    My new year's resolution was to stop drinking diet soda - specifically diet Mountain Dew. I was drinking 20 + ounces of diet Mountain Dew each day, some days as much as 40 ounces. Since 2005 I have...

    Congrats on the new bike! It is sharp. I think new bikes are even more of a high than a new car. Maybe because they cost less and are way more fun to ride.

    As someone who believes that those...
