    I like what Mark Twain said, “ Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that You didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor”. Cruising does that for me. They ask for volunteers, I raise my hand and wave it like crazy. Positive side I have won some nice prizes. Bottles wine, t-shirts, and other nice things. Negative I won’t see these people again ever. Thanks for raising my spirits and thinking about what I like to do. Keep up good work. I like your articles.
