I have always been a person that dove into things taking big leaps,but over the years as I look back I never finish.
Now I am taking small steps they make a difference.I am really really learning that small steps make such a big difference. Helen Keller said ," I long to accomplish a great & noble task but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great & noble.

My Goals:
my goal is one " to stay steady the course ".

My Program:
my program is to finish the walk I started out on,not quit halfway thru even if I set a goal for the day of a 15 minute walk ,or to work out on the machines I will finish it. However my program will no longer be of 5 mile walks and beat my self up if I do not finish I will no longer look at the 12 machines & feel like a failure if I do not finish them all. I will swim perhaps 1/2 hr instead of 1 hour.I will no longer bash myself because lack thereof time I should be putting in.

Personal Information:
I am 66 retired ,married to a wonderful husband no children ( not by choice ) We live in North Eastern Pa.I married at the age of 34 for I never wanted to marry. Then I met my husband he had all the qualities in a man I was looking for.He was worth the wait!!

Other Information:
My camera usually goes where I go. I also make cards out of pictures I take. Love history, Love to walk in the rain & like cloudy days they are mysterious to me. Love to camp,go boating.I would rather watch black & white tv rather than color.Love any museums,Love to explore small towns they have lots of history. I love talking to the elderly as they are full of wisdom I love the stories they tell of their life. I buy old letters from the 1800's on up & love reading what it was like back then in their life. I collect old postcards also.

    Judy I'm just responding to your question about how long cruise ships stay in port. It varies, but for the most part the ship travels at night and arrives in the port in the early morning. We stayed overnight at 3 ports, and at the other 4 ports, we arrived in the morning and left in the afternoon or evening the same day. I think they based their decision based on how much there was to do in the ports, and whether the excursions would entail traveling any distance from the ports.

    Hi Judy! Yes Icelandic is a very unusual language. Most people spoke English, but of course the city buses were in their local language. Re trees: Our guide talked about efforts to replant trees in Iceland. Apparently, after the Ice Age, only about 20-40% of the country was left with forest, and the diversity of trees was limited. When humans immigrated to the land, farmers cleared off the forests to plant crops, and wood was also used to build homes and ships. The landscape was completely denuded. Major efforts are underway to replant forests, but it is slow because the growing season is very short in the extreme north!
