New Year’s Resolutions

Another new year and another chance to break promises to myself! I almost never bother with New Year’s Resolutions any more.  I mean, honestly, how many of us actually keep them?  Sure the gyms and churches are all full in January, but by Spring, we’re usually back to our old ways again.  Still it’s traditional, […]

Starting Your New Year

So, here we are, the first day of a brand, new year! Honestly, it’s a pretty arbitrary demarcation of time.  I mean, it doesn’t even really sync up with any significant natural phenomena, like a solstice or anything.  So, really, the whole idea of a “new year’s resolution” is pretty random.  What’s so special about the […]

To Tell The Truth

So, we’re a week into the New Year.  Have you done anything you want to keep secret? Hey, no judgement here!  Believe me, there are plenty of things that I would just as soon forget as ever talk about again!  Nothing, of course, illegal, or anything that would keep me from getting a security clearance, as […]

Hope for the New Year

As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t really make New Year’s Resolutions any more. In fact, I haven’t made them in quite a few years.  That’s not to say that I don’t make goals, but I don’t base them on the passing of the year.  Frankly, it’s a pretty arbitrary construct and I just don’t find […]

New Year’s Resolutions

So, here we are, the day after Christmas and just around the corner is New Year’s Eve. I don’t put much stock in New Year’s Resolutions any more, since 40+ years of experience tells me that they’re almost never kept.  But, that still doesn’t mean I won’t encourage you, gentle readers, to make some resolutions […]

Get Started!

So, we’re a month into the New Year.  What have you done so far? Last month, I posted my fun, hopefully funny, Random Resolution Generator, because, well, everyone seems to make those annual New Year’s Resolutions, but who ever follows through?  As it turns out, almost no one does.  In fact, most people don’t even […]

Creative Resolutions

No, I don’t mean New Year’s Resolutions that are “creative”. Rather, I’m talking about making some New Year’s Resolutions regarding creative output. I’ll be honest, this year hasn’t been my most productive, creatively.  But, to be fair, I did get married and merge my life with another person’s and that did take a lot of […]

Resolution Generator

Christmas is over and the New Year looms near! Traditionally, this time of year is when we review our lives and find fault with everything we didn’t accomplish in the preceding year, then make ridiculous promises to ourselves about how we’re going to do better in the coming year.  We call them “New Year’s Resolutions”, […]

Ramen Info

Readers from my other blog will know that I love both ramen noodles and infographics. It’s almost a kind of sickness, I’ll admit, but I really love ramen.  I don’t care that they aren’t necessarily the healthiest thing for me to eat, because I know there are worse things, and I love them.  The past […]

Put Your Diet on Autopilot

So, we’re eleven days into the New Year.  How are  your resolutions holding up? If you’re like most people, you’ve made a personal commitment to eat better and lose weight in the coming year.  But, like most people, that little resolution won’t last through the end of the first quarter.  Well, the good news is […]
