New Year's quandry 

Does anyone really know what on earth auld lang syne means? Our in-house expert tells us that auld is old -- but lang syne translates literally to long since, which makes no sense. Does anyone have a clue?

    What should President Bush's New Years resolution be?

    He should be more forthcoming about his foreign policies and try to build some bridges with some of the foreign countries that I think he has alienated.

    What's one thing you will absolutely, definitely do in 2005?

    I'll by flying a new bird -- I'm a falconer. So I'll be training a new falcon this summer.

    Remember the millennium? Were you a Y2K junkie?

    Well, I was working for Oracle, so I was sitting in the office waiting for something to go wrong, but nothing did. Got a call from one tech guy -- I think he was lonely.

    Have you ever had a New Years resolution thats stuck?

    I've tried to do that not get any older one, but the next year, Im always older. Tried not to get gray hair -- that's not going anywhere for me either.
