A father's bedtime song

What a great song! If I had an Ipod I would want this on it.
Its very sweet -really puts it all into perspective.
Has this guy done any other songs?

This video has had over 150,000 hits since I first saw it yesterday,
so I sense a new 'interweb sensation' is imminent.

There are a two more songs by him here ...

... but they're not a touch on this.

Smith, 18, was waiting to cross the tracks. The gates were down to allow a CSX train to continue its southbound route. When that train passed, Smith, apparently too intent on texting he was hit by a northbound Norfolk Southern train that he didn't see coming from the other direction. He was thrown about 50 feet. » Full article here

12-Step Internet Recovery Program

1. I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my newspaper like I used to, before the Internet.

2. I will eat breakfast with a knife and fork and not with one hand typing.

3. I will get dressed before noon.

4. I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash clothes, and plan dinner before even thinking of the Internet.

5. I will sit down and write a letter to those unfortunate few friends and family that are Internet-deprived.

6. I will call someone on the phone who I cannot contact via the Internet.

7. I will read a book...if I still remember how.

8. I will listen to those around me and their needs and stop telling them to turn the TV down so I can hear the video's on the Internet.

9. I will not be tempted during TV commercials to check for email.

10. I will try and get out of the house at least once a week, if it is necessary or not.

11. I will remember that my bank is not forgiving if I forget to balance my checkbook because I was too busy on the Internet.

12. Last, but not least, I will remember that I must go to bed sometime ... and the Internet will always be there tomorrow!

Big Mac Turns 40

The world's largest Big Mac sculpture (14 feet high, 12 feet wide), at the grand opening of the McDonald's Big Mac Museum Restaurant in North Huntingdon, Pa., Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2007.
The restaurant opened in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Big Mac.

Normally, a 40-year-old sandwich would be something to be avoided.
Unless you're one of millions who flock to McDonald's each year to chow down on a Big Mac. The triple-decker burger, which helped breed America's super-size culture and restaurants' ever-expanding jumbo meals, is turning 40.
The Big Mac was first introduced in 1967 by Jim Delligatti, a McDonald's franchise owner in Uniontown, Pa. A year later, it became a staple of McDonald's menus nationwide.

7- Month Old Child Dies From Heat In Parked Car

August 24, 2007

ST. LOUIS — Authorities said the 7-month-old's parents are a doctor and a medical researcher at the university. Their names and the child's name have not been released.
On a day when the temperature reached the upper 90s, a woman spotted the baby, called 911 and broke the car window, police Capt. James Gieseke said. The child was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The child had been in the car for three hours, Gieseke said. It's believed the mother left the child in the back seat of the father's car, but that the father thought the mother had taken the child.
"There was a horrible, devastating mix-up as to who was going to take the child to day care," Gieseke said.
Details were still sketchy because the couple was too distraught to give complete statements, Gieseke said.

Old people like to have sex as much as young people.
Many older Americans routinely engage in vaginal intercourse, oral sex and masturbation, a landmark study into a long-taboo subject reported Wednesday.
"From a societal perspective, I would say that old people are young people later in life," said Dr. Stacy Tesler Lindau, lead author of the federally funded study, which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Among the survey's many discoveries was that about half of those 57 to 75 years of age who remained sexually active reported engaging in oral sex. More than half of men and a quarter of women said they had masturbated during the previous year, a figure that remained constant whether they were sexually active or not. The figure on masturbation "reflects a level of sexual need, even among men at very advanced ages, and speaks to the fact that sexuality is a lifelong proposition," said Edward O. Laumann, a study co-author and a sociologist at the University of Chicago. But not for everybody. Thirty-five percent of women versus 13 percent of men rated sex as "not at all important." » Article here
