Thanks for the challenge in the December edition.
I am re-cycling "me" this year. After following my
"day-job-trade" for the past 25 years, I need to take on a new "day-job." My vision is to develop an Internet model trains supply business. This will be no simple task, and, based on the survey I have been taking over the past two weeks, it portends to involve a lot of time and attention to a myriad of details, ...and a bit of luck.
However, by having model trains available all of the time, I expect to extend my skills in building, custom building, and and kit-bash-building. This offers some opportunity for creative expression. I like that already. I believe there are people who like model
railroading, but do not necessarily like to build
everything from kits, or from scratch "just for the
fun of it."
AND, when I get my act straightened out a bit (recovering
from a recent stroke), I will expand into this new venture
with a full head of steam. Now, a full head of steam,
will be encompassed into my physical limitations set by my cardiologist (stroke last month, two heart attacks a few
years ago, ...all this stuff accumulates perniciously),
and write some articles for you to consider publishing.
Much more, later.
