    People in the sky in diamond formation


    By Kathleen Atkins

    If you plan to remember an event by living through it, jumping out of an airplane isn't something you do on impulse. In the fall of 2012, 100 experienced skydivers from 21 countries briefly floated in formation over Perris, California and by doing so, they set a 100-way, wingsuit world record.

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    America, eh? Meanwhile people are being blown to pieces in Syria, having their heads cut off in Africa, etc, etc.

    Oh, what's the point? Have fun, eh?

    We all should balance serious concerns with good old fashioned fun once in awhile!

    Sorry, Flutefriend, we follow American (U.S.) spelling conventions at Windows Secrets. We make do with "practice" for both noun and verb.
    Best, Kathleen
