A Day Picking, Exercising, and Watching A Movie

Also Had a WMG Meeting…

That was how the day started, with a WMG Meeting, then Kris and I managed to head into the valley and I dropped her off to watch a movie at a theater there and went picking. I spent exactly $73.10 for an entire trunk of stuff. My gut sense is we’ll sell or try to sell all of the stuff I found for just under a thousand. It might be more, depending on the brand names of some of the silk ties I got.

You can get a lot of silk men’s ties for $1.19 a pound. And a ton of silk scarves. Plus a few kids books for 35 cents each and some toys and kids backpacks for the stores, plus a very large tub of Lego stuff. Looks to be older Lego stuff. A pretty good two hours of picking.

Then Kris and I had a nice dinner, did a bunch of walking to get our steps, then came home and watched the big DC Comics crossover Crisis on Earth-X. All four parts of that together have to be one of the best superhero movies done. Killing Nazi’s is always great fun to watch superheroes do. (grin)


A reminder, if you have any desire to take a Strength Workshop or two, you have until Monday the 4th to sign up. You can go through the workshops at any point in the future.

The Strength Workshops are six workshops. You can one, two, or all six. Check the link on the right side for deals.

You want to see how you are doing in different areas, there are two craft, two business, two  sales. All about the same size as a normal six-week regular workshop, only these Strength workshops you do on your own pace. You might be amazed at what you know and what you need to work on.

And Kris and I both read each assignment and give you feedback on where you are at with each area we test. It is an eye-opener for some who find areas they are good at and areas they need to work on.

Link on the right with the other workshop links.

Remember, these STRENGTH WORKSHOPS are only open for sign-ups until next Monday, then we shut down sign-ups. Once in, you have as long as you want to take the classes.



December Workshops will be starting on the 5th. If you are signed up, I will send you a code to get into the workshop this coming weekend.

There are now two ways to sign up for the Regular Monthly workshops. Either write me directly and have me sign you up on the list or simply click sign-up on Teachable.

Those of you with credits from either the Kickstarter or the certificate special we just offered, you must write me to sign up.

Those who would just like to sign up directly can do so on Teachable at any point. December workshops are there.

Nice to have some options on signing up finally.
