Wow, what a neat list. One thing that jumped out at me was reading the entire bible. I had read the NT many times and lots of the OT, but I started two years ago reading the One Year Bible and it really works. It's only about 15-20 minutes a day and then I also can study and read my regular bible. I'm older than you and up until 2 years ago I had wanted to read the whole bible, but this really helps. It's broken up with OT, NT, Psalms, Proverbs. Can you tell that I think it's a great thing? Don't worry you will never see me bungee jumping unless I have lost my mind. Go cha cha. It's a neat list. I love your posts.

I have done different studies of the bible - many of those but I've never gone from first page to last page yet. I LOVE your idea! Thank you so much for sharing them with me! Me and my sword!

Ay, caramba! Well, here's to living and those who cha cha in it! :))
Quite all right about the award's origins. Was curious, so thank you for your response. *laughing* One my of my bloggy friends thinks it's not even Italian but Portugese! Now that I'm definitely curious about!
Have a wonderful day!

Gosh, I've done several of those already and then some (I'm not elaborating ... tee hee)! Guess I'm not as boring as I thought I was. Thanks for sharing. ♥ ∞

Cha Cha - I knew you would have to bold karaoke. Somehow that one just jumped out at me. Thanks for putting it all out there for us! Looking forward to Monday! I've been warning folks to put away the good china and hide their valuables. See you on the tour. Lavinia will be there for sure, so things are going to be happenin'.
