    It's ongoing.  I consider my whole life a piece of work and I have had many accomplishments.  I have no idea what is the biggest.  ???


    I mean how about the birth of my daughter or the 3 degrees I earned or the jobs I have worked.  How do you compare that stuff?  Apples and oranges.  I am not good at interview questions.  I hate them.  Sorry.

    You could take a time out and build yourself a boat if there is any water somewhere in Arizona.

    There is Lake Pleasant.  

    What has that to do with the price of corn?

    I helped a friend restore a 32 sailboat. Then he asked me to cruise to Baja with him - That's when the real work started.

    Once I grew 80 pot plants in the bush on Crown land - normally I only grew 20 plants so taking care of 80 was a real challenge.  There was a 2 mile hike up hill to get to the spot and packing all the water there was back breaking - I had calf's and arms like Popeye by harvest time. Cheers and happy weekend!

    I have helped build many houses but not for myself.  I'm hoping to be doing that in the very near future! :)
    I have had and still do have many gardens.  Some flower and rose gardens and some vegetable.
    I wrangled and took care of fields of hay, barns, horses, and cows on 2500 acres in Boulder.  That was good for my soul. I think that qualifies as for myself.
    :) :)
    I have taken care of Don and that is an ever-challenging and fullfilling life investment.  I did that for myself and him.
    I have built a bridge in our yard.
    I have helped re-build an engine for a Susuki Samari.
    I give to many charaties that help the animals and people thoughout the world.

    A business: I used to collect old videogames and was doing a business of selling some on Ebay and making profits from it. Now for certain reasons, I got rid of my entire collection so this business doesnt happen anymore...

    Artworks: I was quite good doing artworks on my computer. Arts , and sometimes arts for a business. a banner, a logo, an avatar, etc.

    I re-roofed my whole house by myself. (My wife helped some and there's still a small spot that hasn't been done.  But what I said is 99% true.)
