You're welcome, Wasabi. Crossing my fingers & toes for you. Let us know if you win, so we can look for you on TV. (Guessing Mahalo means Thank you. Wow my first new Hawaiian word. I'll see if I can look up the pronunciation. Thank you.)

And I hope you continue making the wonderful difference that you do!!


I've always wanted to be a Philanthropist (sp?) but I don't have enough money. Wanted to be Santa's assistant but the job was taken. But I DO think that I may just be Pollyanna's clone (No - can't be - I'm not a blonde) or long lost twin!!!! But really, I have always wanted to:

A) Write a book (actually working on one)
2) Be a Mom (Accomplished! And get to work on it Daily! )
3) Record an album (Hmmmmm.....)
4) Build my sustainable home and gardens
5) Make sure that EVERYONE I talk to feels that they are valued, loved and important.
6) Learn how to play the Congos
7) Portage at least four lakes in as many weeks
8) Work with, encourage and make a difference for children, not just in Third World Countries, but Where Ever they need the support.
9) Become a better person
10)how to do stained glass, quilt, and (really!) build a windmill!

Every day is such a gift and what you do with it is your git=ft back!

Mish..just sound it out like it is spelled..Yes it does mean thank you.

I would like to go for a Baloon ride..You can't get me to climb a ladder though..I will fly in a plane rather than ride in a car for a long trip. een there, done that..too many times. We have een in all ut 6 states in our travels. The most upper North East of the USA. Would love to see New England in the Fall. Have touched down in Alaska, Japan on the way to Korea and we did go to Vancover C. AND lets not forget the beautiful Island of Ohau, Hawaii. My only regret was I did not know Wasabi then.

Hey, cyber, it looks to me like you already have the perfect mouse trap. Last year I walked in on my 11-year-old, thinks she's a puppy, JR terrier, and she growled at me. Huh? I started to punish her (bad dog, bad dog. Not much punishment here), and noticed that she was guarding something. It was a mouse the size of my thumb. She was SO proud of herself. I personally think she tried to make friends with it, and it looked up at her and had a heart attack. When I lived in the south and in Hawaii, I'd seen many cockroaches larger than that mouse. But give me a housepet that will hunt any day over setting traps and disposing of the trapped bodies.

I highly recommend Maine in the summer (specifically old orchard beach ) where there is 7 miles of sandy beaches to lay out and get a tan, or walk along the piers, party, shop, arcardes, etc. In the fall you can take a train ride to see foliage in various parts of Maine depending on the time of year.

I am not a scrooge....in fact Christmas used to be my favorite holiday....and I loved buying presents or everyone! But...if I could change anything now...it would be to break this tradition of presents....and get back to just "getting together to eat...and talk". I've seen so much stress over "what to get someone"..."how long will it take to pay for xmas this year"....and all those who can't afford to do Christmas....that it breaks my heart. However....I'm sure I won't see this in my lifetime...as I can't get my own family to give it up...let alone everyone else.

Keep realism in your answers ... things that you are actually likely to do.
I like this topic Claire! I've always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon as well, but the height is a little scary! But hey a bottle of champagne and some sun would be nice as long as the wind is not a challenge. I would want a parachute with me though

I guess the only other thing I would want to try is diving out of an airplane with a partner. It would take alot of nerve for me to do that though.
