The Saga Continues
Here's the current on Raven the Bead Girl. Keep in touch with Stark Truth to follow today's and further developments. Looks like new "doo" due at school this morning. If you want to catch up on the history of this fiasco, follow the links on the Stark Truth page. Stark's comment section is constantly updated. Obnoxious Droppings and A Sailor in the Desert are keeping up on this too. (Reminder: See Indigo's Lynx at left for URLs to referenced blogs.)

Bob's email begins with "I'm not Catholic, but this is impressive." Then he gives this link that begins: " He was like no one else in our lifetimes, let's face it, bigger than any president, bigger than any dictator, bigger than entertainers, than Elvis, than the Beatles, bigger than all the sports heroes from Babe Ruth to this day combined."
If you thought you had heard, read, or seen everything about Pope John Paul during the last few weeks, as did I, then you were mistaken, as was I. Take a couple of minutes to link and read this.
"I'm not Catholic, but this is impressive." proved to be an understatement.

SOMETHING WE ALL NEED TO KNOW: IS IT A STROKE?
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
* Ask the individual to SMILE.
* Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
* Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE.
If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 9-1-1 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the general public to learn the three questions. They presented their conclusions at the American Stroke Association's annual meeting last February. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people, you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
