Stung into action by a mate who gave me the following advice when I said his plans were very abitious

"Aim for the stars, because if you aim for the streetlight, you may just shoot yourself in the foot!"

I have taken it to heart and prepared my first review of a year and plans for the coming year.

Aiming for the stars is all very well, but you could easily blow up on the launch pad:)

Personally I find a series of achievable steps is the way to go, so your plan seems eminently sensible. Good luck!

I think more of Jane Austin's wine is probably needed

Only one bottle left Cardinal and it has been put in safe storage for an appropriate time.

Napoleons favourite sickly sweet desert wine…… the congress this year perhaps Rich!

The list looks very do-able and as for my musings, "always bite of more than you can chew, better to die with a mouthful, than nothing at all"

good to see you missed the latest lead purchase out of your to do list!!!!!!
