    2015: Resolution, Aspirations, Plans, and/or Determinations?

    What have you got?

    Me? I'd just like to go to bed earlier. Been a night owl all my life, but it's rather inconvenient and disruptive at times when other people are involved during my day activities.

    And go back to working out - had to put it off since my last bout with a pinched nerve last year.
    I'll go easy. "Piano, piano" as we say in my hometown.

    And finish writing the drivel I started some years back, and complete a few other projects.

    And make some serious money... and go see old friends in Europe.

    Me?
    Get back to walking and biking out and about (miss doing towards the end of each year) , with new camera and tri-monopod under arms.
    De-clutter the clutter - there's a large refuse bin going spare at work every week, so I'm gonna fill it.

    By all means, make "making serious money" your job, and when it's done, send it to me.
    You may keep 20%.

    I usually don't subscribe to such meager whims, they tend to be made while extremely intoxicated But since I'm sober at the moment, I'll give it an earnest effort.

    1) I'd like to quit smoking, but I haven't fully committed to the decision....thinking about the dedication needed to be successful, makes me want a smoke.
    2) I want to start using the word "neato", it's far better than cursing or vulgarity. Some highly regarded scholars are said to be impressed, by those that use the word "neato" fluently in conversation. If It doesn't work out, I'm heading for "cool beans" as my back up phrase.
    3) I want to spend more time with my Mother, she's a fabulous gal...and highly entertaining to hang out with. She's 80 years old now, sharp as a tack, love her. We've had a very tough year here, with family tragedies and health issues, unfortunately Mom was moved to the back burner.

    Me, hoping to be no longer smoking in 2015.
    Gave up on Monday, been on e-cigs since. So far it's working.
