Wow. That's a good life list. I'll have to add several of those to my own. You've done several that I hope to do in coming years!

Wait... you've never been to the top of the Eiffel Tower? Am I reading this thing right?

That is correct. I know, I've been to Paris, what, four times? The first time I didn't have the $$, and on subsequent visits we were concentrating on other things. Same kind of deal as with the Statue of Liberty (in spite of living in NYC for five years), London changing of the guard, visiting the White House and swimming in the Great Salt Lake. Sometimes proximity and opportunity are not quite enough to get there.

But I've of course done other, not listed, things that were even more exciting, right?

Hey, Rophone lived in Arizona for how long? No Grand Canyon visit yet for him.

So, is this list something that you made up and are trying to finish, or something that someone sent to you, and you have to highlight those things you've done? If it's a list you made up yourself, I'll have to say that the adopting a child thing surprises me-- unless you mean the dollar-a-day type of adoption. ; )

It seems to be something that's floating around the blogosphere; I didn't make it up.

Oh, I get it. It's something you catch-- like a virus. Not something you're tagged with.

Excellent answers, JA! I like how you added a #100.

Happy New Year to you and everyone at Chez Salad.

?? I didn't add anything, just cut and pasted from an acquaintance's blog (which very neatly wiped out his boldings).
