Sleigh Ride

1) Have you ever ridden in a sleigh? I think I have, but I was a kid

2) This recording is from Harry Connick Jr's best-selling CD, When My Heart Finds Christmas. This year, did you add any new holiday songs to your personal collection? I got a 3-disc compilation of crooners & swingers singing all my holiday favorites

3) Harry was born and raised in New Orleans, a city that seldom sees snow. Have you had enough snow to shovel so far this winter? yes, I have

4) Speaking of weather, Harry hosted a mini-series on The Weather Channel called 100 Biggest Weather Moments. Do you frequently check The Weather Channel? it's the app on my phone

5) Harry's mother was a very impressive woman -- a lawyer, judge and Louisiana Supreme Court justice. Tell us about someone in your family of whom you're very proud. my father is a beloved teacher and choral director, since retiring, he is a professional musician

6) Happy New Year! Now that Christmas is over, are you done with holiday music and decorations? Or are you sad to see the holidays end? I am sad to see the decorations go but I still listen to the music, I haven't listened to everything in my collection yet (I'm almost finished up)

7) The New Year's Eve fireworks celebration in Sydney, Australia is famous for coordinating pyrotechnics and music. Have you ever welcomed the New Year in another country? I have spent New Year's Eve in Canada--and it isn't different than here. Maybe it's because I've always lived along the border, I don't know, but there aren't many differences.

8) Do you have any New Year's Resolutions for 2016? I didn't make resolutions, per se, but I set some goals

9) Looking back on 2015, what surprised you? some family drama stuff, I'm not used to family drama stuff.

Family drama sucks, trust me I feel your pain. Happy New Year!

I never think of your family as having drama! You make it sound like such a happy clan.

I love hearing Sinatra croon carols. I hope you've got his "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

When my mother passed away I got her collection of Christmas CDs, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole and a number of other classic Christmas CDs.

I like the idea of making goals rather than resolutions.

Goals are good. I wish you much success. Happy New Year!

Family drama... tell me. Ugh!
Well, I hope 2016 will be with as little of it as possible.
happy new year!
