OK, I realize I’m dating myself here, but I’m hoping that at least some of you will join me in remembering that cult classic kids’ album Free to Be...You and Me .

Last year, I made a weird resolution. I guess it was typical in one respect - that it was intended to end a bad habit and thereby improve my life.
