    After watching the movie "Bucket List" I thought it would be interesting to create our own and scratch them as we do each one.
    For those who have not watched the movie:
    The Bucket List

    Corporate billionaire Edward Cole and working class mechanic Carter Chambers are worlds apart. At a crossroads in their lives, they share a hospital room and discover they have two things in common: a desire to spend the time they have left doing everything they ever wanted to do before they "kick the bucket" and an unrealized need to come to terms with who they are. Together they embark on the road trip of a lifetime, becoming friends along the way and learning to live life to the fullest. Each adventure adds another check to their list, all done with

    So what's on your list of top ten things to do before you bite the dust, fall off your perch, give up the ghost, pop your clogs, or you guessed it, "kick the bucket"?
    Have fun with this and maybe someone will realize from another something they would like to do..

    I'll settle for;

    1. Restore a Constituitonal government.

    2. Live long enough to see my Grandchildren.

    Somehow I doubt I'll live through the first but I'm sure as hell gonna try.
