New Year's resolutions are easy to keep if you make them simple and doable.
Years ago, I used to play a game with my mother on New Year's Eve and over the years my resolution—and hers—evolved into this, which I'd like to share.
"Run more miles and eat more vegetables."
These days I do more walking, but you get the point.
Moreover, according to my research, wine is both a fruit (when it's plummy, with black cherries, or has figs, apples and pears) as well as a vegetable (when it's herbaceous, with bell pepper, tomato, onion skin and garlic notes), so it's OK to keep drinking wine.
One more item before wishing you a prosperous New Year.
A few readers have asked how I could possibly drink all the wines I write about and not have serious hangovers.
Well, years ago, I did have a few episodes of overimbibing, and always regretted it.
But the past few years I usually get tired and head to bed before I can get into serious trouble.
Do you have any tips for avoiding hangovers?
Also, what are your New Year's resolutions?
See you next year.
