Dax James – My resolution for 2015 is to go to more of my children’s activities than the previous year, even if it means burning vacation days.
Ginger Hipp – The only thing I’d like to do differently this year is learn to ride my mare bridleless. And lose 20 pounds, get rich, have a maid and a Puerto Rican pool boy. You know, just the normal resolutions.

Manninglive.com launched mid-January, and flew under the radar for a couple of weeks.
That’s how we wanted it. A soft launch, as they call it, would allow us to work out the kinks and see what worked and what didn’t.
We were still finding our way when we were bombarded by not one, but two ice storms, two weeks apart. The first was merely an “appetizer” for the second one, which left more than 12,000 in Clarendon County without power. Some remained without power for more than 10 days.
Altogether, Santee Electric Cooperative and Duke Progress Energy had 20,000 Clarendon… Read the rest

I am going to try treating people a little better being mindful of the fact that at any given moment everyone has something going on in their life. I am going to try eating a little healthier to take better care of myself. I want to try a little harder walking the path laid out for us all in “The Good Book of Life.”
