New Goal: Run a half marathon! Just signed up with my coworkers to run the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in Brooklyn, NY on October 10th. I ran in the New York City Marathon 13 years ago but haven't run long distances since. This is going to be challenging but rewarding!
New Goal: I will set up at least 2 Langstroth hives in the spring of 2016. I just got a great deal on a ton of beekeeping equipment which includes a large separator, drain barrel, solar oven and frames to set up at least a dozen hives. I would love to have all of them set up by the end of summer but I'm only setting an initial goal of 2 hives. Once accomplished, I'll set more goals.
New Goal: I just purchased Steven Harris' Battery Bank videos. By the end of September, I will install a tool box in my F350 and install a Mobil Battery Bank. Also, by the end of September 2015, I will have a Home Battery Bank installed. I already have 4 huge 8D batteries from my company that are only 2 years old. They weigh 120+ pounds each (as much as 2 GC2 batteries).
New Goal: I will set up targets at various distances on my property and learn to shoot. I have had my concealed carry permit in New York for 8 years but have never had a gun to carry...until last month. Now I need training. I am also going to contact one, or more, local instructors for additional training.
