Now that the season to be jolly is history we’re in the season to seriously look back at what we’ve accomplished in 2011. And, to look forward to what we’ll pretend we want to accomplish in the coming year. Except, not me. When it comes time to make New Year’s Resolutions, I’m a no-show. Looking […]
