Shannon's 101 in 1001

I found this idea on this site, and the original idea and links to many lists is here.

Well here we are! I have been working on this list for the past few weeks ever since I heard about this idea of setting 101 goals to accomplish in 1001 days.

I must confess...I am a regular here on Planet Shannon, quietly lurking about, checking out the terrain. I LOVE your list (and your planet). Jamie really put it well. I can't wait to make my own list...And, whenever you are ready to scratch 39 off that list, I'.m sure we'll have plenty for you to "learn" here at 110 Hiawatha.:)Though I am also game to join you at the museum, the spa, a new restaurant, and definatley to go around winking and smiling.
