Ready, steady ......not quite go

No doubt we are all keen (as always) to get into 2009, but we are reminded that a "Leap second" will be added at midnight it could indeed be a case of going "10, 9, 8,7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1,...1 again, Happy New Year!"
This of course is a tiny correction to allow for the fact that the earth is slowing down ever so slightly.
Of course it won't really bother us since it will happen at Midnight GMT which means it will actually occur at about 10.30 a.m. in Adelaide!

When I looked at the three blokes, I could not decide whether you had been celebrating too much or I had.
