2014: Happy New Year

How long before I remember to write 2014 instead of 2013? Ha, ha. I see that last year, I wrote "New Year's Resolutions: 2013". Hmmm, how did I do?

I donated to charity.

I continued to support Obamacare and gay rights.

I talked about my 2012 sports injury with the promise to do more to ensure this would never happen again. In March 2013, I got myself a gym membership and have been going regularly every two days to stretch, do the elliptical (elliptical trainer: stationary exercise machine), and lift weights. I have followed all sorts of dietary recommendations and managed to gain back 12 pounds.

I talked about making a trip to Las Vegas. I didn't do that. I remember adding up everything I wanted to do and a five day trip was going to cost me nearly two thousand dollars so I balked. I did go to Florida and did this: Jet Pack: Move Over James Bond (Jul 12/2013). I drove out of town and did this: My bungee jump in two words: Oh... my... God... (Oct 12/2013). I guess that's a start. I'll put Las Vegas back on the table again for this year. I am mulling over going to China. That has been an outstanding plan for a number of years. And, I mustn't forget the Caribbean. I have some relatives who told me about last minute deals which are just about a steal. If I can rush out with only a couple of days notice, I could get something really cheap.

The sky is the limit, no? Whatever the case, I'm stuck with 2014 now. I going to try to make the most of it!

Okay, this doesn't have anything to do with the new year, but I ran across it during my search for the above funnies. Look at it carefully. If you concentrate, you can perceive the train going in either direction. And no, I am not on drugs. When you finally manage to do this, I think you'll be a little startled.

And a very happy new year to you, Mr Belle.

The train thing is wild. Took a bit, but c-r-a-z-y.
