    Turning 60 doesn’t seem as bad as turning 30 does it . . . so much to be thankful for. I bet you could come up with a list of 59! Next time you are here, we can go to Max Brenner’s chocolate restaraunt in Tel Aviv port. I didn’t know you were such a chocolate fan that you would list it twice.

    I agree with David…30 was traumatic! You can be my plumline for 60…I’ll observe you and learn how to handle it over the next six years, ok? Then I’ll be totally ready 🙂

    Hey, what happened to wine on this list?
