  2. ... to tell you she's off to her own blog now, inspired by your incredible list of goals for the new year, humbled by the fact that you'll probably achieve each goal with room to spare when she has never really taken the time to even think about goals let alone have the gumption to see them through. She'll take the time tonight to see what she can come up with. And she'll let you know if she has any hope of seeing any of them through.

    Here's where she's at: www.donnafleisher.typepad.com

    later!

  5. Gads! You're a machine! Well, the way the auto industry is going, I'll have plenty of free time coming to me. Of course, I'll actually have to sell something then.

  7. You've got great goals, Camy! I'll post my goals in one of the next couple of days, probably on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day. ::rolls eyes::

    But, I want to know more about these articles based off the Dwight V. Swain book. Is there any way I can read a copy off of those?
