Good Morning East Tennessee!

It's Tuesday! You know what that means! It's time for the profound, strange, inspiring, humorous, weird.

"The world suffers a lot, not because of the violence of bad people, but because of the silence of good people." --Unknown

In England, a lady called her local emergency number in order to contact the Police department. She was reporting a missing snowman.

New product - A device that trains you to smile? There's a new device made of rubber which you put in your mouth, and it forces your jaw and facial muscles to smile. Kind of sad.

Another new product - Hamburger scented candle? That's right: White Castle (The famous hamburger chain) has developed a hamburger scented candle.

Do you like animal crackers? Most people do. Do you know how many animal shapes there are?

Every day there are 20 banks that are robbed. The average "take" is $2,500.00.

The average violin is made up of 70 different pieces of wood.

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." Martin Luther King, Jr.

No kidding: New York City has an annual event where subway riders take off their pants and ride the subway to their destinations. Apparently the event has grown over the years and more and more people are doing it. Why? I don't know. I guess it's the same reason people go streaking.

"A man who finds no satisfaction in himself will seek for it in vain elsewhere." La Rochefoucauld

"Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life." Jean Paul Richter

Yesterday (1/10/11) Ted Williams (The homeless guy with the golden voice) recorded his first commercial for Kraft Macaroni. I am hoping, watching and waiting to see if Mr. Williams reaches back for his friends on the streets and uses his success to help others who all possess equally valuable gifts.

Have a great day!

Oh yeah - There are 18 animal cracker shapes.
