What is on your bucket list, what have you realized lately, and what is your dream you want to realize soon?
Not to" kick the bucket" would be nice. To stay healthy and have lots of energy and vitality. To see the grand kids do well and write a great cg piece. To see my wife get better and go dancing with her. To feel great love without being hurt and to acquire another fine painting from Goodwill thrift store or maybe an old antique cg worth thousands and only pay a hundred bucks...not asking for much!

Regards,

First of all, the marathon in Antarctica is very costly, at least $15,000 USD from the US and about €15,000 from Europe. Surprisingly, it is extremely popular despite the high cost such that one has to register one year in advance. My real problem is the Raynaud's disease where the arterial blood supply to the fingers and the toes becomes severely diminished when they are exposed to cold temperature. The hands may be warmed with chemical paks, but I do not know how to deal with the toes while running for 5 to 6 hours yet.
Sorry to hear about Raynaud's. Just wondered if you had any problems with guitar playing. There was a lady at work (now left) who had the disease and she was showing us how the fingers looked i.e. very pale due to the lack of blood flow and this was just in an office with reasonable temperature.

Thankfully the problem only manifests when the ambient temperature is below 55°F :)

There are still some big items on my bucket list that I haven't accomplished yet. I have organized and operated some small and mid-size concerts but I want to do a large flamenco concert with Rocío Márquez in Germany (in a beautiful castle). Another item is to visit Machu Picchu that I plan to see later this year (October). A more difficult item is to do an art exhibition with my own art works. I did some art studies some years ago but stopped it due to other projects. Now I want to bring this project back to life. The consequence will be that I have to limit my guitar playing and stop my internet activities, including posting in this forum after post #777.

I want to use this thread to say good-bye. This is my post #777 and my final post...at least for a long time. In the near future I will focus on some other things on my bucket list or other topics or projects I want to realize. I will be back in the future and maybe I have luck and the mods have not deleted my account yet...

In terms of posts with 777 posts you have over 64 years worth of "credit" on the one post a month rule. So long as you log on once a year, your account should stay open. Of course rules may change but that is the current state. viewtopic.php?f=30&t=90501

Good luck with the b-list.

Why?

There are so many things of interest on the forum that enrich our lives, motivate and educate us to continue playing cg, visit with people from other countries and cultures, entertain us, interact with ideas and provides an opportunity to exercise the brain cells (intellectualize) and on and on...surely, you are not basing your decision on a number. That's like saying when I'm at this age in life I'll be saying goodbye...a number none of us really knows. And statistically speaking, seven is the number most people gamble with and just happens to be the biggest losing number there is...but people still think it's a lucky number.

Have you surfed all the different threads and sub forums? I won't call you surely again, but the forum has much to offer and people have produced and maintained a great platform, with a cost and effort involved. Even if you don't post, the forum is a great resource and I think you'll miss it.

Just my opinion.

I'd like to think of something to put on a bucket list but I'm not sure that I care enough to make the effort. I was trying to become more apathetic but I lost interest.

Plenty of stuff on my bucket list.

Recently added is sing back up for Vienna Teng on stage. She typically gets audience volunteers to participate on "Soon Love Soon". I'm practicing.
