Last night was nice; Lisa and I went to her friends house, then we all went to a local pub / lounge for the countdown. I closed my eyes so Lisa was the last thing I saw in 2006 and the first thing I saw in 2007.

Sully's 2007 Resolutions:

1. Do some volunteer work that helps people - I have been really lucky and it's time to start helping out people who haven't had the same good fortune.
2. No french fries or breading - I want to live to 100, or at least not spend the last 20 years of my life as an obese invalid.
3. Alcohol no more than one night a week - See #2, above
4. Invest some money - For the past 15 years I have been used to living paycheque to paycheque and it's time I updated my mindset
5. Get a pet - I want a cat so bad I feel like I miss my cat even though I don't have one, if that makes any sense.
6. Take a course in something that interests me - "use it or lose it" applies to brains as well as muscles. Maybe the history of Gothic music or a cooking class or maybe a drama class.
7. Add something to my aviation license - whether it's an instructor rating or a new type rating, I want to keep building my qualifications. I'm taking the Transport Canada Approved Company Check Pilot course in February which is a start. After I finish that class I'll be able to do PPC checkrides on company pilots, which sounds pretty interesting. But the ACP course is only the beginning; one of my flight instructors at Selkirk College had 75 type ratings and I want to beat that number.

2006 was pretty freakin' awesome, so I'm looking forward to 2007.

Haunting flying story coming right up...

About the cat. Do you have allergies? If so, spend the money and get an abyssinian or some cat that does not have that pesky dander. And about investing....GOOD PLAN.Age 55 might seem a long way away, but trust me, by then you will be looking at the accumulated income and investmetns and dreamng of a quieter life, less work and more fun.KM
