I didn't necessarily make resolutions for 2006. I didn't curl up with a pen and a journal, reflecting on the last 365 days of my life while jotting down promises I know I'm not gonna keep. I just woke up the morning after a nice New Year's Eve party (slightly hung over, of course) and started doing different stuff. Like tidying up my apartment, something I seemingly never did last year. And two weeks ago, I started visiting the fitness room at my apartment complex. There's this big, nifty thing I've been using in there called the treadmill.

After collecting an estimated 350,000 vinyl records, Ken Hudson considers his tiny Catonsville record store more a museum than a business. It's not Picassos and da Vincis that adorn the walls of this museum. The artwork here consists of covers from long-forgotten albums - Lou Rawls' "Too Much," Ray Charles' "Crying Time" and Quincy Jones' "Smackwater Jack." Hudson and his brother, Jim, have accumulated the black discs, sheathed in paper and cardboard sleeves and occupying countless shelves, over the past 16 years at Music Man Oldies, at 808 Ingleside Ave. As record curator, Hudson estimates that he cares for about 250,000 of the 45-rpm records once so popular with teen-agers and about 100,000 long-playing albums, many of which have found their final resting place in the store.
