Bucket list

This is my “bucket list” of things I want to do before I go to the bit-bucket in the sky. In no particular order:

Hold elective office
Scuba dive the Caribbean
Perform in a musical
Sail to the Marquesas
Visit Montreal
Visit Prague
Visit Patagonia
Visit Cairo
Get my pilot’s license
Travel through the Panama Canal
Become a grandfather (but not until 2025 at the earliest!)
Sing the national anthem at a sporting event
Visit Capetown
Visit Timbuktu
Make a living using my voice.
Go to clown school.

  1. Hello Mark,
    funny how I was directed to your page, with no intention of asking anything with regards to IT. I did however, come across your page as I was preparing my works sited page, for a Digital Imaging assignment. I had the pleasure of interviewing Heather Evans Smith (local), which led me to create my power point presentation, which then lead me to your photograph. I used a photograph titled, Main Campus of William Peace University in Raleigh, North Carolina. You kindly asked we notify you when we do. So here I am – and I certainly appreciate you sharing your talent with everyone.

    I was happily surprised to read in your bio that you hardly have any IT experience. 🙂 I am interested in an app project and was wondering if you could possibly mentor, collaborate or direct me in the best direction with regards to software engineering. I can be reached at brandy.gonzalez@my.tccd.edu.

    Oh, and I can try to help with an item on your bucket list. My dad works for homeland security and he was stationed in the Bahamas for some years. Possibility we can make that your scuba diving request happen, and at Blue Lagoon.

    Enjoyed your humor and look forward to hearing from you soon.

  2. Re Raleigh Speedway. Do you if Bill France drive pace car in mid 1950’s, a Chrysler 300? Trying to verify a memory.

  3. I knew Marty at Facsfac San Diego. I was there when he passed away. I was very sad following his death. He was a softspoken and great guy. I was on the John Young from 1990 to 1995.

  4. Hi Bruce. Thanks for checking in. Do you know the cause of Marty’s death by any chance? I’ve heard rumors but nothing definitive. – MT
