I no longer make resolutions as I'm sure to disappoint myself! I’m not very organized in my research; I can start looking for one thing and end up digging into something totally different. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing; it keeps things interesting. So I present here my ongoing To Do List, in no particular order. I’ll be quite happy if I get three or four things from the list done this year!
