    Each and every day I prepare myself for the daily grind of trying to inspire, cajole, develop.. call it what you will, I do my best, some if not most of the time. But I am left time to dream.

    There are certain things which are left on my list of things to do before I die. It goes without saying that I would like my children to be happy, successful and to have installed in them the value and importance of taking care of others.

    But here is a list of things I would like to do before I die

    Here is my top 3

    1) Take the family to Disney Florida
    2) Get my Phd
    3) die debt free

    How about you things to do, stuff to buy, experiences to be had, places to visit .... before you die

    Ooooo...I like this! The bucket list. OK, my top three things are this:
    1. Live long enough to enjoy my retirement
    2. Buy a killer cruiser motorcycle
    3. Hmmm...might have to get back to you on #3. I really haven't thought of a third thing

    I probably have far too many.. (dream big)

    Top three would be:

    1) Finish my M.Ed.
    2) Save money in order to buy a property.
    3) Travel to Europe and other places I haven't been to like Japan, Philippines, etc).
    Two doesn't go well with three, but we'll see. :)

    I tried to fit into one once, never again but I can see the attraction to the classic.

    1) Get a new catamaran (something in the 40-42' range would be nice).
    2) Teach my daughter to sail it.
    3) Circumnavigate the full Pacific basin (I did the north Pacific in 91-92).
    4) Pilot a jet for a flight. The Cessna Citation II catches my eye. (I am (was) type rated for multi-IFR in prop jobs).

    1) See my Aus grandkids get married and have kids.
    2) See my Thai daughter get married and have kids.
    3) See my ashes (from above) being scattered over my fish farm.

    Got everything I need, been everywhere I have had the desire to go.

    1) Enjoy life after 60 and live by a river and own a little boat(working on it !)
    2) Own 2 very nice motorcycles, new Z900RS when it comes out and a classic late 70's Z1B
    3) Jump out of an aeroplane without a parachute into a net (a guy just did it this year from 25,000 feet so it's doable)
    4) Rob a bank with a six shooter and getaway on a horse (Butch Cassidy style)

    Well hopefully 1 and 2 will come to fruition, 3 and 4 have been a dream since I was a kid ....umm, maybe not complete them though eh.

    Good idea and why not eh!

    Think they are about 20 baht Stamp, get one tomorrow !

    1) Waking up and being 18 yrs. old with the knowledge I've got now.

    2) I never meet my first girlfriend being 16 and fall in love. Two useless abortions in Holland where I didn't even know if I was the producer would never have happened.

    3) A money transporter crashes at night on a German Autobahn right in front of me and 20 million Euros fly right into my trunk. Nothing happens to the driver, but he's unconscious for a few minutes.
    Then I'll visit all countries and nice places, excluding Disneyland. Then I gonna wait until my wife's old enough and rescue her from their rice farm in my white horse powered Lamborghini.

    I'm not asking for too much, do I?

    glib comes to mind.

    what do you want to do before you die? As per your post you have nothing to do, nothing to look forward to, nor someone to love.

    Things to do before you die
