BUT HERE WE are now, some 18 years after the arrival of the year 2000 was supposed to cause every device that relies on a computer to go goofy. We're still here. We're still alive. We're still thriving.
Regardless, it's a brand new year and we're getting close to being one-fifth of the way through the 21st Century. So here's a Happy New Year, and hoping that 2018 to bring a little more joy to your life than did '17.
And to ring in the New Year, enjoy the "Auld Lang Syne Boogie" along with this dance number from Hellzapoppin. Or if that's a bit too freaky for you, how about this mid-1970s New Year bash from Chicago?
