Your Greatest Life Accomplishment

Plus all the links and extra bits from Holly & Dan for Wednesday August 9.

Our hero of the day was this Dad who crawled to the edge of a cliff to face his fear of heights!

Today's Twitterfeed featured this pearl of wisdom from Michael Gungor

Today's Bible Society Verse of the Day is Proverbs 4:12: 'When you walk, your steps will not be impeded; and if you run, you will not stumble.'

We asked for your biggest accompishment in life so far, and wow!! What an amazing audience we have - here's a few of our favourite messages:
Brenda: We survived immigration ! We are now applying for citizenship. It has taken 8 years to achieve this. So thankful.
Amanda: I set up a charitable trust in Ethiopia and managed it , living there, for five years. :-)
Laura: My biggest accomplishment would have to be the book I wrote. I haven’t shown it to anyone, but it took a long time to write!
Jamie: I've been raising my son with special needs.  Gosh it's hard but I would count that as my biggest accomplishment

Today is Tell A Joke Day, which for Dan is basically just another Wednesday... (So did you hear about the magical tractor? It was driving down the road and then it turned into a field!!)

This police academy uses "The Chicken Test" to make sure its cadets are focused and unable to be distracted by ANYTHING

"Exercise and Extra Fries"

Plus all the links and extra bits from Holly & Dan for Wednesday August 9.

Today's Hero of the Day is Harry Brown, who saved a kidnapped little girl... from 8000km away... using pizza!!

A little girl offered to do the "bongs" on radio while Big Ben gets repaired over the next few years, and the radio station wrote back!

We got some great advice from you on how to make supermarket shopping way cheaper!
Sandy: Check the price per 100/mls or per 100/gms etc – sometimes a product has more in it, even though it seems more expensive it works out cheaper 
Carol: Go to the butcher or the fruit and vege shop rather than buying those things from the supermarket 
Nick: Shop online and compare which shops have the cheapest stuff for what you're after 
Mel: Bulk buy when things are on special. As long as it wont go off, it'll be good as gold. 
Hannah: Don’t shop when you're hungry 
Jemma: Leave your kids at home!

Crowder wins today's Twitterfeed:

Dan's New Outfits for Shineathon

Plus all the links and extra bits from Holly & Dan for Wednesday August 9.

Make sure you're watching Shineathon next week (Sky 201 or Freeview 25) to see Dan's brand new outfits, as purchased by Holly & Maxene!

After hearing that EasyJet is releasing a 10-hour jet engine album to help people fall asleep, we asked you for your best tips and advice on how to fall asleep.
Liz says "Take Tart Cherry capsule 1 hour before bed. Makes melatonin to reset body clock for sleep. Also helps regenerate retina from exposure to computer and smartphones"
Holly talked about this concoction she has most nights, which stops her randomly waking up during the night - get the recipe here.
Joanna says "Create a playlist of "sleepy songs" and play it all night at the lowest possible volume. Play the same playlist everyday."
And classic Dad joke from Andrew: ""if you're struggling to fall asleep, lay on the edge of the bed... you'll soon drop off!!"

Talk about brave! Jamie Grace let her Dad put makeup on her...

We also chatted about naming your car (cos we're sure we're not the only ones who do this) - and discovered that Holly has this amazing ability to name inanimate objects (and also living objects, but mostly cars, boats, stuff like that...) - so if you ever have anything you want named by Holly, This email address is being protected from spambots.

An Australian woman lost her wedding ring in the largest sand dune dessert in the world - 6 months later, someone found it and handed it in.

Here are some ways to ‘detox’ from your smartphone addiction (maybe go for a phone-free weekend!) 
▪ Get a watch – some of us use the fact that we need to check the time as an excuse to pull the phone out. But in some circles, watches are coming back into vogue.
▪ Spend more time WITH the people you like – Phones keep us connected, but wouldn’t it be nice to actually SEE the people that we are staying connected to? 
▪ Uninstall social media apps – Try it and you’ll notice how much time you were spending on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram etc. 
▪ Make a ‘to-do’ list….on actual paper – it will help you set and achieve goals each day AND keep you from checking your phone for that list.
