40 Things To Do Before 40
0

9 posts in this topic

What would you add to a list of 40 things to do before 40, things that you've never done before?

 

Mine are:

 

Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Swim with sharks in a shark cage

Swim with the crocodiles in a glass tank

Drive around the A1

Swim with dolphins

Go whale watching along the Great Ocean Road

Scuba dive out to the Great Barrier Reef

Get my boat licence

Read the Lord Of The Rings books and watch the movies, and Hobbit too

Attend a Full Moon Party on the Island

Camp at Uluru

Do the Kokoda Trail

Complete a triathlon on my own, not as part of a team, not to win but to do it

 

 

That's all I have at the moment, I haven't done those things before and would like to.  Looking for some more inspiration

This isn't a before I'm 40, but eventually. I want to spend a week at Giraffe Manor. That is pretty much everything big I want to do with my life.

 

Little things though. I've never been to an aquarium or a planetarium, even though we have both up in the city. I'd like to go to ponycon. :ph34r: I'd like to pet more giraffes. :D

I just have a few months left before 40 so I would have to think longer term...

 

Travel with my family - We've never flown anywhere before but times are good so we are taking the kids to Disneyland this fall.  :) I would love to see hawaii, Costa Rica (again), go on a European cruise, visit eastern Canada in the fall, and go back to Vancouver island a few more times.

 

Run half marathon distances again.

 

Do more hiking in the mountains.

 

I can't think of many things that I'd like to do... I'm not a thrill seeker, and I don't enjoy speed, so helicoptor rides, fast cars and boats, and thrill inducing endevors like bungee jumping have absolutely zero appeal for me.

 

There are a bunch of things I'd like to see my kids accomplish but that stuff isn't really up to me.  LOL

Well, I am almost 20 years past 40, so I don't know if it counts, but I would like to learn clawhammer banjo. (I play Scruggs style now.) I'd like to get better on harp. I'd like to take voice lessons. I WILL get my original songs copyrighted soon and then start pushing them. (I would love it if Chris McNulty recorded one of my songs - if you have never heard her, pop over to Youtube and give a listen.) I also want to record a Christmas C D and give copies to all my friends.

Some years these can be really neat. About 10 years ago they were so bright that I would sit outside in our hotub, in January, and see them clearly in spite of the fact that I was 5km from downtown Calgary. I remember being able to read from them, and from that pinkish glow that you get from city lights reflecting on snow. Very neat.  :)

I'm a little over 20 years past 40, bartful. I would love one of your Christmas CDs. I guess my list would be closer to a bucket list, but I'm hoping the bucket doesn't appear until 30 more years, doggone it!!

 

Some of the things I'm doing already, like spending time with my granddaughter by going to the Little League Softball World Series and showing my illustrations in coffee shops.

 

I'd like to go to Alaska during summer to see the land of the midnight sun, spend time in San Francisco, and visit New York City. I'd also like to go out on a sailboat and travel the world. I remember seeing an article in National Geographic many years ago about a 17 year old who sailed around the world by himself. All the pictures in the magazine made me want to do something like that - see the world on a boat, but be self-sufficient the whole time.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
