Now let's talk falling...


Yep, that kind...


   



The first modern Bungee Jumps occurred on April 1, 1979 in Bristol. 
The craze has grown and people now jump from buildings, bridges, cranes, helicopters, and hot-air balloons. Basically anything they can attach a giant rubber band to.







Parachute comes from the French word para which means "to protect against" and the French word chute, meaning "fall". So put it together and it quite literally means "to protect against a fall".  




Cliff jumping is a favorite past-time for some. The adrenaline rush of standing on the edge of a cliff and looking down into the water that will soon swallow their body must be amazing. 

I say "must be" because you couldn't get me to the edge of the cliff, let alone off it! 




Yeah, go ahead, call me chicken. Your taunting still won't get me to take that kind of leap. The closest I ever came to being an adrenaline junky was on a trip to Las Vegas in the mid 90's when my husband talked me into doing the ride at the top of the Stratosphere. 

The drop of my stomach as we shot to the stars was really cool. The free fall back down, not so much. No, I didn't puke. And no, I haven't done anything like that since. 







Las Vegas is the home of the Rockets. 
Meet Grayson Pierce, their star player in  
He has his work cut out for him 
as he tries to win 
Sportscaster, Jane Alexander's trust, 
her heart, and a World Series Title.








I am Morgan Kearns; former journalist, current author, and mother of four young children--just to keep things interesting.

  5. I've been a blog follower for a while...I just "liked" your FB fan page...I've been a Goodreads fan for a while too!

    I'm not a daredevil either. I'm afraid of water so there won't be any cliff diving in my future and I don't like planes so there won't be any parachuting. Bungee jumping is insane.
    Just give me a glass of ice cold Pepsi and a good book and I'm all set.

  13. I am not one to be found jumping out of planes, bungee jumping, or any other such tom-foolery. I like my feet planted firmly on the ground and my nose stuck in a good book. Thank you for the opportunity to win one of your books.

    Happy Reading, Writing & Blogging,

    I agree with Laurielu, I'm staying right here on the ground, preferably in a comfortable seat with my nose buried inside a good book or ereader. <^_^>

  25. I am with you , NO WAY are they getting me close to a cliff , much less would I jump off and I rode to the top of the empire State building once and that was enough for me. I do not do roller coasters or bungee jump........I will keep my feet on good old Terra firma the more the firma the less the terror. Nice to meet u and will definitely follow you.Hope I win something but even if I do not, I love meeting new people. Thanks for the give away but thank you for sharing some of yourself with us.

  26. I consider myself a person that likes to try new things but if it means jumping of a cliff just for the thrill of it? NO WAY!

    I might bungee jump, if I'm with someone who knows what they're doing!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I liked you on facebook, I'm a new dollower and I became a fan on goodreads!
