Bucket List

This is something I have wanted to do for a long time.  Several years ago I put a bucket list together privately, and was surprised when I recently looked at it, how many items I had accomplished.  So I have been spending some time updating my list.  I am posting it here, with a bit of trepidation at how some people I know will react, but I have learned a lot about myself from making this list, and I have decided I no longer want to hide these things from the world or myself.  So if you find yourself offended by this list, you are of course entitled to your opinion, but I do not wish to hear it.

This list is still a work in progress, as I am trying to list 100 items.
