December 24, 2014 Traditional Early New Years Party at Wynola Pizza Eve New Years eve is all about tradition, and Wynola Pizza has established a long lasting early party with some of San Diego and Julian's outstanding musicians. Come down to the Red Barn for a three hour celebration of out with the old and in with the new. Starting at six The Jones Brother will tune up the music, the pizza oven will be fired up and the party begins. The Jones Brothers are Britt & Craig Jones. Born and raised in St. Louis, music was ever-present growing up. There was Buddy Holly, Elvis, Motown, Kingston Trio and the British Invasion. So, like many of the era, they got hooked. Brother Britt picked up Dad's '39 Gibson and taught himself Kingston Trio and Simon & Garfunkel songs. Brother Craig, upon hearing Britt play "For What It's Worth" by Buffalo Springfield asked his older brother, "Can you teach me that song?" They have been playing and singing ever since. One problem though .... Britt moved to San Diego in 1973 and Craig headed to Boulder, Colorado in 1978. So while they have been playing and singing "forever", it wasn't until this year when Craig moved to San Diego that they could perform together again. They PlaY some originals and cover favorite songs by Van Morrison, Everly Brothers, John Prine, Dave Alvin, Springsteen and others. Good songs, good arrangements and good harmony, played with enthusiasm and a love for music. At nine (it's midnight in New York) the first ringing in of the new year will be right here in Wynola. Many have taken advantage of the early start to get themselves geared up for the next party or private celebration. It's also a great way to just celebrate with friends and head back to the house for some private New Years revelry. What ever your preference, it's a fun way to say bye-bye to 2014 and hello 2015. Party hats, noise makers all the usual, and whether you call it a night or head to the next destination, Wynola Pizza )rovides a safe, family friendly way to get the New Year started off. In 1659, the Puritans of the Massachusetts Bay Colony banned the celebration of Christmas, because of what they saw as elements of heathenism in that celebration. The English Parliament had abolished the celebration of Christmas in 1647, but the ban was lifted when the Puritans lost power in 1660 Shouldn't It Be Called CATmess Christmas is for cats. Some think there are other reasons for the season, listen. There is real proof that Christmas was made just for us and for our catly pleasure. We'll start with Christmas trees. Here we are in the middle of winter, when it's often wet and usually too cold to go outside and climb up until we have to meow for help from some gullible human. So our humans bring a tree to us, set up inside and surrounded by the warmth and coziness of the family circle. A tree with nicely spaced branches to climb. And more! They dangle little balls and stars and various thingy' to amuse us whilst we are exploring the indoor tree. The most discerning humans make sure that some dangles are hard and round and will roll across the floor when we drop them (why else but to have cats take them off do they hang so temptingly?) while others are soft and chewable. We love Christmas trees but stockings are fun as well. They hang from some high perch and are, the humans think, out of reach. So we have a delightful challenge: Do we jump from the top of the bookcase? Do we climb up the back of a chair? Oh, delicious! And then there is food. Roasts and turkeys are put out on the The Julian News 7 kitchen counters (okay, our humans say they are off limits but backs can be turned and while the gaze is away the Kitty Cats will play) to warm to room temperature or to rest after cooking and we won't even talk of scraps. Humans can fill themselves with sugarplums and candy canes--we go straight for the meat! And when the Big Day comes.., beyond wonderful. Opening presents, that is. The humans strew the floor with paper and ribbon so we can wrap ourselves in it and pretend we are the presents, or we can skitter across the floor, festooned with ribbon and following one of those hard little colored balls that pop and crinkle when we manage to pounce directly on them. And there is still the Christmas tree! Up, up and away, trailing ribbon and bits of paper and if we all cluster at the very top... WHEEEE! Humpty Dumpty strikes again! Yes, Christmas is made for cats.
