    Miracle survival

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540...29367#39829367

    Slightly off topic... but my cousin is a biker--he rides a 'Friday'--, so that makes it legit... My cousin's daughter is a student at the University of Colorado. Look at the clip above--that was on the TODAY show on Monday. She fell off a cliff and is lucky to be alive. When you see the clip it is amazing she is recovering so well. It is nice to see a positive survival story-- makes you feel good inside-- sort of like the Chilean miners, but this one was close to home.

    train safe-

    That's an incredible story! "Someone" was looking out for her.

    Wow. That is one positive young lady!

    I can relate to her wishing she could remember the fall. I feel that way about my accident, though I might not like it so much if I actually did remember.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
