THE 100 THING CHALLENGE..... COULD YOU DO IT??? WOULD YOU EVER WANT TO??

Since joining Seaknots I've found that the one thing soon to be cruisers need to do is downsize....a lot. There is something cleansing when one purges stuff. I've found this to be true with each move I make. Downsizing from a 6000 sq. ft. house to an eight room to a 4 room. But as a former antique dealer I like nice things and it's not always easy to get rid of stuff, nor do I really want to. Then there's clothes, books and shoes...the list goes on. There currently is a trend started I think…

2007 Carnegie Lecture - Dee Caffari - Dare, Dream, Discover, Inspire - First woman to solo around the world & the wrong way

She had never solo sailed before! Awesome video, about 54 minutes long. She had done it once before with 17 crew.... yeah, that would be doable, 6 crew....maybe, 4 crew..you'd have to really talk me into it..right boat, skipper..possibly could be convinced. Solo... forget about it! Enjoy !!!!!

Now that it is over. . .

Now that the International Sunfish Masters Regatta is over I have several thoughts. First, it is true that we become what we focus on. Second, perseverance is my strength. Third, I will win a major event. Perhaps it is a bit narcissist but I believe with proper training and positive reinforcement my dreams will come true.

Great Grand Master

Wow, as if being a master sailor wasn't enough, I learned that indeed, I am a great grand master sunfisher. All I needed to do was age 60 years and the title befell me.

I want the wrinkles on my face to soothe themself back into the creamy soft sensual feeling of my youth. Though in my younger years I never even considered…
