    Mine is to become a bona fide climate change denier. It looks like it might be easier than having a valid opinion. I'll start by subscribing to the Daily Mail and the spectator :D

    seriously though - new years resolutions are worthless unless you actually intend to do it.

    so on that basis - I think very hard before committing myself - and so far this year nothing comes to mind that i'm not doing already.

    Took me a while to get this.....

    I suppose my only NYR would be to get qualified on PPL and onto the CPL/ATPL course.

    And that is all. Oh and get an amazing physique. Oh and be a better person. :roll:

    I've done it for the last 357 days with only 8 more photos to take in 09

    It's been a great distraction to the work a day week.

    Why not try it.

    Don't forget you don't have to be a good photographer, I'm amazed how much I feel I've improved in my picture taking.

    About half the UK photographers on there are mountain bikers

    I think mine might be to drink more Belgian beer. Just discovered I like it and realise I've been wasting my life.

    1) Lose some of the beer gut.
    2) Get fitter and ride more.
    3) Try and understand why commuters film their rides for entertainment purposes then post them on forums.
    4) Try and understand the point in fixies.
    5) Pull the gorgeous blonde in the pub who thinks I am only 24 (silly mare)
    6) Be kinder to Orange owners.
  • 1) Get out and drink more

    2) Lose weight ( gonna be hard with number 1)

    3) Try this picture a day lark - looks like fun.

    4) Sort out my sleeping patterns

    5) Do more work, when i get it, not leaving it all until a day before.

    Go big or go home.

    I'm going to spend more time riding, and less time talking about rides...

    I'm with you on 4} but I fear you're onto a loser trying to understand why.
  • supersonicsupersonic Posts: 82,708 Lives Here
    Yep, my mind just won't accept fixies! I love retro and all that, but there is a good reason why cars don't have wooden wheels any more ;-)

    Sure is, why not start early and do one today :?:

    Today I'm not sure which to use from this mornings dog walk
    This one of the first snow angel of the year
    1-33.jpg

    Or this on or Archie the Snowman critic
    2-23.jpg

    But then the secret is not to post up too early as you don't know what else you can snap during the day, take a look later to which (if either of these) I picked.

    Great idea!! I've just had a look through them (supposed to be working, but why would I want to be doing that!) Theres some really good pics there!

    As for me, I need to give up the occasional smoking, get fit, and enter a few events.

    I also need to take more care of my bike, and build up a second bike (A cheap little HT for occasional use, and for the missus to use!)

    Has to be the dog one, that's priceless. You can easily make another snow angel tomorrow (or boxing day) whereas claiming a snowman as your territory may only happen the once :lol:

    Actually,

    1. Move out, get my own place (with a bike workstand in the lounge of course!)

    2. Get a girlfriend (who isn't a mentalist sex addict......oh sure it sounds fun now, trust me, it's not good!)

    3. Cheer up! :D
