After more than 60 years spent falling down staircases, the Slinky is finally getting to strut its stuff.
For over three riveting minutes of gravity-powered determination, one enterprising metal spring manages to Slinky away on an inclined treadmill. Youtube user Abzde captured the epic walk, which packs drama (will it fall off the edge?), intrigue (where is it going?) and humor (it's a slinky on a treadmill) into quite the viral hit!
"The Breeze and I" is a popular song. The original music (instrumental only) entitled Andalucia, was written by the Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona. Emilio de Torre added Spanish lyrics, and English lyrics were added by Al Stillman. The best-known versions of the song were by Jimmy Dorsey in 1940 and by Caterina Valente in 1955. Valente's reached #13 in the United States and the top 5 in the United Kingdom in 1955. The Jimmy Dorsey recording, with a vocal by Bob Eberly, was released by Decca Records as catalog number 3150. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on July 20, 1940 and lasted 9 weeks on the chart, peaking at #2.
This is how much God loved the world: He gave His Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending His Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to Him.

The Roman emperor Diocletian,
following an edict in 303 A.D.,
failed to stamp the Bible out.
The French Revolution could
not crush it with secular
philosophy (Rousseau, one
of its heroes, converted to
Christianity). The Communists
failed to stamp it out with
atheism and political ideology.
One might well ask why this
book has been banned, burned,
and bludgeoned with such
animosity and scorn. The
great Reformation hero John
Calvin responds in this way:
"Whenever people slander
God's word, they show they
feel within its power, however
unwillingly or reluctantly." - Joe Boot

Jesus Christ, please call:
The Bible is worth all other books which have ever
been printed. - Patrick Henry (original member
of the Continental Congress)
The Bible is the anchor of our liberties. - President U.S. Grant
It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially
a Bible-reading people. The principals of the
Bible are the groundwork of human freedom.
- Horace Greeley (Editor)
That Book is the rock on which our Republic rests.
- President Andrew Jackson
In all my perplexities and distresses,
the Bible has never failed to give me
light and strength. - Gen. Robert E. Lee
Bible reading is an education in itself.
- Lord Tennyson (Poet)
The Bible claims to be the Word
of the only true God. In addition
to historical, archaeological, and
scientific proofs, there are numerous
internal proofs. No such evidences
exist for other "sacred writings."
The Bible was written during 1,600
years by 40 prophets, most of
whom lived in diverse cultures,
at different times in history, yet
who never contradict but comple -
ment each other. For the Qur'an,
Muslims must take the word of
Muhammad, just as the Book
of Mormon rests solely upon
Joseph Smith's word. But every
biblical prophet is confirmed
by 39 other prophets.
