101 things I may or may not have accomplished.

This is another one of those memes.  It’s a list of 101 activities and I’m supposed to put in bold the ones that I have accomplished.

There will be real posts again on days when I’m not working until 6:00 at night and then going grocery shopping as soon as I get home.  Until then, this kind of stuff and the videos from yesterday are whatcha get!
