Mine? There's a few things really such as.

Swimming with Dolphins
Visiting Disney Land in either France or Florida
Meeting "Fawlty Towers" and "Monty Python" Legend John Cleese
Getting a job creating Xbox games
Attending International Comic Cons such as New York or San Diego
Meeting Rock Legend Meat Loaf

Those are just a sample of stuff I want to do before they take me to a Funeral Home and don't bring me back.

How about you guys?

    Great question and some awesome things on yours!

    For me, hhmm....

    Go to all of the UK's biggest rock festivals
    Visit California
    Spend time over Christmas at the German markets in Germany with my partner, because I've been and she hasn't, I promised I'd take her.
    See my favourite band play at a stadium and the main stage of a festival
    Own a decent house

    There's probably more, but I can't think of them in the middle of a Sunday :D

    Not really much on my list I’m just happy being here and trying to make the most of what I can do

    However I’d like to have a big engined thirsty car before they are either outlawed or priced off the roads

    I’d also like to travel to lots of different countries

    Finally I would quite like to try caviar to see if it is worth all the fuss

    Here's another one on my list.

    Visit the Coronation St Studio tour in Salford, Manchester, and by the same token, visit the Emmerdale Studio in Leeds.

    Meet and have a drink with wrestling Legend "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, although in character he'd literally drink me under the table lol.

    Meet wrestling commentator Jim "JR" Ross, I used to have a ton of respect for him, he has CP and still works, but after WWE fired him a few years ago, he said he'd never call a live weekly wrestling show again, now he does commentary for All Elite Wrestling every Wednesday night on TNT in the US.

    There's nothing on my list. Just for my suffering to end soon.
