Four for Friday
1.- Notification: Rose Tani, the 90-year-old mother of astronaut Daniel Tani, died this Wednesday in the Chicago suburb of Lombard. Police said Rose Tani stopped behind a school bus at a railroad crossing and then drove around the vehicle, bypassing the lowered crossing gate. A train struck the elder Tani's vehicle on the passenger side and pushed it down the tracks before stopping. Daniel Tani is believed to be the first American astronaut to lose a close family member while in space. If you were on a space mission, would you want to be notified of a death in your family, or would you prefer that you be notified once you returned to Earth?

I think I would want to be told. Even though I could do nothing from there, I could still start the grieving process.

2.- Memory: Can you remember what got for Christmas last year? Well, according to a new survey, half of British men cannot remember what was under their Christmas tree. A 2005 Canadian study was the first to systematically mark the onset of "childhood amnesia" in children rather than adults. The research shows that by our tenth birthday our early pre-school memories have receded into an inaccessible past. What is the earliest verifiable autobiographical memory you can commit to?

I know exactly what I got, because I got NOTHING, NADA!

3.- Strip Clubs: Do you think strip clubs (the ones where the ladies dance for the men) debase women, men, or both?

OK, some people will not like my answer. I think to each his own. If you do not want to go to these places, then stay home. If you want to go, then go. If you are just pissed because your hubby went, next time go with him. I have been to strip bars and wound up having a great time. I'm not a prude, and I don't judge people. I think most women who are against strip clubs are either very religious or very insecure about themselves. Strictly my own opinion. But like I said, I've been, and even been neighbors with some of the girls, and they are just women just like the rest of us. I could go on about this one forever, but I think that's not wise so I'll shut up now.

4.- Hold It: This one's an oldie but goodie here on the For For Friday. Right now, from where you're sitting, locate a clock or watch and hold your breath for as long as possible. Okay, now tell the rest of us for how long you were able to hold your breath? (FYI: The last time I asked this question--on May 20, 2004--Kim and Sya held theirs for one (1) minute, Dave and AC went for 45 seconds, I lasted 28, and seven people chose not to even try.)

27 seconds (gasping now for air)

I live very close to where they make BMWs in the U.S. (Greer, SC)! A colleague of mine just won one of those BMWs in a charity auction, but opted for the cash instead! Should've given it to you - :-)! Merry Christmas to you & yours!
