  1. Hi Paula,
    Quite enjoyed reading your list of trivia. I find you have an inviting quality to your writing.
    Just for the record, i did not try to replicate any activities mentioned in 1, 8, 11, 14 or 16. That would be silly.
    However, when in the loft recently, by a set of coincidental circumstances, I discovered when smooshed in a stairwell between an onion eating bovine and a turtle with gum on his bum , that i can hum while touching my tongue to my chin / elbow.
    Thanks again for the fun reading.
    Smiles, Deb

    • Deb:
      I admire your courage when testing out the trivia. It is amazing what we can accomplish when a ‘set of coincidental circumstances’ presents itself!
      What marvels we can perform with our tongue! Keep reading and commenting! Chuckles, Paula.

    • Deb: Just to keep you busy, I’m putting up more trivia and looking for the most challenging kind. LOL
