hey jude

JUST in case you haven't seen this yet:

the incredible human body

Check out this crazy slideshow from the NY Times online, showing amazing 3-D images of bodies after being partially dissected. INCREDIBLE! It reminds me of the "Bodies" exhibit, which is perpetually extended here in NYC. Mom and Dad, I think you saw a version of that same exhibit Anyway, if you haven't seen it and get a chance to, definitely pay the exorbitant fee, because it's worth it. Until then, these pics should tide you over.

Mom, you asked a long time ago about how to make links in these posts (and, Sam, your link below reminded me). Here's a quick course:

New York Times Homepage

was made by typing the next line directly into the "compose" field (using the "Edit Html" tab):

[a href=""]New York Times Homepage[/a]

except you must replace each "[" with "<" and each "]" with ">". Ok, that's enough for today. Class dismissed.

Great Youtubers

These guys are brothers who started a project at the beginning of 2007 called 'Brotherhood 2.0' where they used video communication instead of typical phone conversation to keep each other in the loop of their lives.  They make great videos, but also started a movement called 'Nerdfighting,' and have built a community of youtubers worldwide that has banded together and, yes, been awesome, but also has fought for social justice.  I thought you guys might like to check out their channel.

Love, Sam

I wish we were having another party....

Stayin' Alive! The Power of Music

Hey, musical Holders:

Did you read that the American Heart Assn. has revised their suggestions on the administration of CPR - no longer do they suggest two mouth to mouth breaths each 30 seconds along with the rapid chest compressions. Apparently many people don't even try CPR because they do not want to lock lips with a stranger. Further, though, the breath routine never seemed to help much . Now, they suggest we just do 100 chest compressions per minute - simply that, no lips. (Although I do retain a colorful fantasy that after I save someone's life, they will pop up and kiss me - perhaps twice in a 30 second period).

And, oh, in case you're wondering how fast 100 compressions per minute is, just (the AMA says) remember the beat to the Bee Gees' 70's tune, "Stayin Alive". That oughta' do it.

Singing while you work is permitted, apparently. " OOO, OOO, OOO, STAYIN ALIVE, STAYIN ALIVE..."

In other health-related news, and contributing additionally to the benefits of saving someone's life, it is reported that singing may help one lose weight. I believe this may explain why we Holders are all so slim.
