responsible for lowering the Ball.
Happy New Year!!! Don't forget to "LEAVE the KEYS!"
From Southwestern Ontario Canada, just across the lake from Sandusky Ohio. Going to a house party in the neighborhood, I am lucky enough to have my
own local community of friends. I hope 2014 bring each and everyone of you the best year so far and that we as a community continue to carry on and
grow. Love you all.
p.s. I have my new polka dot undies on for all of the riches to come in 2014 in every way, not just money...I hope you do too...
