Happy 010110

It's 2010 and whether you have decided to say, "Twenty-Ten" or "Two-thousand and ten" (My choice) or whether you are a computer-type and you are "geeking" on the fact that today is a binary day with 1's and 0's-- it all really comes down to if you believe that today and the new year that comes with it is a day of celebration and resolve to make changes in your life or just another day in the march of time.

I'm thinking that New Year's Day is a good day to make resolutions or new intentions to make changes where changes need to be made. You don't have to make all your resolutions today, you don't have to begin every new habit today and you don't have to give up every vice today; but it's a good day to resolve to make further resolves about your life and situation.

I'm not declaring any new resolutions or intentions for the new year here on this blog today; but I'm resolving that I will make--if not new resolutions; at least continuing with some ongoing resolutions.

Time marches on without any real limitation set by a calendar, so don't be discouraged if you miss making a resolve today, you have all the rest of the days of the year to make another day YOUR new year day. But today, is as a good a day as any.

"Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols."
--Thomas Mann

"One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things."
--John Burroughs

"Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us."
--Hal Borland

Looking Back On 2009

Today is New Year's Eve, 2009.

As I thought about the past year for this blog entry, I had originally thought, "Not much has happened this year; what do I have to write about? What did I do that bears reflection on the past year?"

Looking back through the last year revealed nothing earth-shattering. I did not achieve fame nor fortune. NBC did not announce that I would take over for Conan O'Brien on The Tonight Show. I didn't get a call from Caroline's asking me to headline for a week in New York City. It was a fairly slow year for comedy. It was a fairly slow year for blogging.

But, things did happen. I made strides. I made progress; and 2009 provided enough to write about that made it worthwhile.

So in tribute to the old year and the coming new year, here's a look behind the time that was 2009 and some assorted "old" and "new" related blog entries.

We got a new President

I lost an old job

I reveal 25 new things about myself

I try a new feature-style blog entry

A new Amway-related controversy

I quit an old job

A new blog interviews me

A new roadside shop opens up

I celebrate 5 old years

My wife starts a new blog

I say Good-bye to an old journalist

I celebrate when old heroes land on a new moon

I got a new job

SuperDu becomes Super New

A new addition to "Links I Like"

Christmas thoughts about my "ole" man

It appears that enough happened in the old year to make me look forward to the new year. I guess I'll get started on that list of new resolutions.

"Sunday Thoughts"

"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."

HAPPY 2009!!!

It's 2009!!!

Happy New Year From "On The Road With Dave"!

I know what you are craving. You wanna a Year-In-Review entry whereby you can take a look at some of the "goings-on" of yours truly in 2008. Well, here ya go...


I started a new blog for "Tex", a noted commenter at other Quixtar blogs, so he could expound on his opinions about the "tool scam" associated with Amway Global/Quixtar Motivational organizations.

I became more "comedy" focused.


I performed in Dallas.


I traveled to Prague for Alticor Corporation.


I held a online "press" conference.

I summarized my trip to Prague.


I was asked to review a book about Historic Mobile, Alabama; I met some Canadians, and my son got a part in a movie.


I performed in Anniston, Alabama.


I said farewell to a great teacher.


I talked about my "day-job".


I "quit" being a Quixtar-affiliated Business owner.


"On The Road With Dave" participated in the annual "Blog Action Day."

I performed in Louisiana.


In November, I got political and made changes to "On The Road With Dave". You'll have to read the whole month.


I celebrated my 25th Wedding anniversary!

That's it! The year in review.

Coming up, I'll be finishing my story about my wife's and I trip to New Orleans for Christmas, with more photos that were recently developed.

I look forward to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2009 for all my readers, as well as myself.

Let's get started.

"Sunday Thoughts"

"We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential."

--Ellen Goodman
