I've done 16 of the 50, and one of your suggestions.

My suggestions:
Have volunteered your time for the local community.
Learn to play a musical instrument.

I looked through the list too see how sad and pathetic my life has been and discovered I have managed 14 of the master list as follows: 8, 9, 18 (well I tried but they failed to grow!), 21 (regular daily occurrence at the moment, great joy!), 23, 26, 32, 35, 40, 41, 43 (try most weeks), 47, 48 (on the machine I am using at this very moment whooo!), 50. As for you ticking 7 & 37 I make no comment! The additions I’ve been on TV, I’ve written songs, I asked Colin but got arrested! I have also had my own show on local charity radio and seen the Victoria falls (which are vastly superior and all natural!) and been in a few bands. Things I would like to do, drive a rally car, be in more bands, have a really nice kitchen and time to cook. I’m sure there are more but that will do for now.
