I heard. 

Small, yet liberating steps...

They're only allowed to drive those toy cars you propel with your feet?

Sorry, bad joke :-[

I still think it's a publicity stunt myself. A smokescreen because the big things haven't changed :(

I hope I'm wrong though, and that it's the start of something bigger.

The man who is accused of murdering the lovely midwife, Samantha Eastwood has been left cowering in his cell after being beaten up.

What a shame.

A hospital in Arizona has found itself with an unexpected staff problem as 16 of it's intensive care nurses are pregnant. Most of the women are due to give birth between October and January. The hospital says it is prepared for the large scale absence.  :D

The Indonesian island of Lombok has been shaken by two strong earthquakes after weeks of tremors that have killed hundreds of people. No Tsunami warnings have been issued and so far there have been no reports of new fatalities.

^ The weather has gone bonkers this year. Itís hard to comprehend how many peopleís lives have been devastated by it.

Iím reading the local news about a fatal accident that I saw the aftermath of last night. A man died & he was only 42. I canít stop thinking about it. His poor family & friends. It puts life into perspective!

When you think of how big the planet is
Or how small compared to the universe
You can appreciate how very vulnerable
That tiny strip of land named Florida is.

The storm has left devastation in it's wake. They are not expecting to find anyone else left alive.  :(
