Adventures In Blogging — What Do We Have In Common?

Posted by infinitygoods on January 24, 2008

    Whew…You built your own PC? I need you to come over to my house.

    I’d like to know about #150.

    Yup! Not just assembled my own plug and play components, but back in the days of early PCs I even put together motherboards.

    I saved my cousin’s life when we were kids. He had fallen in a bomb hole in Normandy which had filled up with water and he was drowning. I brought him back to the surface and yelled for help. When some kids came to us we all tried to pull him out but couldn’t so as the fastest runner I was elected to run for adult help. It took a man and all of us kids pulling to get him out. We were pulling lying down flat on our bellies so we wouldn’t fall in too as the ground all around the hole was soft like quick sand. Thank God, my cousin is alive and well today.

    That’s quite a list you have! I have not done a lot of what you have done, but I have gone parasailing three times. And, I will go as many more as I am able. So cool! Thanks for stopping by the blog earlier.
    Shalom, Kim
