700 Club

I deleted some posts that I decided were a bit more personal than I wanted to get, so this is post 700, the 2nd time. There's a tradition that many bloggers participate in that at post 100 they post 100 things about me. I tried this, but didn't get to 100.

Tonight I ran across this version of the same thing and it seemed like fun. You just put the things you've done in bold (starred with this set-up as bold doesn't show) and those you haven't stay normal. So, here goes:
