Have You Seen His Video on YouTube?

This man will give you goosebumps!

Only my opinion . . . but I think Paul Potts is even more amazing than Susan Boyle (see her below)

He was also on Britain's Got Talent -

This is Susan Boyle. She is 47 years old and simply amazed the judges with her performance in the auditions for Britains Got Talent, singing a song from Les Miserables.

"I Dreamed a Dream"

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame.

And still I dream he'll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather...

I had a dream my life would be
So different form this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.

The Conficker Eye Chart provides a really quick one-click way to check if your Windows PC has a Conficker infection. The test is fairly simple, if you're one of the 99% or so that don't have it, you'll see the image as it is shown to the right. There are other ways to tell as well, however this seems quite simple.

Once you click on the link, if some of the images are missing, then you may have the Conficker worm. Baylor has the eye chart here and adds, "Conficker (aka Downadup, Kido) is known to block access to over 100 anti-virus and security websites.


"If you are blocked from loading the remote images in the first row of the top table above (AV/security sites) but not blocked from loading the remote images in the second row (websites of alternative operating systems) then your Windows PC may be infected by Conficker (or some other malicious software).""If you can see all six images in both rows of the top table, you are most likely not infected by Conficker. This can also be presented if your internet connection utilizes a proxy, but Baylor does not utilize proxy technology."

This man decorates the tree in his back yard every year. This year the egg count is up to 2900, about a 100 egg increase over last year's version. Placing all the eggs on the tree is bad enough, but who decorates all those eggs . . . ?

The tradition of the egg tree started in Germany. The eggs used for cooking Easter meals are not broken but are emptied by blowing the contents into a bowl through pinholes at either end of the egg. The hollow eggs are then beautifully decorated and hung from shrubs and trees during Easter week.

Pantone Color of the Year for 2009

PANTONE® 14-0848 Mimosa, a warm, engaging yellow, as the color of the year for 2009. In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow.
"The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance," explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation."
Best illustrated by the abundant flowers of the Mimosa tree and the sparkle of the brilliantly hued cocktail, the 2009 color of the year represents the hopeful and radiant characteristics associated with the color yellow. Mimosa is a versatile shade that coordinates with any other color, has appeal for men and women, and translates to both fashion and interiors. Look for women's accessories, home furnishings, active sportswear and men's ties and shirts in this vibrant hue.
