One item to shortly be crossed off my bucket list- Pebble Beach

The excessive heat in Toronto has dried out my brain, so today I will take a lighter approach to my blog, with no complicated income tax or business issues.

In my November 25, 2010 blog, titled, Sign that will, I discussed the importance of not only updating your will, but ensuring any changes to your will are finalized and signed. I followed the will discussion with a mini-blog about creating a bucket list. As my father died young, I am very cognizant about ensuring I do the things I want to do in life, before it is too late.

I noted in the above blog that amongst the items on my bucket list is to play golf at Pebble Beach in California and St. Andrews in Scotland, two of the most noted golf courses in the world. I have just booked Pebble Beach for an early fall game with my golf buddies. I am really looking forward to the challenge of playing Pebble Beach and the surrounding scenery. I will also be playing The Links at Spanish Bay, not a bad little course on its own.

I really feel strongly that everyone should create their own bucket list and try to achieve and undertake as many items as possible on their list.
