If they insist on having their very own time zone (what a bunch of narcissists!), I really think the West Coast needs to at least sync their activities to mine. They can work 6a to 3p, and then play football from 6p to 10p. Seems fair, right?
And about those New Year's resolutions....get real, people! "I'm gonna lose 30 pounds, get me some 6-pack abs, write a novel, do an archaeological dig in the Holy Land, and make the US Olympic ski team....right after I buy a pair of skis."
My NY res sounds a bit more reasonable, yet is probably equally out of reach:
My 2014 looks like it might be a very busy one. While I'm supposed to be retired, it's hard to walk away from work when there are serious $$$$ involved. That train doesn't come my way too often, so I'm gonna get on board while I can. One last good (?) year and then I can coast much more comfortably. *Please God* :)
I sincerely wish for each of you good health in this new year, the good fortune to be able to live peacefully with your neighbors (we're ALL neighbors), and the good sense to be grateful for all you do have instead of dwelling on those things you don't.
Or as some wise guy once said, "Live well, Laugh often, Love much".
