    Do more of what I do now. Fish, drink beer, type on the internet, cook on the grill, ride in my Kabota RTV on my farm, drink beer, fish, play with the grandkids, go to the beach on the river, fish, and drink beer.

    Ride, ride, ride and ride a little more...

    I did around 10,000 miles last season, I'm planning on 15,000+ this year.

    When the weather turns NICER?????

    In Phoenix it's nice RIGHT NOW, and I'm loving it.

    When summer gets here is when it'll suck. Then, from our perspective, you'll be the smug one enjoying the weather.

    Full spectrum lights, everywhere. I do Vit. D.... Sometimes, St Johns Wort. Grab sunshine at every opportunity. Warmer weather, Walk or just be outdoors a lot. Or take off for the southern states if you can afford it

    Knowing what you have and checking it out on the net is 2/3's the battle. Luck on ya!

    Hide in the AC till summer goes away! I have SAD that's reversed from most people. The winter doesn't bother me in the slightest, but I HATE THE SUMMER. I can shrug off cold and rain and snow as minor annoyances, but heat kills me. 80 degrees is like a huge oppressive lead blanket layed on my body. By the end of summer, I'm just getting adjusted enough so that 80 doesn't completely kill me. Once it cools down, it takes me three days to adjust back to the cool weather. I hate it all the more because I LOVE being outside, and I just can't do that in the summer.

    At least this year I'm retired, and will be spending a lot of time at our house on the coast. Much cooler.

    Yard work, I enjoy it. As soon as we get the cover off the pool, I'm gonna remove about 3' of sod all the way around the patio, and lay some river stone down. I'll use the sod I remove, to fill in some bald spots that never grew when we seeded the yards. Probably finish it off with some low voltage landscape lighting. There's a patio, pool, grass, and fence, it's dull looking out there, and needs some sprucing up.

    Raise the 4x8 garden beds (5) another 12 inches.
    Remove dirt and replace with gravel walk ways.
    Bring in 5+ cubic yards of driveway gravel and spread.
    Bring in about 5 cubic yards of compost and put into garden beds.
    Bring in topsoil for asparagus beds and grapes.
    Get aspagaus and grapes planted.
    Finish retaining walls. About 100 caps and a few wall pieces.
    Plant garden and get items started in green house.
    Time permitting; dig trench and run electrical to green house, remove grass and put in flower beds.
    I am sure the wife has her list that she hasn't told me about yet.
    (And of course try to wear out the BBQ..try to cook and eat outside as much as we can in the summer.
