The house is sold, we're retired, a couple of potentially nasty health issues loom in the next couple of years, so while there's time - we're thinking of doing something that (for us) may be wild and crazy. We're thinking of going to Disney... Read more

I came across a blog - perhaps more of an essay - this morning, as I was 'net-surfing. The author captures much of what I think, and much of what I need to think, if that makes sense. Give it a read: www.yahoo.com/health/exp

I don't do streaks well. I suspect it's mixed up with an all-or-nothing mentality with perfectionism thrown in. You know. A or F, and it darned well better be the perfect A. Add sore loser to the mix: if it's not a perfect A / blue ri... Read more
