I was so excited to receive my sextant in the mail along with Starpath's Celestial Navigation class. I can see they'll be teaching this old dog some new tricks! I am a firm believer that for every electrical/electronic system on board, we need a mechanical/non-electrical back-up. So, Nobeltec move over for some good ole' fashioned geometry. I want you to know, math was not my favorite subject back in my school days of yor, and I have limited knowledge of astronomy. Grant it, I can find Orion, Ursus Major, the sun and the moon, but that's about to change! I am learning a lot, but with the rain and more rain, I expect that taking the sights will have to wait awhile.

It was my mother's fault. Of course my dad seriously contributed to my downfall. He admits it quite gleefully when pressed, giving an abundance of fuel to the flames. Yes, they ruined me beyond repair. My husband suggested that perhaps some sort of twelve step program would cure me. I did quit, for a whole year, but fell off the proverbial wagon. I blame my husband too. He does admit to sabotaging my best efforts. Oh, so you say I am setting blame onto others for my downfall, but it is honest and truthful as you will soon discover.
