From all the good advice you give, James, one would never know you've battled heart problems. You've just gone over a bump in the road in 2013, but you have a whole new year to do all the things you want to accomplish. Have a prosperous 2014 and a healthy one.

Carol, bless you and I hope your future is full of health and love.

Jowen, Happy Birthday! Time does fly, doesn't it?

James, shame on you! I'm sure you can quit without spooking sweet little children and pestering animals. You should write an article on the dangers of the mood swings that control you when you're trying to quit and backpedal into why you shouldn't start in the first place, told from the point of view of a cigarette. 8-) And then let us read it.

If this comes up for a second time, then I've had too much OJ. Nhope, you really hit the nail on the head. I'm still laughing. James why not take her advice and write super duper story and let us all read it. What a great way to begin the new year. All who agree say yeah!!!

Lillies, good to hear your positive thoughts from your mature vantage point!

James, good luck with quitting smoking. I have not had to kick that particular habit, but I know many who have, and there's nothing more difficult to quit, so they say. Good on you for doing it.

For writing accomplishments in 2014 I hope to focus my weekly column on smaller topics and go deeper.

How nice to hear about what you all have done and you all hope to accomplish this year and next year.

James, years ago when in grade school ( Lord that was ever so many years ago) once every other month we would have a guest speaker or a special movie for the entire school to hear/watch. There are two that I remember. One: A man came and told us about the bed effects of smoking. He had a healthy lung and a smoker's lung. I think they were preserved in some chemical. The healthy one was pink and the smoker lung was black. I guess it made such an impact on me I never had the desire to smoke, although I did try it twice. It lasted one week each time, as the morning after taste was so horrible I couldn't stand it. That was enough for me. Tales out of school (now alcohol was a different subject, we can go into that at another time). I will support you all the way James, if my husband can quit cold turkey I think you can gather the muster to hold fast. He owned a restaurant/cocktail lounge for over 60 years and had to be among smokers every day. One day someone bet he could not stop smoking. He took his pack of cigarette and smashed the on the bar. He never smoked again. That was over 50 years ago and he's 95 now. If he can do it being among smokers and tempted, so can you. I will be your biggest rooting section and I want reports on your splendid progress.
