I went off the New Year’s resolution trap a few years back, simply because they never worked. But because I like to mark the new year with something that represents a change, for the past two years, I have picked one topic/theme that I want to concentrate on, and do something about it.

Life does not come with a guarantee or a schedule so why not appreciate the little things that make a difference.

I am sure most of us at one time have Googled our name or a friend’s name. It can be an interesting and sometimes a pleasant experience to discover a positive (or sometimes negative!) comment or news about you, how many people have the same name, what do they do as living, where in the world are they, how many of you there are.
