Should auld acquaintance be forgot, Happy New Year!

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot And auld lang syne?

The past decade started with a president in the United States of America many believed he did not win, followed by the first black American president. Terror attack became common on the news, and security gets tighter and tighter, particularly if you are not of white Cauasian race. A few transitions in the computering industry: Apple moved from System 9 to Mac OS X, and switched from PowerPC to Intel with a huge success. iPod also became a common term for portable music player.
On the entertainment side, we said ciao to Luciano Pavarotti in 2007, then the shocking death of Michael Jackson. Some TV series called the end, some new ones were born.
On the science part, for decades people were taught that there were 9 planets in our solar system. Then, there was the discovery of a possible 10th planet, and Xena The Warrior Princess made her name into our solar system. Then they decided to downgrade Pluto to a dwarf. In short, instead of adding 1 more, they decided to remove 1.
Blogs started up, then the social networking and the Web 2.0 dominated the web. ...

Well, I was 10 years younger in 2000.

Don't know the meaning (or can't remember the meaning) of Auld Lang Syne? You might want to take a look at this page New Year's Eve Song - Auld Lang Syne.

Looking for the song Auld Lang Syne? Only 99 cents.
