Aside from the big one--a Diet. Get a bay window thats sitting in my garage finally put in this year, finish painting the 2nd story of my house, and get rid of junk.

Also been thinking for a long time about writing a book about welding. Just not sure if it should be geared to a textbook type of theme, or something like an acutal hands on guide to welding. Maybe both combined. I was really very lucky in my welding Job, to have done things in welding, not done by anyone else ever. Rocketdyne invented the processes to do things never done before. The solar one program involved MIG welding processes that had never been done before. I was on the ground floor of the Robotic TIG welding program never done before, and preformed the first production robotic TIG, weld done on the Space Shuttle. I was able to do a training flim where I narrated as I welded the powerhead assy to the main injector, which joins a $15M part to a $10M part. The set up and programing alone would take me over a day, and ususally about a week of welding. It was a pretty involved proceedure, parts of it done using mirrors due to no vision. I had the Cadillac of welding jobs.

Plus another writing project I;ve been thinking about concerning family history. Yes, I intend to do it all with a spelling/grammer program. Laugh

I have really thought about this a long long time, and was inspired by John writing his first book when he was 21. Something I think he should write about, is the John Greenewald Jr. complete guide to the FOIA.

I resolved years ago to never have another "new years resolution". So far, so good. That one I've been able to keep. 😀

same here..though I did just started lowcarbing again. (I have too..really let things go during my big move across country stress eating..to busy packign and unpacking to get around to working out)
Thank God for muscle memory.
I was just using new years as a definative start date..not so much as a resolution thing, though.

What happened to New Years Resolutions? :mrgreen:

Mine is to take down my Christmas tree before next year. Laugh

Being perfect I need not make any New Year's resolutions, my only thought is to stay perfect.
