Goals Brought In By Einstein the Camel in the Snow

Update On Goal Challenge To Keep Focus

#quote A goal without a plan is just a wish

https://gotgoalsbloghop.blogspot.com #GotGoalsBlogHop Thoughts from my WEPFF entry: – Intriguing that so many commenters thought Osiris to be a woman.

Focus First to Fulfill Goals #GotGoalsBlogHop

https://gotgoalsbloghop.blogspot.com #GotGoalsBlogHop I’m the “token guy” (wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokenism) in several online communities. That’s true offline as well.

When someone calls me Jenni. “J” isn’t short for …

June Goals Include Roaring Loud to #KeepFamiliesTogether

https://gotgoalsbloghop.blogspot.com There are things going on in America that have taken my time and attention from other goals. As some of you know, I was taken from my birth parents when I was a child. It wasn’t by the government, but that doesn’t keep me from sympathizing. And no, I don’t have any living children, …
