Think I had accomplished the 2014 resolution. For 2015, who cares about the new year ... everyday is another day. What's to happen happens no matter what, and after living over half a century, forget change for the better: I am what I am.
I have gone through more new years than care to count. Like Popeye said. I am what I am. I won't be me without the experience of anyone of those prior years. I am looking forward to many more new years to come. Enjoy yours.

Fewer Americans filed applications for unemployment benefits in 2014 than at any time in 14 years as the economic expansion strengthened.
An average 308,500 workers a week filed jobless claims this year, the least since 299,600 in 2000, according to figures from the Labor Department in Washington. Applications climbed by 17,000 to 298,000 in the week ended Dec. 27, more than projected, displaying the typical year-end holiday swings.
Other reports today showed consumer confidence had its best year since 2007, manufacturing in the Chicago region kept chugging ahead and home sales signaled a rebound in coming months, indicating the world’s largest economy is poised to pick up in 2015.

After HP bought the land from Varian in the early 1970s, much of what Jones remembers -- the acres and acres of apricots, the rambling farmhouse -- gave way to an office park. The company was growing like a weed, having just entered the computer business. But it never encroached on the barn.
HP prepared the barn for the future, reconditioning it, replacing the roof and laying a new concrete foundation, says Ed Miller, who was then the company's computer manufacturing manager. Once spruced up, the 1,900-square-foot barn became a focal point of company social life, the site of the annual picnic, retiree reunions and frequent "beer busts," says Mahoney, the former Cupertino mayor, who spent most of his 35 years at HP working on the Cupertino campus.
Before Jobs publicly detailed plans for Apple Campus 2, Mahoney and other public officials got a glimpse of a model. After a briefing by Apple CEO Tim Cook, then the company's chief operating officer, Mahoney says he had one overriding concern: What about the barn?
Cook reassured Mahoney that Apple was well aware of the historic barn but still figuring out the best place for it. Planners ultimately settled on placing the barn near the new Apple fitness center, a place that's sure to be a hub for employees -- and still in public view.
Long retired from HP, Miller, an 82-year-old Los Altos resident, had not heard what would become of the barn after his company sold the land. He was relieved to hear the spaceship and the barn can coexist.
