I have no words...

Yeah, I know, it has nothing to do with bypass surgery, but it's too good to not share. Stand By Me is absolutely my most favorite song ever, out of all the favorite songs I've ever had. It applies across all spectrums of life, whether it be in our personal relationships or globally. I believe that we're put here on this earth to help and take care of each other, and do everything we can to make somebody else's life better. Stand By Me just sums that up beautifully for me.

Anyway, there's a group called Playing for Change and they're incredible. Beyond incredible. They start with one person laying down a base track and travel all over the world, layering tracks, creating the most fabulous and joyous music. And, you guessed it, they did it with Stand By Me. I heard this for the first time yesterday and it made me cry, it touched me so deeply. I just listened to it again and cried again. I definitely need to add them to my Zune!!

So here's the vid, enjoy. Grab a tissue first, and turn up the speakers!!

(And here's where we find out if Meg can embed a video...)

I cant see the video but it might be bc I am at work and our server tends to block things like that.

Tracey has a honda. I love vulcan's. They are usually the one I see on the road and ask tracey "ooh, whats that one. Its pretty". It is so funny that your husband wants you to take over his bike so he can get a bigger does Tracey! He wont let me drive this one...he thinks I might drop it...which might be true. The shifting thing scares me a little. Seems a tad confusing!
