I've made New Year's resolutions, discarded some, while other goals will forever be part of my life. One of them was to donate blood platelets every two weeks @ the Blood Bank of Hawaii. I resolved to continue doing this for the rest of my life, or as long as the bank will have me. Another was to quit smoking, which I was able to do since January 1970. This year, I vowed to commute to work with my motorized bicycle every day, rain or shine. The "rain or shine" commitment was mentally challenging, even tho the weather is great 97% of the time. Making the bike dependable and maintaining it well was not easy. 2012 New Year's resolutions: I will not allow my wife and son to smoke in our home anymore. Presently, they're banned from doing so in my presence, so they smoke elsewhere in the house. I resolve to earn my motorcycle license in 2012, after acquiring my permit in 2011. I WILL fix and insure my 1985 Honda 150 scooter and get it on the road. It just needs to fix the flat tire(new), fix the speedo and secure loose body panels. I WILL get my 2006 Whizzer roadworthy. I WILL get Project 29er up and running in 2012. I will try to use less sick leave at work next year. I will try to be more productive @ work. I will try to be a better husband, a better father and the very best brand new grandfather. They will call me "Pops". I will try to understand and share the road with "cagers". I will try to be a better human being. How about you guys?
