"Take A Chance Day": April 23

The American writer William James wrote: “To change ones life: Start immediately. Do it flamboyantly.”

Today is St. George’s Day in the UK (he of the dragon slaying), and “Take A Chance Day” if one trolls the web for random holidays. Now that the long winter is over and we’re all thawing out and re-engaging with the world: it’s a time for brave new ventures. What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Slay a dragon? Be a dragon? Ask a dragon to lunch?

Today’s mitzvah:
Take a chance!

I must be a troll(er)!
Did you know that yesterday was the anniversary of the 1889 Oklahoma Land Rush???

I'd ask a dragon to lunch you just don't see dragons having lunch as much as you should.

You guys crack me up. Maybe all the dragons are missing lunch while panning for gold! :-)
