Hi,

2013 is now a rumor, let 2014 be the year you make the biggest changes in your life at all levels.


So how did you spend your New Years Eve?

Did you make some New Years Resolutions like every other year?

What is the biggest obstacle other then yourself, that is holding you back from success?

If there was one are you could improve on, what would that area be?

What would be the biggest accomplishment you could make in 2014?

How do you think the economy will play out in 2014?

What do you think will be the best investment, one can make in 2014?

Just some areas, that l have an interest in...

All the Best

Joseph

    So how did you spend your New Years Eve?

    Outside, in the dark trying to stop a psychotic dog from chewing down my Mothers fence to get into ours, as well as being attacked by mozzies, (mosquitoes).

    But l later learned that terrier crosses, are prone to going off the deep end, when illegal fireworks are going off!


    Did you make some New Years Resolutions like every other year?

    No, mine are always the same, make a S***load, and make a beeline for the nearest tropical beach!


    What is the biggest obstacle other then yourself, that is holding you back from success?


    Well, barring psychotic, fence eating dogs, nothing much! :rolleyes:


    If there was one area you could improve on, what would that area be?


    Improving my graphic skill set!


    What would be the biggest accomplishment you could make in 2014?


    Actually making some decent money online, (on a regular bases). And knowing that l can compound or leverage that income stream.


    How do you think the economy will play out in 2014?



    More or less the same as last year, except Europe will improve slightly!


    What do you think will be the best investment, one can make in 2014?



    I don't invest in the stockmarket, so myself! :rolleyes:


    Did l get the job, (felt like l just handed my resume in)????

    Thanks for all the replies so far, but going to leave you with a special article l wrote... NO,,, this is not about advertising what l do, not at all....it is about someone l loved, no not a woman, and definitely not being gay or anything like that... just a man who knew what life meant, when you use some special words, to make a difference....

    The words may have an effect on who or what you want...

      Yep, he would think up his next evil scheme, to munch his way through some more of my Mothers tasty fence wood, and spend all night with his paws on the back screen door shaking it, (he actually did the paws on the screen door, shaking it, last time)! :rolleyes:

      For all we know he might say, "here's Johnny"? :p

            See, that's the thing. As time passes, those experiences that were less than desirable fade into almost non-existence while the good times tend to grow in intensity, especially when relived with loved ones - with family and friends.

    If there was one are you could improve on, what would that area be? goal kicking, then i could play number 10 instead of hooker

    What would be the biggest accomplishment you could make in 2014? grow to six feet tall

    How do you think the economy will play out in 2014? play is right, only fools take it seriously

    What do you think will be the best investment, one can make in 2014? bitcoin

        White hood?! Absolutely not. You don't want the hobos to see you coming. If they see you, they'll use their mystical powers on you. I thought everyone knew this.

        Thanks Terra,

        Not really sure why anyone would get pleasure out of hunting some poor, down on his luck guy, who really is not harming anyone....

        Strange way to enjoy New Years Eve, Dan, not sure why you would state that as an enjoyment, thrill or whatever you want to call it...

        I think, some medical attention might be needed, not for the Hobo either....

            Sorry for the threadjack, Joseph. For the most part, we 'Muricans don't hunt hobos for sport. I was just being silly.

            I actually spent my New Years serving poutine to the less fortunate.

              Well, if you need the reasoning behind my post, I knew what hookers and blow were, but I hadn't heard of hobo hunting before, so I had to look it up.

    Well, sometimes you do meet the wrong Hobo, he is actually waiting for you for many reasons... tired of Life to mention one, or perhaps tired of people jumping them, beating them etc...

    So be careful with who you hunt or you might be the hunted...

    Hobo with a Shotgun was that terrible I stopped watching it after about ten minutes. I'm so glad I downloaded it. I would have resented paying to watch it.

    So how did I spend New Year's Eve?

    Alone and writing.

    If anybody out there has a spare life they can lend me, I'd be grateful.

    I did laundry on New Years Eve. It was quite exciting. You can't win them all I guess? Lololol.

    I performed in New Year's music gig in my home town, celebrated it with my band, colleagues, parents, and new fellows. that was awesome, entertaining people and get entertained at the same time. But time is so fast, it is 11th January today. But I can still feel the euphoria of New Year just like I just celebrated it yesterday. Do you guys feel the same?

      That had to be one exciting moment for you, how long have you been performing?
