Among people I know, a traditional New Year's Day dinner is often a nice big roast beef. If, like a friend of mine, you decide that the roast you've bought needs to hang for a bit of extra aging, be careful where you hang it . . .
I'll put up more images later of Connor, the Malayan Tiger at the San Diego Zoo, from this morning, but for now I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year before the day was over.
