    Sports and Athletics is one place for this post but if anyone wants to duplicate it under general discussion please feel free,.... too late I have:).

    The idea occurs to me that perhaps it should be TV & PC turn off but then if you are reading this..................:eek:

    People in the US watch TV for more than four hours a day.
    That's equivalent to sitting in front of a TV for two full months nonstop every year. It's not for nothing that TV has been called the plug-in drug, the boob tube, and the idiot box.

    Not on the 24!!!!! On Opra they are interviewing a 10 year old boy who wants to be president in 2032! He's wrote a book and some of the proceeds are beeing donated for finding a cure for diabetes! He also has to relatives that are type 1 and he raise money every year! I believe that's a good thing. Anything in life can be used for good or bad it's up to parents to be parents and quit letting TV's and Video games raise our children... I believe the parents that would be reading this forum are beeing parents!

    Anyway get the word out the faster we can cure this disease the sooner our children can be children!
