A wish list for everyone

From time to time friends, family or co-workers have asked me what would I like for a present. Usually it will coincide with Christmas, my birthday, or some other special event, but it always comes with the general expression that they have no idea what to get me. This is not all that uncommon, many times I am also stuck wondering what to get friends, family members or a loved one. If you are like me, you want to get something that a person needs, wants or would like.

So to help answer the questions and to help organize things a bit, I thought it would be a reasonable idea to post a “wish list” of things I have at one time or another wanted, needed or desired. This is by no means a request for these particular items, or a request for gifts in general. It is purely provided as an information resource for those who are curious about the kinds of things I like or are interested in. Again, this is just a general idea.. not an exhaustive list of things.
