Inspiration - The Music of Possiblility

Patrick Henry Hughes was born without eyes and with a tightening of the joints that would prevent his 350 limbs from ever straightening. But at nine months he took to the piano, by age two he was playing requests, and now -- as a straight A undergrad majoring in Spanish at the University of Louisville -- he and his father function as a single member of the Cardinals marching band. "He's my hero," says his dad, who works the graveyard shift at UPS in order to spend as much time with his son as possible. "Imagine the possibilities I didn't know that I now know from hearing him play."

Fire Safety - Please watch; could save a life!

Burn This is a dramatic video (30-second, very short) about how to deal with a common kitchen fire ... Oil in a frying pan.      Please read the following introduction and then watch the show ... It's a real eye-opener!! You'll want to send this one on to your family and friends.

This video saved my home about 6 months ago.  I started a grease fire that (while I went to check my email) flamed all the way to the ceiling) My first instinct was to spray it with my sink sprayer, but I had just seen this video. Bo finally got the fire under control by trying to smother it, he picked the pan of flaming grease up and ran out the front door with it. I knew no one would ever believe this was an accident as the house had been on the market to sell for several months!
