Give me your thoughts! Sat, 27 Dec 2008 17:14:53 EST Would like to share a cute story! One of my co-workers was sharing with us about her son who is either one and an half or two (I cannot remember. She put on an Elvis CD and he son was dancing and laughing and moving around really, really fast. She took it off and he son started crying. She put it back on and he started dancing and smiling and laughing again. He got mad at her everytime she went to take it off.

Thu, 18 Sep 2008 18:57:59 EST America's Got Talent Has anyone watched this show. There is a guy who is a young guy impersonating Elvis. He looks pretty good for the part, the singing is so-so, sometimes better than others depending on the song. I haven't got into to the show this year like in the past since my daughter is now in cheerleading and we're gone so much. Just wondering if anyone has seen him, I think he's made it pretty far in the competition. Thu, 18 Sep 2008 09:56:25 EST I just joined your team! Hi, I've been a spark member for years! I was sitting here at the computer doing my spark entries and my Elvis CD is playing in the background, and I thought "I wonder if there is an Elvis team" and sure enough there you were. <BR> <BR> So I decided to join y'all.
