I sense a lot of us here are lifelong learners, eager to acquire new knowledge and skills (beyond winemaking, even ). I am thinking of avocational pursuits, but things that are beyond just "hobbyist" activities, maybe activities that require training. I would be interested to know what skills or training you decided to acquire later in life (and possibly why). For example, I always wanted to know how to weld; a few years ago, I realized that a proper structural welding course required a daytime time commitment that I could not meet, but I could take an adult-education welding class (aimed at artists) in the evening. Now, I am casting about for a new challenge. For reasons that I cannot quite identify, I have always wanted to get a Commercial Driver's License (CDL). I may yet do that, but I also may look for something else. I would love to hear about other training that you undertook, and how you feel about it.
