What’s new in 2019

I'm not big on New Year's resolutions anymore.  About a year ago I realized that all the goals that I had written down, had been accomplished.  When I made this realization, I decided to make a new goal list. At the end of 2018, I started to get a little overwhelmed by all the books [...]
