  1. I want to do them all...besides maybe bouncing checks!

  2. Cool! I realize that I'd done all the ones in Europe, but none in the U.S. (Times Square, Grand Canyon, Lincoln Memorial, etc.)

    So, about that skinny dipping...????

  3. I want to know more about 5 (the UFO) and 75 (How you got fired)

    You lived in Salt Lake for how many years and you never swam in the Great Salt Lake??? I am ashamed to say I know you.
