101 in 1001

Image from here
In 2011 I took a leaf out of Kelly's book and set myself something new to do each week. At the end of the 52in52 challenge, I had done most of the things on my list, but not all. I have been wondering what to do about my list and what the next step might be. I decided to change it to a 101 in 1001 challenge on August 15, 2012. I have bought myself about a year (1001 days from January 1, 2011 is September 1, 2013) , but added 49 more things to the list. So here goes...
