It is about this time of the year when the inevitable question about New Years Resolutions is broached by some well mean or misguided soul. Outside of the usual ones like my resolution not to marry anymore crazy women from Finland or not to fart in public I was pondering what I should do in 2015 in my 5th decade on this green a fetid planet. For starters I am not going to start smoking aromatics, nor am I suddenly going to become some polite and concerned human that worries about the fate of some unusual animal that I have never shot before that is suddenly the cause of the moment among celebrities. I am resolved that I will not attempt to teach Sunday school at a local church, I mean would you want your little diaper bundles of fun coming home with a large dose of Condor cynicism? I think I will just resolve to smoke more of my favorite blend and buy less 'cutty' pipes this year and consume even less scotch than normal! Happy 2015 chaps as I am now official on holiday until January 6th in California!
