So, how are you doing with your New Year’s Resolutions or goals??

Last Thursday (January 17) was the day most people give up on good intentions and fall back into old habits.    But there is good news!

If you stick to your goals, about 40% of us are successful at the six-month mark, according to John Norcross, a psychology professor at the University of Scranton.

Millennials are more familiar with emojis on social media than one of their vehicle’s dashboard warning lights, according to a survey by Goodyear.  The survey of more than 1,000 drivers conducted last fall found that 50% of young drivers were unlikely to identify the ‘tire pressure warning light’, on their dash board.

BTW: The tire pressure monitoring system light indicates that at least one tire is significantly under inflated. Improper tire pressure can lead to uneven tread wear, decreased gas mileage and poor handling.

Good morning friends!

If you have time, I’d like to ask for some special prayers for law enforcement officers and their families today.

We have lost 8 officers and 2K9s already this year, and 2 officers in NC injured in the past week.

The blue family is hurting and would appreciate continued prayers.

*Thank you for your support of Behind the Blue Line!
