    Biography: I can see my photography skills improving dramatically. The community here at DPC is great. Thanks everyone for the comments and for helping me improve.

    I've set a list of goals for myself that I'm going to track as I enter challenges.

    Score goals:
    Break 5.5 in a challenge - DONE - my 4th challenge - Bored
    Break 6.0 in a challenge - DONE - my 17th challenge - Decisions
    Break 6.5 in a challenge - DONE - my best of 2005 entry came in at 6.492, but I finally got over 6.5 in the Sports challenge. yea!!
    Break 7.0 in a challenge - WOO HOO - finally did it - in my 82nd challenge (and my first ribbon). WOO HOO again... I can't stop saying it .
    Break 7.5 in a challenge - Not yet - and not too likely, but I'm hoping...

    Get my average over 5.5 - DONE - finally ....
    get my average to 5.75 - Not yet
    Get over 6 - here's hoping

    Top Finish Goals:
    In top 50% - Done - my 4th challenge - Bored
    In top 50 overall - Done - my 4th challenge - Bored
    In top 25% - Done - my 4th challenge - Bored
    In top 25 overall - Done - my 17th challenge - Decisions
    In top 10% - Done - my 17th challenge - Decisions
    In top 10 overall - Done - my 17th challenge - Decisions - now to just keep doing it....
    In top 5% - Done - my 17th challenge - Decisions
    In top 5 overall - Not yet - but hoping. (not counting ribbons Woo Hoo)

    Win a 3rd place - WOO HOO - finally did it. I broke the ribbon curse in my 82nd challenge. It's taken a very long time, and I was in a 4.5 - 5.5 rut for quite a while. I now have to work extra hard to try and make this into a wonderful trend.
    Win a 2nd place - nope
    Win a 1st place - might happen... Maybe.

    But - I've got some people selecting my shots as a favorite - thats always nice

    AND NOW: I'm in the DPC Olympics, on Team Canada II. GO CANADA
