Okay, that is enough of that. I will finish this list another day. This was not that easy to compile but was quick enough once I got going. Thanks for reading.


  1. I love the fact you want to learn the violin.

    I used to love to donate blood (so weird, I know), but can't anymore because I have since learned about my bleeding disorder and because of my diabetes.

    Some other things I will have to learn about and other things I know very well.

  2. Re your frequent headaches, have you asked a dentist about a bite plate? That made such a difference in my life! I had frequent headaches for years due to stress - I clenched my teeth. I got a bite plate and ---no more headaches!

    Hope it works for you
