Things To Do Before I Turn 50

  (also known as my "TA-DA" list as opposed to a "to do" list) It was my 49th birthday a few days ago and this got me thinking. Any birthday that ends with a zero always feels a bit like milestone or a landmark and, when I hit the big "five-o" in 2022, I don't want huge parties or celebrations but I would like to have ticked a few things off my low-effort bucket list.   I see these things as a way to improve my mental and physical health, plus a few slightly off-the-wall experiences that would make for great memories.  Start running again and include the following: Lead a C25K group again  Participate in parkrun EVERY week where possible  < ongoing (now parkrun Run Director too) Visit local landmarks whilst running  Train for a long race - building up from 5k > 10k > 10 miles > half marathon, with a couple of longer trail races mixed in  Lose a lot bit of weight Post more on Instagram or give the blog a bit of a reboot < ongoing Look at

If you met Kevin Bacon would you ask him...

Kevin Bacon
  1. Hey Kev, when's Footloose 2 coming out?
  2. Hey Kev, what's in the shed?
  3. Something else?

Ever the comedians, here is what my Social Media Massive had to say.

Hey Kev, how much did EE pay you?
Hey Kev, do you like bacon?
Hey Kev, can you still do the Footloose dance?
Hey Kev, can I touch you? (slightly worried about this one)
Hey Kev, how old are you?
Hey Kev, was it really not a good day to die?
Hey Kev, does it hurt your soul when they make you quote TOWIE?
Hey Kev, why have you not starred in any Tremors sequels?
Hey Kev, red sauce, brown sauce or no sauce at all?
Hey Kev, what happened to your career?
Hey Kev, has anyone ever made a sculpture of you out of bacon?
Hey Kev, what do you want to say to Bernie Madoff?
Hey Kev, was it good being invisible?
Hey Kev, how many good men does it take to make 'a few'?
Hey Kev, why was your wife's series taken off the air and why is it now called a different name?

And here's my question:

Hey Kev, what do you think our Bacon number is?

Will someone from my people get in touch with his people and sort it out?  Maybe they could say "Hey Kev, will you answer the questions?"...  Wouldn't it be awesome if he did?

Thanks to Kelly, Vinny, Lisa, Jodie, K-Shizzle, Bob, Louise, Neil, Simon, Ian, Sarah, Clare, Martin and anyone else I forgot to mention.
