It is Hard to believe I’ve been writing these Pop Expose’s for over a year now. I hope everyone has enjoyed them. Some weeks I think I need an editor but you all get the raw deal. 2015 was a wild and crazy year, its been highlighted by Gay marriage, Black Lives matter, ISIS, and Trump. I try and look back to my previous New Year and see if I did make changes through the year and better my life, the people around me, and/or even a stranger’s life.
People are not perfect and I think it is important to mature from year to year, and when we trip and fall, if we can pick our self up and still look forward and still see a goal to strive for, then I think we are still on the right path. 2015 was a great year for me, I buckled down mid year and decided to move my health in a better direction, by cutting down consumption of everything bad I put into my body and increase everything that would help preserve it. This year I want to push into 2016 with a new attitude, healthier is better. One thing I like to do is look back at the past 12 months and remember some events from each month.
January – Oregon is upset by Ohio in the NCAA Football Championship game. Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks dies at age 83, he played his entire 19 year career with the Chicago cubs.
