Mine would be exercising more and eating healthy.  Plus I would like to paint the inside of my house.

At my age my New Year resolution is never to make another New Year resolution. jrSmiley_2_smiley_image.png

I do shake change in my hand every new years though. It FINALLY worked, July of  2017. jrSmiley_68_smiley_image.png

I'm with Kavika on that.  I can't remember what the last New Year's resolution I ever made was, it was so long ago.

I did that years ago - and it's probably the only New Year's resolution I ever kept!

Yeah, I would like to add at least one more AR to the collection before summer and maybe move even further out in the boonies.

In 2020 I will continue to help others through Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care.

I would like to spend more time training people to succeed me.

Also to write more.

Add to the body of literature in my fields.

My focus is shifting from doing to making sure past my time things still get done.

This afternoon a very good and close friend and colleague, Bernie T. and I sipped coffee and mused over this.

While Bernie has more decades left than me, we are both fighting the clock.

We want for generations to come to have people to whom they can go as they need and want. 

People with souls.

Pastors who will respect them and their ways.

Comfort and be there for them.

No judgement.

No manipulation.

Just help when they want, as they wish.

Tomorrow Bernie T., Jeanette Y. and Alan B. will share lunch Mrs. E. will make for us at our home. 

We seek to plan out how to use 2020 to set up for time well past next year.

P&AB.

Enoch.

I would have to do 3 resolutions annually since I can celebrate 3 different New Years.

Dear Brother Buzz: Five Here.

Gregorian calander New Year (January 1st).

Rosh Ha Shanah, and the other Jewish New Years (I.E New Year for Trees etc.).

Other than T'shuvah during Yomim Ha Noraheem not much in the way of resolutions.

What is the custom in China for their New Year on this topic?

P&AB.

Enoch.

I don't think the Chinese practice the custom of making New Year resolutions. But there are a huge number of customs that are relevant to Chinese New Year.

Add to these that New Year's Eve, after dinner, is usually spent by the whole family watching the huge show from Beijing on TV.

I resolve, on a weekly basis to do better. My New Years resolution is to keep my weekly resolutions.

In 2014 I went to the gym everyday - the whole year. I'm thinking of giving it a go again. I have more time for it this time around.

HO scale, along basement wall for about 30 feet long by 3 feet wide with 4 foot turning loops at ends

Nice!

My dad had an HO set when I was a kid. I remember him yelling at me when I'd "borrow" a tree or two from his stash for my army men!

He had to get rid of it (it was pretty big) when we moved to Texas because the houses here don't have basements.

I remember he even had this little deal that would lower coal into the car on the train. He had a big tunnel, train station roundhouse, the works!

I was a member of a club for over 30 years and then the building was sold, we have not found a new place so I will build my own.  Won't be as good as club but I'll get something to play with.

Biggest problem is all the stuff in the basement

My dad always put tracks around the Christmas tree and the train would run when the Christmas tree lights were on.

 When I used to put up a Christmas tree, I put a train and Christmas scene under it

I bet that looked so good. My Grandmother would make a Christmas garden under her tree.
