Cherie: Daredevil Darling Of The Skies

By Ladymaggic, published on Apr 6, 2008

Cherie Carter is a dare-devil of the skies. She has always loved speed and danger, and when she discovered Sky-diving, her life revolved around the sport.

Last year she jumped her 600th jump and she had just turned 60 years old, or is it 60 years young? Cherie will never grow old…she just does not have the time.

Every possible weekend finds Cherie heading for the Dive Zone carting her equipment in a matching bag.

Intrigued, I asked Cherie some questions.

Why does a cute little lady like you want to throw herself out of a plane?

The Invasive Cell Phone

By Ladymaggic, published on Mar 7, 2008

The first portable phones were the size of a small suitcase. Today, a mobile can be held in a closed fist, or even located in a tooth. The price has come to a level that almost everyone can afford, and everywhere you go, addicted individuals have mobiles attached to their ears, or are doubled over texting messages to other addicts.

The phone has the power to take precedence over real people. Watch how everyone responds to the ringing of a phone, and watch the same people respond to a call from the people around them. A house can be on fire, and you will see people texting... (more)

By Ladymaggic, published on Jan 8, 2008

Unusual Foods, or Food that is Different to a Caucasian Westerner What is the strangest food you have eaten or seen served, or read about? Travelling and living and working in different countries and cultures has often led me into sitting staring at something served on a plate in front of me that I either just do not wish to eat, or the odour of which, to me, is absolutely appalling.

Recently, in Korea, I was taken to lunch by a very attractive Korean girl, who took me to a Restaurant and... (more)
