Happy New Year!

Still in the country where the Internet satellite connection is far from reliable. I think I have an idea of what conditions are like in Iraq, with only a few hours of electricity a day. We have electricity and running water 24 hours a day, but the intermittent Internet access is as frustrating as no best I can tell.

Dinner this evening: Roast of lamb, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, baked onions with cheddar cheese sauce and double layer chocolate cake with homemade icing. To drink: Pisco sours, cabernet sauvignon, fresh coffee and Drambuie. Oh yeah, and water.

New Year's Resolution: (so boring it shouldn't even qualify as a resolution) Work out more. Regular blog posts? Is that important? We'll see...

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year. If next year is horrific, then let's experience the horrific-ness TOGETHER.

My resolutions, just two, lose some weight and save some money. I think I tied you in the boring department. :)

Happy New Year Swish and to all who follow your wonderful Blogs!

Happy New Year Laura! Happy New Year to everyone here!

“Work out more” That’s a good New Years resolution Laura. It’s also mine. I’ve been hitting the weights for about 3 weeks now and it feels good. I used to throw on a pack and hike every weekend. Have to call my old walking buddy.

Today I have to start my final backup of all data accumulated in the past year and commit it all to good quality media and move at least one set to the home of a family member for safekeeping. This would be a good resolution. I hear too many horror stories from people when they don’t backup regularly and they experience a disk (hdd/odd) failure and loose documents, images, etc. forever.

Happy New Year all.

My resolutions are to lose weight and also to buy my first house. I've been saving my pennies for years and waiting for the prices to drop. All the real estate people I know say now is the time to buy, of course they always say that.

A wise man once said, "You can judge the quality of a nation by the stability of their Internet connection." ... or plumbing, or something.

Let's make 2009 the Swishiest year ever!
