I would like to purchase a Hinkley sailboat and spend about five years sailing to the South Pacific and then cruise the Meditereanean(?) Sea.

Photography - I have a really great camera, but no time to play with it. I'd even like to take some classes.

More choices needed.  I selected "You Pick".  I plan to work with a Social Services agency to help underprivileged children succeed in school & gain access to opportunities that more affluent children have.  This would be on a volunteer basis.  Besides this, I need to clean out my closets & organize it.  Also put my loose photos in albums, enter my recipes in the computer, etc.

I have always been fascinated by digging for treasure!  I would love to work on an archeological site, assisting the professionals with whatever they needed, and actually do some digging myself!  What a wonderful feeling it must be to 'discover' that hidden secret!

I think that would be great , too.

  I have not tried them, but, there is a group called Global Volunteers that may have some of those opportunities. 

         Has anyone tried them?
And, I understand the Smithsonian also has volunteer vactions that you may like:

Beekeeping is a Rewarding Hobby

Message 30 of 135 (2,290 Views)
Beekeeping!  I've already started and plan to continue into reitrement as a way to supplement my income and do something good for the environment.  I love what I have learned about bees so far.  I took a course at the local university to begin with and found a mentor.  I joined the local Hobby Beekeepers Association and have made some wonderful contacts with people I would not have gotten to know otherwise.  There are many online forums that offer support and  problem solving.  Last year I was able to give gifts of honey to friends and family members.  This hobby is perfect for people who love being outdoos, have a curiosity for learning about nature, and like interacting with other people with  similar interests.
