11. Suffer fools gladly.

Live life in high-def

My resolution was to be less freaked out about the future but that was before I read about the Yellowstone Supervolcano.

To be less tolerant of those I dislike or disagree with.

Live life in high-def

Interlaced, or progressive?

2,000 sit ups per week
Is that total for all of us combined? Put me down for 7.

You nailed it on the high fructose corn syrup.

I am on zero corn syrup, which is hard because it's in everything.

1. I will slow down.

2. Listen.

3. Before offering advice to others ask myself " Did they ask?"

A good way to avoid corn syrup is to cook your own food so you can control the contents. Read Michael Pollan.

Quit smoking (again).
Drink less of better quality booze.
In the mornings, switch from Coca-Cola to coffee.
Bike more, drive less; swear more, honk less.
Be as good a person as my dog already thinks I am.

1. Listen first, then think, then respond.
2. Yoga
3. Less alcohol
4. Better alcohol
5. Plant veggie garden
6. Teach daughters to ski and fish
7. Hike more
8. Bring extended family closer
9. Work on poker face
10. Hit five new Oregon wineries

Haven't made any resolutions yet this year, so I guess the first one on my list would be:

1. Stop procrastinating

I plan to get around to it soon as I read this blog and several others.

The sunscreen item may deserve a little research to see if it is something you *really* want to do.

Long story short: 1) inhibits Vit D production and 2) lots of weird chemicals and 3) many aren't effective.


Like the T-Shirt says:

Eat Right.
Die Anyway.
