What’s in Your Bucket, Part 2

I realized that I mentioned working on a bucket list and even mentioned some items on it, but I didn’t provide my list.  Of course, I was still working on it when I wrote the first post, but I now have 100 things, so I figured that I would post it below.  I did include a few things that I had already accomplished because they would have been on the list if I had compiled it when I turned forty (and some of them I forgot I had already accomplished).
