Its now 2008…

Eight years into the new millenium and all the new year resolutions are set. The fun this year will be trying to accomplish them all. Its always been said that the most productive people have diaries and little lists of “things to do”. These little lists are like mini contracts with yourself that states what must be done before the end of the day/week/month/year. The buzz of fulfillment when all the items have been checked of is quite powerful.

This year I have decided to write my new years resolutions on a piece of paper and carry them with me everywhere in my wallet. I want to ensure that I am constantly reminded of what should be achieved this year.

Its very easy to just shrug your shoulders and say “ah well” when you look back on a year and wander where all the time went. I dont want 2008 to be like that. I am hoping that the resolutions in my wallet will be a poke in the right direction and a focus that will enable me to take major steps forward in the progression of McNicholl Holdings.

To think one year ago I was Buying the Domain. It seems so primitive now. Since then I have been programming frantically, in the evenings after work – trying to build a business and a future.

Festive Cheer

I find the festive time a very good chance to reflect and review on what the year has delivered and to prepare for what is to come.

I think now is a good time to reflect on my best blog posts of 2007 (listed in no particular order):

Heres hoping 2008 will be the start of something great.

May all of you have a happy and prosperous new year!

Christmas Cracker Jokes…

Crackers are the mainstay of any Christmas dinner and no matter how expensive they are they are still a source for the worst jokes. I thought a few jokes on the blog might brighten your day, but I appologise in advance for these :

  • Why did the boy throw his toast out of the window?
    • Because he wanted to see the butterfly.
  • What do you call a train loaded with toffee?
    • A Chew Chew Train

I hear you cry “Please stop, oh please please stop” – but no. Here are a few others :

  • Why do cats have furry coats?
    • Because they’d look silly in plastic macs.
  • How do you keep cool at a football match?
    • Stand next to a fan.
  • Where do cows go on holiday?
    • Moo York.

Ok! I’ll stop now.

I just want to know if they actually hire people to write these jokes or if a room full of monkeys with typewriters slap at keys until a few ledgible sentences are formed.

Does anyone else out there remember some cracker jokes?
