Revisiting the list

Remember The List of 40 that I posted back on July 21, 2009?  You know the one where I listed 40 things that I wanted to complete by the time my 41st birthday rolled around.  Yeah, the one here.  

Oh you forgot…do worry I forgot about  it too.  Well I can’t say that I forgot, it’s just that I didn’t look at it again after writing it.  But then again that is the same thing as forgetting about it isn’t it?  After revisiting the list and seeing all of the things that I haven’t yet completed…I decided to take some time and make a few revisions.   Here is the new list…
