10 Things

 OK. Time for my New Year Resolution list. I think I missed the meeting somewhere where people decided that resolutions were uncool. We’re supposed to call them something else now?

Plasma or LED?

I posed that very question on twitter yesterday. We are getting ready to buy a new tv for our house. It’s been a long time…we have never been very tech-saavy with all the latest gadgets. We don’t even have cable, so a super-nice souped-up tv has never been on the agenda. But now it’s time…
