    Make a decision on where to live. In other words, move to Minneapolis where my heart lies or move to one of our domiciles, which is what my head tells me to do. Or both..... But something's got to change.

    I don't want to do the usual things about quitting drinking or losing weight or riding more. They inevitably end up as failures. But I did just join the YMCA, so maybe there's hope of one of these things happening, preferably the weight thing. That's a good environment for that to happen.

    Predict: the chaos of the world will slowly be replaced by a status quo no one can imagine currently.
    Predict: the Toronto Blue Jays will win the world series over the Washington Nationals.

    Spend more time with my wife.
    Go to Italy.

    We won't make it to 2013 because the 21st is just 14 days away.

    Predict: A project I am involved in with blow up (in a majorly good way)
    Resolve: Spend more quality time with family, listening and enjoying their company rather than just being a body with a head full of distractions.
    Auk's words to live by:
    Blow up and pin a picture of M. Bartoli on your wall. When you achieve that position, stop. Until then, stretch, ride, stretch, ride, eat less, and ride more.

    Predict - Stock Market goes nuts, in a good way. Then in a bad way. Then good. Good again. Bad. Badder. A little gooder... ending the year slightly higher.
    Predict - I will keep taking on projects despite my ADD and inability to focus on finishing them.

    Resolve - To not take on extra projects despite the extra income.
    Resolve - Buy and learn the banjo. Should be 17% easier than the guitar.
    Resolve - Draw more. Paint more. Write more. For me.

    Bike resolve - Finish building up my cx, full-susp SS, and dumpster SS road bikes.

    Predict – The rampant stupidity displayed by Democrats and the GOP will continue to amaze those who are easily amazed.
    Predict – Simon Cowell will introduce another “talent” show for network TV.
    Predict – Gangnam style dancing will invade wedding receptions and football tailgates akin to the spread of the Electric Slide and the Macarena.
    Predict – Alberto Contador’s team won’t be invited to the TdF, and for the first time since the mid-nineties I’ll fail to watch two years in a row.

    Resolve – Ride, rain or shine, every single weekend of 2013.
    Resolve – Be a better husband.
    Resolve – Be more efficient at work, so I take work home less often.

    Predictions:

    - 2013 marks the first year during which the Republican party is forced to either change or die. They have become an opposition party with nothing but obstruction to bring to the table and everyone knows it.
    - Federal regulation of marijuana is discussed seriously and it is legalized elsewhere around the world.
    - Spain and possibly other eurozone countries will experience Greece like financial woes but hopefully with less reactionary fascism as a result of austerity measures forced upon them by Germany and other financiers.
    - Anthropogenic global warming will no longer be disputed by skeptics and undermining, polluting corporations. The white house will start to throw weight behind renewable energy and other efficiency measures.
    - The cost of space flight will be reduced to previously unheard of levels and it will spur further innovation and investment (OK this might still be a few years out)
    - Cycling: The doping bell cannot be un-rung and sweeping changes will be demanded and hopefully seen through before the 2014 season. 2013 could be a huge mess IMO...

    Resolution:

    - Try to control my substance abuse and self control problems :(

    The European Central Bank will implode with news of corruption
    World food prices will skyrocket to record levels
    Democratic Party will become increasingly divided over debt, energy and guns
    2 Supreme Court justices will announce retirement
    Tea Party will strengthen and consolidate power at state and local levels, red state/ blue state poverty divide will increase

    Resolved: reconnect job to heart, finish the damn home improvements (at least the big ones), put a solid personal finance plan in place

    Well, shit. I'm off to a bad start. But at least I get to watch the Tour...FWIW.

    Predict--nothing, I am never correct.
    Resolve--I will not buy a new bike in 2013 & I will spend less money on myself (if I honor resolution number 1, then the second resolution is automatic).
    Happy holidays and happy new year.

    Resolve - to not think about work when I'm not at work.
    Resolve - to figure out how to make two "training camps" (spring and summer) in the mountains happen.

    Predict - I will watch less sports on tv while cussing more. (I'm an NC State fan)
    Predict - my son and my wife will continue to humble me daily. I will have a blast watching the boy learn his balance bike this summer.
    Predict - I'll still be a shitty mechanic at the end of the year, but not quite as shitty as right now.
