A Wild Ride

The Train Ride
I received this note a few days ago with a link to a video that is very impressive. Read below, then click the YouTube video.

”This video came from a fellow who works for the Rail Road as a train dispatcher.  Every once in a while he sends a cool video involving trains.  This is one of them.

“Trains nowadays mount cameras in their cabs, facing forward and backward, the same way police cars do. This video is a rearward camera.  This is video of a train that ran through a tornado.

“First there is the normal rearward view from the last of three engines, with the trees looking normal.  Then you begin to see rain, and then, halfway through the video the trees begin to sway violently . . . and then the "fun" begins.”


Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Dress properly--The most important thing you put on everyday, is your expression. It’s more than a smile. It’s the sparkle in your eyes. It tells people that you’re happy, that you enjoy life, and that you have love in your heart.

Quote of the Day
I have not failed.
I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

Joke of the Day

A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog.

The children fell to discussing the dog's duties.

"They use him to keep crowds back," said one youngster.

"No," said another, "he's just for good luck."

A third child brought the argument to a close. "They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrant."

And, speaking of dogs…

We need to stop cutting down so many trees…
