I wonder what to get Rosie for Christmas?

AMAZING original movie poster art by Matt Owen.  I am totally in LUST with his work.

Numero Uno on my bucketlist

As I slide down the other side of the hill (and let’s face it – at 52 I’m only middle-aged if I live to 104), I have begun to think that if I’m going to have a bucketlist, it’s time I start drawing it up.

Hey – I’m no more happy about it than you are.  All you have to do is ignore it.  I have to keep the f*c*ing thing up!

Along those lines, I have created my first poll.  There is a trick in the post, so be careful how you answer.  Anyone who gets the trick wins a valuable parting gift (just like the one my dentist gives me).
