Day 98 - Pengun Plunge Goes Down

Sorry for the long time between blogs, I`m sure no one died form holding their breath...

#26 - So one of the ones that I was regretting the most has been crossed of the list. Myself, Jordan and Mo all did the Penguin Plunge in Winsted Lake 2 weeks back. it is the only penguin plunge in the state (that I know of) that you literally jump into the water, most of the other ones you kind of run in from the shore... Well anyway, It was 13 degrees that day and the water temperature was 2 degrees. Here is the proof:



I want to thank my buddy Timy for helping us get warm after at his house. That shower was the best shower of my life and the nap on the couch was awesome too... Thanks Timmer!


I have also been busy reading:

#72 - Read 50 Books: (10/50)
John Grishams` - The Broker
Doyle Brunsons` - Super System
Tom Clancys` - Patriot Games
Michael L. Kurtz` - The JFK Assassination Debates: Lone Gunman Versus Conspiracy
David Dunbars` - Debunking 9/11 Myths
David Griffens` - Debunking 9/11 Debunking
Randy Pauschs` - The Last Lecture
... Bonnie Szumskis` - Are Conspiracy Theories Valid?
... Lifes` - The American Journey of Barack Obama
... Harvey Frommers` - Remembering Yankee Stadium

#56, #57, #58 - I have taken the steps to make these three things become a reality. Next Sunday I will be able to cross of two of these hopefully and then #58 should follow about a year or so after. If all goes to plan.

#74 - I have not had a drink since Johnny came down from Boston with Donny and Vinny and that was Saturday, January 24th. So only 6 days left and I`ll cross that one off the list. I don`t think I am de-toxing but my head has been very dizzy lately, hopefully the lack of alcohol for a month will in some way make me a better person, not to mention my tolerance going down significantly. Guess I just ruined the previous statement.. Anyway.

#96 - The Cactus I got for Christmas is sill alive and well!

Ok that's All I got for right now! Might do some caching today so I will keep the updates rolling. Thank for looking!

Good to see you're still chugging along bro. These long term goals make it difficult to cross anything off these lists. Keep at it.
