I'll start - my new year's resolutions are to give back more through volunteerism, and to finish the landscaping in my yard. That will be enough to keep me busy until 2014! OK, who's next? What's your resolution?

OK I'll try my best to stop procrastinating!!! No more, 'oh well I can wait until tomorrow to do that'. My Daughter and I are really getting good at that - actually more me than her!!!

That's just a good motto for life, Becki! And good luck to you, Donna. If Facebook didn't exist, I might be better at that myself...
