I am planning to retire about mid 2014 if all plans go as expected. After that I hope to continue working at something that I would normally consider a hobby. - Not sure what this will be yet, but I am looking at opportunities.

"If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. "Here comes number seventy-one!"
