Last year I resolved to never make resolutions again.

I'm going to do the same this year, even though it means breaking last year's.

I'm going to look at some small scale 'make the world a better place' activities. You know, save some water, save some power, reduce carbon emmissions, targetted donations and the like. ltimately I'd like to be (personally or as a family) carbon negative (ie net reduction in emissions) but in terms of a long term goal rather than just something to do. I hope, ask again next week

I have no idea why anybody would want to take a new years resolution. What about the rest of the year !? Most dont stick to their resolutions anyway. So its kind of a fashion statement or something - like valentines day

With 160 posts in more than a year you're not even close to being addicted. Why not resolve to make one quality post a day?

Ha Ha That is infact correct.

Good idea. I will try Sadly most of my posts are at MD.

But Ulf, have a look at Tontang Bei, he has only 46 posts and he's complaining. Comparatively I am somewhat addicted. Don't you think so?

Not to make any more resolution.


If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?
