    Everyone has a bucket list, and right after not loosing my houe (which I physically built 12 yrs*/- ago on my own) because I have been out of work since my birthday 6/24/2009, is going to one of Mr. Clapton’s Crossroads concerts. My dream come true!
    If I find myself in the place where I have to sell or be foreclosed on, I hope I will have enough $$ to make it in 2011. Hopefully it won’t come to that. If it does, I might as well go out with a bang, right?
    Does anyone know where and when it is to take place??
