I’ve been picking up phrases and words by watching Anime. I’ve linked to a few Japanese instructors, have the Rosetta Stone, and read about the culture as often as I can. I hope to make a trip out there someday soon as well. 8 months ago

First admissions, then the tour, next financial aide, and then on to the fun stuff! 8 months ago

Finally- after years of wanting and even one botched attempt- my beau and I went up like Up and sailed the wine country skies.
Sonoma County was a nice floor to our basket and we had a few fellow travelers with us as well. 1 1/2 hours in the air with 10 other guests made for a relaxing, easy going trip up and down by the will of the wind. 10 months ago
How I did it: I originally began the effort to strengthen my legs because my knees were falling apart at the tendons because of an old sports injury.
A year or so later, and after starting of consistent and then maintaining a healthy relationship with the stairs, I can successfully say I have strengthened my legs - at least enough to stop the hurt on my knees.
Next is to strengthen them more, and get them tone. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
I played a harp, and started to get the hang of it… when I gave my rental back and stopped. I hope to pick it up again in the future. 18 months ago
