On the matter of being a beginner !

I do not have enough time left to be anything more than a beginner in anything,
in fact I have been a beginner all my life.

I sometimes think that it would have been good to have been a Victorian, and to have been able to know a lot about nearly everything.
But that would not have been nice sometimes,
cos they had plagues and things that they couldn't do anything much about.

Oh !!!!! :( :!: :evil:

Join the club.
There is so much more fun in being a beginner, you can get away with almost anything and ask lots of what appears to some as being 'dumb' questions and find out the most amazing things.
We have quite a number of courses here in Germany that my wife can attend as learning courses and get paid for. We have a regular week long course that we go to on mineralogy (unfortunately canceled this April due to the virus) and have been attending for the last 4 years. We also had about 4, week long courses on mushrooms, looking at spores and the structure through microscopes which is how we decided to buy our own scope.
I recently bought a Dremel Multitool to work on fossils and cut and polish stones and the story goes on, never give up on curiosity.
