Birthday Bucket List

Each year before my birthday I come up with a list of things to do before my next birthday.  The number of things I put on the list is the same as my age.  I have been doing it for several years now and I really like it.  Periodically throughout the year I come back to this page and update the list.  I add links to posts that are about that particular item on the list.  You can follow my progress by coming back and checking out the list every so often.  Red means I have not yet done it, and black text are things I have done!
