    * New Year’s Resolution

    I’ve only made one this year .. and it will be documented on the Battling-Obesity blog

    * Some of HART’s Anti-Predictions

    We received 29 cm of snow December 31, 2006 .. that’s a lot of snow to shovel out and still have a great time for New Year’s Eve .. but, alas .. we didn’t last past 2:00am .. and woke up with some sore muscles.

    I couldn’t help thinking on New Year’s Day .. should I be making preductions for 2007 .. just like everybody else is doing?

    Well – I’m an accountant by trade, and I deal more with the after-the-fact results than the pro-forma projections and predictions. So .. WHAT IF… I made up some nonsense statistics of imaginery events that probably could have happened but most likely didn’t happen in 2006 instead .. You know the ones – the ones that nobody can prove or disprove or argue … (just like these predictions that are being made)

    And remember what HOMER says ..

    Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. 14% of people know that.
    Homer Simpson

    …… like …….

    * that although 73.6% of American youth between the ages of 12-17 have internet access .. only 16.2% know where the phrase “”What would Brian Boitano do?” came from!

    But then – I got bored and stopped writing them down. Now I can’t remember any of the other ones (and some of them were good!)
