  1. A great list! I’m honored to be included. Thanks!

  2. Wow! This is a great list to be included in to kick off 2010! Lots of interesting posts to read.

  3. I did not see the list;nor I wish to see it. Instead stressing the mind with the long list of “to do “: I prefer to do, be it a little a day. In my experience,nothing can be achieved without doing.
    So let us begin 2010 with a little doing for peace ,happiness and harmony.
    I have learned and experienced the modest beginning one day touches the highest peak.
