I started my first 101 Things in 1001 Days list on 9/1/07 and actually finished a lot of it (although my list consisted of 55 things). Still, I got stuff done. That’s the point!

Today, I start a new/updated list. And I am posting it here with the intention of keeping it more in view of not only my eyes, but the eyes of the one or two readers I have. ;-0   So, I am holding myself accountable.

I will update weekly.
