Wow, you're very ambitious! We didn't make a list, but still, I doubt we've done that much in 17 years ... ;-)

WOW! All we want is to get our coffee cafe open. It's been a nightmare experience. I'll have to blog about it when I reach a better frame of mind to do so.

We made a partial "bucket list" ourselves. But getting this cafe built and running ($$$$) is A-1 priority over everything.

Hope to someday have a list like you. Wish I had feet that functioned as good as yours to get me back on track with exercise.

Keep up the good work.
