Default The Gut Bucket List

I subscribe to Jazz Times Magazine...this month's edition had a list of 40 jazz experiences one should have before they leave this earth...so far I have accomplished 9 (I had a late start, I did not really get into jazz until much later in life), but I am now determine to make a serious dent in the list over the next 3 years

since our common fervor is cruising, can you name one thing you want to accomplish in that arena before your health will not allow you to cruise anymore ? also, can you share at least one of your non cruising passions and what you would like to check off in the next 3 years

in terms of cruising, I want to cruise down the Nile in Egypt..in terms of jazz, I want to have a private jazz concert at my home for 100 of my closet friends (you are all invited) featuring Anita Baker to raise $$$ to sponsor a scholarship so one talented high school jazz musician from the Lower 9th ward in New Orleans who lost everything in Hurricane Katrina could attend the summer jazz camp in Litchfield CT (where I grew up)..since she is unattached now, Halle Berry, will be my co-host for the private concert

Cruising would be either to Italy or Tahiti .Non cruising would be to visit every US state .We've already been to every Canadian province .

Donna, we have cruised to Hawaii for our fifth weding anniversary and we did a land vacation to Hawaii for our tenth.
We enjoyed them both, but the land vacation was better because we had much more time to enjoy that beautiful state.

We stayed in a hotel in Honolulu where they have a ceremony where you can renew your vows Hawaiian style. It was very well done and we can't wait to visit Hawaii again.

Default The Gut Bucket List

As for cruising, I still would like to cruise from Valpariso, go around the Horn and wind up in Rio. That's a 16-day cruise. I also dream about a cruise that includes Venice, Dubrovnik, and Monte Carlo. I have been told that Monte Carlo is nothing, but I gotta see that for myself!

Non-cruising? I fantasize about winning the CA lottery and renovating my house.

Donna, too bad you can't go on the Let's Get Lei'd cruise. As much as I'd like to see everyone going on that cruise, Hawaii is much better as a land trip.

For me cruise - some type of long Med cruise. Otherwise like Judy would love to win the lottery, I would be able to help daughter buy a nice house, pay off our's and be able to redo kitchen and bathrooms and of course then I would be able to take some nice trips and not all cruises. There are a few islands in the Caribbean I would love to go and spend at least a week at. I would hope that I would also get enough from the lottery to be able to donate to some medical research groups.

Nancy, you are absolutely right. If I won the CA lottery, Some of that money would go to the many ligitimate charities that deserve help. There are many, and I just can't afford to support them. Right now, I give to the American Diabetes Assn., occasionally the American Cancer Society. Wish I could do more.
