In New York, a woman saved a little boy’s life giving him CPR after being hit in the chest with a baseball bat. About 7 years later, in 2006 that very same boy saved her from choking to death giving her the Heimlich maneuver in the restaurant that he worked.

It's a blog hop week - wohoooo!  Make sure to come back on Thursday.


President Carter once told a joke during a speech to a Japanese audience which caused the audience to erupt in laughter. Impressed, he asked how the interpreter managed to get such a laugh. The interpreter admitted that he had said, “President Carter told a funny story. Everyone must laugh”.
