Isle of Man Motorcycle Race

Monday, February 27, 2012

This will grab your attention.

The Isle of Man TT was for many years the most prestigious motor-cycle race in the world. The racing is held on public roads closed for racing by an Act of Tynwald (the parliament of the Isle of Man ). It is the oldest motor-cycle racing circuit still in use.

The official lap record for the Snaefell Mountain Course is 17 Minutes and 12.30 seconds at an average speed of 131.578 mph. THERE HAVE BEEN OVER 230+ DEATH'S ON THIS INSANE MOUTAIN COURSE!!!

Turn on your sound ... and ENJOY THE THRILL RIDE!!!

    The first wipeout and the guy flying upside down over a rock fence made me wonder if he died.

    ACK! And the sounds they make when they crash would be~ SPLAT! ACK! Not for me. I don't find this sort of thing even remotely exciting. Stupid, yes. Exciting, no. If 230+ deaths aren't enough~ then...good luck to the fools who choose to race. *hugs* BB~

Puppy size

Monday, February 27, 2012

Puppy Size
This is one of the neatest stories you will ever hear.
You will know precisely what this little girl is talking
about at the end (you'll want to share this one with
your loved ones and special friends)!

'Danielle keeps repeating it over and over again.
We've been back to this animal shelter at least
five times. It has been weeks now since we started
all of this,' the mother told the volunteer.

'What is it she keeps asking for?' the volunteer asked.

'Puppy size!' replied the mother.

'Well, we have plenty of puppies, if that's what she's looking for.' 'I know.....
we have seen most of them, ' the mom said in frustration...

Just then Danielle came walking into the office

'Well, did you find one?' asked her mom.

'No, not this time,' Danielle said with sadness in her voice. 'Can we come
back on the weekend?'

The two women looked at each other, shook their heads and laughed

'You never know when we will get more dogs. Unfortunately, there's always
a supply,' the volunteer said.

Danielle took her mother by the hand and headed to the door. 'Don't worry,
I'll find one this weekend,' she said.

Over the next few days both Mom and Dad had long conversations with her.
They both felt she was being too particular. 'It's this weekend or we're not
looking any more,' Dad finally said in frustration.

'We don't want to hear anything more about puppy size, either,' Mom added.

Sure enough, they were the first ones in the shelter on Saturday morning ...
By now Danielle knew her way around, so she ran right for the section
that housed the smaller dogs.

Tired of the routine, mom sat in the small waiting room at the end of the
first row of cages. There was an observation window so you could see
the animals during times when visitors weren't permitted.

Danielle walked slowly from cage to cage, kneeling periodically to take a
closer look. One by one the dogs were brought out and she held each one.
One by one she said, 'Sorry, but you're not the one.'

It was the last cage on this last day in search of the perfect pup. The volunteer
opened the cage door and the child carefully picked up the dog and held it
closely. This time she took a little longer.

'Mom, that's it! I found the right puppy! He's the one! I know it!' She screamed
with joy. 'It's the puppy size!'

'But it's the same size as all the other puppies you held over the last few weeks,'
Mom said.

'No not size... The sighs. When I held him in my arms, he sighed,' she said.
'Don't you remember? When I asked you one day what love is, you told me
love depends on the sighs of your heart. The more you love, the bigger the sigh!'

The two women looked at each other for a moment. Mom didn't know whether
to laugh or cry. As she stooped down to hug the child, she did a little of both.

'Mom, every time you hold me, I sigh. When you and Daddy come home from work
and hug each other, you both sigh. I knew I would find the right puppy if it sighed
when I held it in my arms,' she said. Then, holding the puppy up close to her face,
she said, 'Mom, he loves me. I heard the sighs of his heart!'

Close your eyes for a moment and think about the love that makes
you sigh. I not only find it in the arms of my loved ones, but in the
caress of a sunset, the kiss of the moonlight and the gentle brush
of cool air on a hot day. They are the sighs of God. Take the time
to stop and listen; you will be surprised at what you hear. 'Life is
not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that
take our breath away.'

I hope your life is filled with Sighs!!!

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!
Life is too short and friends are too few.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't.

I wonder what they pay this guy per hour.

768 feet straight up ... wait until you see this!
It is incredible what people do for a living!
Just wait for the cartoon intro to finish, then hold on to your seat.

A good workout, but it could be taking it to the extreme?

    Great advice and beautiful pictures. I don't know what kind of bird noise was in the background, but I used to hear that type of bird when my Dad and I would fish along a creek. It brought back wonderful memories.
