    Just hang in there and keep looking and posting ads. I played games for 2 years before I landed something good, that is still alive and well.

    Just a word of advice, try to shoot for an existing gigging band that is replacing their guitarist. This was my situation and it works better than the people having a mid life crisis wanting to get a band together again, until the first time there wife complains about it. Then their little mid life fantasty is over. Find something already time proven.

    Continue doing what I'm doing and *hopefully* get as near as I can to 100% recovery from that stupid accident.

    I'm impressed. Some good ones in here!

    I'm usually in the category of "just make it through one more". This year has a long list.

    The first is complete the purge. Much progress already made. The taste of seeing stuff gone makes me thirst to see it all gone. Same office for 30 years. Same house for 24 years. The amount of non-essential crap I've accumulated in both is staggering. I've had help too. Kids have always believed storing it at the folks house was OK. Still have way too much of our parents stuff from emptying their places. Closets, cabinets, drawers, garage, attics, storerooms, file cabinets.... all spaces are getting a make over.

    April 1 if I own it, it's something I need.

    Inspired by Mal’s post, I’m going to try to do more things this year simply because they make me or my wife smile.

    Cheers

    That is weird. Serbs are usually pretty good with a poker face.

    My dad had a buddy who was Russian, not Serbian, but completely impossible for anyone to read. He was Spetsnaz. Scary dude.

    I wish 2018 not to be as bad as 2017... at the whole country level (Egypt)..

    For a personal goal, get my wife a new car in 2018 :D
    I did it for myself in 2017.. now it is her turn... If GAS leaves me alone in 2018, I can do it :laugh2:

    To jam with.

    What a great name for a band! Danohat!!!:band:

    My goal is to keep moving in a positive direction, to continue to get up and keep moving in a positive direction no matter how many times I get knocked on my ass. Keep on keeping on!

    Improve communications skills:
    • Be a better listener.
    • Learn not to react in a defensive way.
    • Not allow other's negativity to bring me down.
    Finally record an Instrumental CD.
