Resolutions Redux

HR over at Hoosier Happenings, recently posted a "report card" on his progress anent his New Year's resolutions. Made me decide to revisit mine. And yes, I do have these written down. A detailed report card is not necessary. Suffice it to say, I am doing very well with these.

I am well past the milestone “three score and ten.” Life has been good. I have been blessed. I want for nothing. And there are some things I am resolved to do, or to do no longer.
I will not consume 2 per cent, 1 per cent or any other blue form of milk. I will drink whole milk because I like it.
I will eat butter, not margarine; and I will fry my foods, both pan and deep.
I will consume raw vegetables or well-cooked vegetables, but not steamed half-cooked veggies.
The vegetable intake will include generous portions of potatoes, American fried, French fried, hash-browned, mashed with butter and cream--and with gravy on board!
I will eat foods properly salted and peppered to good taste.
I will use sugar, not artificial sweeteners. Pies, cookies, cakes, ice cream. Yum, yum!
I will consume in excess of twelve cups of coffee per day. It is my drink of choice.
I will ignore, nay scoff at, the “food police” whose assistance is not only not needed, it is not wanted.

I love this. And I "whole"heartedly agree on your whole milk stance. Anything else is water.
