I'm excited to try to see if I can do more of the things on this list. I'd especially love to see the Mediterranian, the Great Wall of China, and dolphins/elephants are both neat. Knowing Steve, we will also one day own a boat and see the Northern Lights too.

I tag Dagny, Valerie, and Mike/Catherine; unless they don't want to do it, in which case, they are exempt without any hurt feelings.

I must say I'm suprised you haven't been to Hawaii (definitely put that high on the priority list) and that you never wrote a letter to Santa (even during Primary or Elementary School activities?).
