    I've undertaken (for the past three years now) writing an historical novel. The research is deliciously horrendous and involves a massive translating task from a language I know superficially.

    Next year, I plan a solo trip to Germany to invoke my primary characters, know their locale, more research, and intensive writing.

    What projects (outside work and this site) occupy your time?

    I started my project of walking the length of every street in my city of roughly 100.000 population some 20 years ago
    I've lost interest a number of times but what I've seen renews my interest now and again
    I have many more miles to go

    I have increased my exercise, working on my chess trying hard to get back to where I was back some years ago.

    Also, doing my best to goad, goad as much as possible. 😉

    Is coin collecting a project?
    I do know it is an expensive investment.
    Very rewarding to have a hobby/interest that essentially saves your money.
    I guess finding key dates could be a project.
    Other than chess and coins I've got nothing but my rigged good lucks. 😉

    I'd say coin collecting was more of a hobby than project, but what do I know. 😉

    a project would be something you hope to finish or at least try
    a hobby is an on going enjoyment

    I’m learning about crop rotation and growing more vegetables this year. Managed potatoes, leeks, pac choi, rocket, coriander, lettuce, spinach & tomatoes last year. This year including beetroot, butternut squash, carrots & onions.

    I’ve bought a brand new neoprene wardrobe of 4 wetsuits, socks, gloves hood and cap for sea swimming & messing about on a surfboard all year round.

    My Father use to do this crop rotation, it really works!!! I believe he was a little bit a head of the time before people starting doing it.

    Sounds like you are well prepared for the coming apocalypse.
    Self sufficient in food and a cunning escape plan. Respect.

    Adding to my repertoire of newly written tunes I post on Soundcloud, up to 82 now. Maybe 50 originals and the rest traditional tunes and some songs sung by my my wife and friends when we lived in Jerusalem.

    That's impressive. The veggies that is. As far as surfing goes, what's wrong with a slinky little bikini? 😉

    Age x Gravity x Indecent exposure
    I'm no good at math so can someone else come up with the answer?
