New Years Resolutions that We can all share together for the common good






Yes, it is that time of year to make and in some cases, already break, New Year's Resolutions.

I thought that maybe we could share together some New Year's Resolutions that we wouldn't break, and that we could easily commit to.

You guys know how much I love to hug. That aside, you might assume that I would also be a "tree hugger". You'd be right again.

So how about we try this spring to plant a tree. If each of us would commit to planting a single tree, a seedling would do, and help to nuture it, we would be doing our collective share in making the air a little cleaner and the environment a little better.

Likewise, we all set personal goals for ourselves, be it losing weight, gaining muscle, etc. Let's pledge to help each other with these personal goals. That way, it won't feel so lonely trying to do it alone.

An idea I saw on Ellen during the holidays, about loose change, could also be something we could do collectively and give to a favorite charity, gay or straight. A lot of our biker buds out there have favorite charities which we could devote some of our loose change in helping others.

Feel free to add your own ideas. You make this a place great to hang because you guys are the best. Never forget that.

Hoping you all are having a great start to the New Year. Together we can make it fun and sexy.

Everybody should turn a light off, plant a tree and wack-off at least once more per day (in addition to hot sex) - the world will be a better place!

Given all the lies, arrogance, homophobia and pig-headedness coming out of the Bush administration for six years, I suggest a New Year's resolution for U.S. guys to support the Democratic majority in the Congress in bringing this deeply unfortunate chapter in our history to a quick end.

Leave it to Buff to find the best New Years resolutions... I love the one about planting and nuturing a tree - we can never have too many trees...

For extra points, make it a native tree :)
I second the wacking off, too.

Buff,

You may want to consider a variation of a rather interesting Jewish custom: As you may know, it is considered a breach of etiquette to send flowers to a Jewish funeral (I suppose because flowers also die). Instead, many Jews pay for planting a tree in Israel in the person's memory; most Jewish communities have an agency that arranges this.

This idea can be extended to planting trees--- not necessarily in Israel, and not necessarily through an established agency--- to commemorate all sorts of things. My father, for example, planted a tree in our garden to commemorate each of his children's births. It's simply a nice way of celebrating major events in your life that you can see growing as time passes. Both my sister and I grew up with "our trees" in the garden.

Good idea about the trees!

I gave up making resolutiuons on the NY boundary and instead do them randomly throughout the year.

I always break my new year resolutions. But seeing all the buff pictures on here has inspired me to start a good diet and to keep going to the gym.
