I'm Your Vehicle Baby, I'll Take You Anywhere You Wanna Go

New Year's Eve Loaded Tater Tots
Not exactly the party of your dreams for New Year's Eve but fun is a relative term these days.  Loaded tater tots are a blast to make at home (if you're old and lonely).  A bit more filling then chips and you can get much more creative then I did here.  In fact after meat and cheese, you can do small chopped tomatoes, green onions, pickled jalapenos.  Or again, everyone loves a theme, how about pizza toppings, make it Greek, because baked Feta really is all that.  BLT style, you name it, the tot is your oyster.  
R.I.P. to the beautiful soul Thich Nhat Hanh

This new year we could all stand to remember that our minds are not our best friends.  They are useful tools, certainly, but not to be taken too seriously.  On my bike ride home tonight, my brain busied itself by feeding me an ugly scenario that never even happened, and another that did, but years ago.  Yet it got me so riled and upset.  Think about it the next time you flood with negative thought. You recognize it more like a bratty kid brother to send packing out of your room!  Beat it, loser!

We must get past this ignorant stage of our evolution.  And this is not to say we should ignore our gut.  So far, this is a better resource even though it too can steer you wrong on occasion but mine has a fairly good track record.  Every year we allow ourselves to believe we are the being we created in our mind, is another lost.  That's just me being honest, as my sister likes to say.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
