Best Tip for 2009 & Etc (REFRESHED)

BIG SIGH!!!! camera in hospital and discovered my old camera also not working... life sucks!
But my dieting (or rather, food portioning) and exercise is going great! I am now walking 6~1km rounds (well this morning i.e.!) I having been walking 5~1km rounds this entire week! and I lost (yet again) that two lbs which crept back up on me when my head was turned the other way.... hoping to be 149lbs by CNY (and I believe I got an extra 15 days from 26th Jan to achieve this!)...... LOL!
NO NEW PICTURES TO SHARE SO RECYCLING!
Came across the following site and here is a great tip for 2009!

"Stop waiting for happiness.
Happiness is right here, right now."

DH has a habit of leaving his face washcloth in the sink with the tap dripping after using it and returning a hour and a half later after his morning walk to turn it off... Got him this to reduce his wastage of water!!
