So last year, for my birthday, I wrote a list of things to do in the year–not a true Bucket List but simply a list of things to do before I turned 49. We’re now a bit beyond the next birthday–I’ve been busy so this is late–but it’s time to look back and see how I went: Continue reading 49th Year Bucket List: Reviewed
Every week in 2018, the plan is that my friend Rod is going to ask me some geeky question that will answer in a post. This week is Week #25, and for the sixth week in a row, we’re talking about superheroes, though with a different slant this time.
How would you do an Escape Room with a superhero theme?
So, point of clarification: I’m 48 years old currently, having just celebrated my birthday yesterday. I’m not 49, but that this year is actually my 49th year of living. When I celebrate my 49th birthday, that means I’m completing my 49th year, not starting it.
And I know, it’s not really a “bucket list” if the deadline isn’t the end of your life…when you “kick the bucket”. Indeed, maybe it’d be better to call this a “49th Year To-Do List”. But that’s catchy sounding, don’t you think?

Today is my birthday! And more than that, it’s my 47th birthday. What does that mean? Well, it means I’m getting on a bit, I guess. And it means it’s only three years to 50. It means I’m closer to 80 than I am to when I was born. Goodness.
But as regular readers know, 47 is my favorite number. Even if I don’t think it’s really all that important, I’ve decided to celebrate it a bit, and one of the small ways is to write this post. Looking at the last year–June 7, 2016 until today–what have been some of the great things? Some of the things I’ve really enjoyed or appreciated or been grateful for? Continue reading 47 Great Things About this Past Year
Warning: This post starts off pretty geeky, but ends up kind of religious. If that appeals to you, then by all means, read on.
I love Christmas and I get excited about giving and receiving gifts. At the same time, I often feel let down after the whole experience. Continue reading Christmas Gift Highlights, and What Really Matters
