WOW! 2007 was quite a year here in the ole blogosphere. Between my two blogs, I posted 338 times, and judging by the overwhelmingly positive comments, I have made many friends in the past 365 days here.
Last night we stayed home and celebrated the new year's arrival very quietly. I had been awake since 2:30am, so I think I would be a hazard on the road anyhow. I watched New Years Rockin Eve. Dick Clark, still showing the effects of the stroke he suffered 3 years ago, looked good for someone who's almost 79 years old.
I should give awards more often. Yesterday this blog got 80 hits, which is 31 hits over the daily average. I had fun thinking up names for for all the awards and trying to remember all those who have been major contributors to the overall success of this blog. Once again, you are all winners.
What I want for 2008: Hopefully all those who see me this coming year will see less and less of me as the year progresses. Diamond contacted me, asking for a story about my weight loss struggles. Visit A Day in the Zone often because she will be posting stories hoping to motivate others. I also have financial goals to meet in the coming year.
A book I recommend folks to read is called The Fred Factor, by Mark Sanborn. I have this book in audio form, so I have listened several times. It can show you how you can be the best at what you do. I especially recommend this book to Michelle, as customer service is stressed.
All those who stop here are people who have shown me that they use the internet for good. Hopefully we can touch many people in a positive way in 2008.
And lastly: The photo currently on my profile is how I looked when I was 16. The green tie was the only one I owned. Not too many things have changed. I still don't own too many ties and the last time I wore one was June 23 for my daughter's wedding.
