Cheers to you, my blog readers!  Here are my suggested resolutions for 2022 (and, yes, I know they are almost exactly the same as for 2021):
Stay Alive.  Stay Healthy.
1)  Wash your hands frequently
2)  Practice social distancing (try to stay at least 6 feet away from other people)
3)  If you have to gather, gather outside (but still remember #2)
4)  Wear a mask anytime you are outside your home and any time you answer the door!
5)  Get your vaccination / booster shots as soon as your opportunity comes up.
Please have a happy (and safe) New Year’s Eve!

And then you throw it away

First off:  Merry Christmas to all… !!
Second:  Hug everyone at your table and say a prayer of blessings for absent friends and family.
Third:  Please remember in your thoughts all of the first responders and essential workers who are risking their health and the safety of their families to be on the job where we need them.  Police, firefighters, EMTs, health workers, PPE and vaccine manufacturers, supermarket / food-store / essential services staff, transportation (truck drivers and delivery) staff,  our military defending us around the world and our civilian government employees working to keep our water, food and air clean.
Finally:  Please, please, please… 
Wash your hands frequently
Wear a mask when out of your home
Practice social distancing (particularly indoors), and,
Get your vaccine / booster shot(s) as soon as you are eligible.
