New Years Resolutions Anyone??

Our Forums Have Closed

Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The good news: Now you have the ability to comment on the www.Almanac.com Web site pages!

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Sincerely,
The Old Farmer's Almanac

Happy New Year Everyone.

Has anyone made any New Year's Resolution's??

Do you stick to them and for how long??

Mine this years seems to be the same as every year, to resolve to stay on top of everything.
Work, house, animals and garden and relationships and car maintenance.

Oh never mind, just makes me tired just thinking about it.. ha ha ha

Have a great one.

Thanks,
Elsie ./.

You've Summed It Up Pretty Well

Elsie, I try to keep up too. My latest inspirations are these:

“One ought, each day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture and, if possible, speak a few reasonable words.” ~~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1700's)

And I add: BECAUSE

"If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail." ~~Abraham Maslow

If I get all grumbly, well what's the point.

So I load up my start page of my computer's web browser (google .com) with Pictures of the Day and Quotes, especially for cats, Nat'l Geographic, Flowers & Trees ...

You get the idea. And it hopefully lasts me thru the day!

But.....these are on my list..and have been long before the New Year started...
1. Stay in the Good Book daily
2. Be a blessing to someone every day
3. Make someone smile every day
4. Continue to lose the extra lard!!!!! :)

Very Worthy Resolutions!

Mine is to try to be more frugal. Things are getting so tight , we need to really pinch pennies... (this could actually be another thread..)
Oh and also to preview and save everything that I write on here....none of my posts are here from the last time visiting :p

I really have made one and...

Intend to try to keep to it.
I am really going to try to answer questions on this forum in the spirit they are asked and not give some hairbrained idiotic answer. Which is why I had to really stop myself from answering the one on potty training with the almanac.Are you going to join me YB. Let's see how long we last.
