Wow! That's some list!!! So, is your goal to hit so many of these a day?? ;)

Oh, I have one (don't think it's on there) - the racetrack (we have race horses! :))

I like this kind of list because I make most of my contacts in person when I can.
Add Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.

ok, kind of similar to what you already have (your list was so thorough!)
wear a Help Whip Cancer pin on yourself or purse all year round (small, but people do notice)
I go to a lot of yard sales with my Dad and try to remember to wear PC logo wear to them, also, if you have you're own yard sale make sure to wear pc or have old catty's out.
I know it's been mentioned on the site before but didn't see it on your list, include a biz card with any local (or for that matter non local if you have a website) bills you mail.
