Since this is the end of the year, and it is a good time to reflect on the previous year and make resolutions for 2008, I have included this fun and informative list entitled, “69 Mini Philosophies on Just About Everything”.  I found it on a site that I regularly visit called www.hellomynameisscott.com.  This is a little bit different from my video format, but I think it is more meaningful when it is read by you.  Also, from time to time when I come across some useful information like this, I will do a more traditional post.  Here it is:
