I guess I could loose a few (????) kilos, and I am still helping the kids through Uni, I am still trying to convince people that you can grow roses on the Sunshine Coast, I do need to spend more time with Lee, I do need to start a bit of a fertilizer regime, I could do with some more exercise, I guess I could spoil my Lee a bit more and I could stop using my mobile so much, once my shoulder is better I could work to improve my golf swing, I could start on the renovations in the kitchen and bathroom that Lee wants to happen this year (I guess seeing that neither are really finished from when we built the house back in the 80's it's fair enough), I suppose in that line of thinking I could actually finish the house, and I could fix the fences so the horse does not escape again and....

But we are well and our kids are great so life is just about perfect.

Well said Gary, they say there is always tomorrow, I am told it never comes. I might 'procrastinate' and think about it for a while.

Need to give my roses more love and attention.
Need to somehow earn more $ so I can buy more roses. (The resolution of "try not to go broke" is closely related)
Need to pat more sheep.

AD are you an expatriate New Zealander?
John you must be very handy with a cue  if you are vying for a position in the state team.

Well done John. My dad was very handy with a cue as a number of my mates found out the hard way over the years. There were two sports I didn't take too these being swimming and any game with a cue otherwise I was reasonably competent.

Now that you mentioned it, swimming was one of the things I did pretty well even up till this day. I seemed to have a natural affinity for water, weather on top or underneath

I was a good swimmer (runs in the family with both my mother and my son being really good) but could not hit a ball with a cue to save my life.

Another resolution I have is to make rosarians aware of the recently published  book "Growing Roses in a Subtropical Climate" written by NRSA President Paul Haines. Written in easy read language with a good selection of photographs the book a complete overview of the growing of roses in the subtropics. Both the AQ and I believe the book to be the best  written for every day rosarians in many years. The book is available at leading nurseries Swanes and Treloars or through the Queensland Rose Society website. All monies raised by the sale of the book go to the Queensland Rose Society.

I meant to mention this the other day when I received my copy but have been immersed in it since receiving it. It's quite a good book even though it, as Paul says, "is aimed more at the lover of modern roses" as "Heritage Roses generally require much less attention", it does contain a lot of valuable information regarding soil, nutrients and pests and diseases etc.

You can also order it direct from Paul (and get a signed copy):

I may not be into making New Year's Resolutions, but I will definitely be ordering Paul Hains book on growing roses in a sub-tropical climate - a nice change from the plethora of rose books based in cooler southern states and/or northern hemisphere climates.
A pity about the heritage roses not being included ... there's still another book to write - Hey! Now there's a New Year's Resolution !

As Paul says in his book, heritage roses do not need the attention and do not suffer as much as modern roses do.

Sure, Balinbear, ..."As Paul says in his book, heritage roses do not need the attention and do not suffer as much as modern roses do" ...

but it would be good to have a book that talks about heritage roses in a sub-tropical climate as a reference, along the lines of the Tea Roses book (Chapman et al) that focuses on growing in a warm climate.

If you two really want to know my new years resolutions they are to do last years ones. They are to get on top of my weed seed bank, train my climbers up something, do some rose breeding.
Hows that, if you notice they are R rated, rose rated
