N: i can relate. have you seen Jesus' senior picture?
S: i beg your pardon?

My nephew corban just turned the big oh-one today!!! since it would be rude to only list one thing that i love about him, i will list 10:
1. when he was a few months younger, avery would come over to him and he would tense all of his muscles and close his eyes really tight as if to brace himself from whatever may happen.
2. when he walks, he does this sort of godzilla thing where he raises his arms high above his head i THINK to keep his balance.
3. he is ALSO learning sign language just like me. now, my niece and both my nephews are signing babies!!!!
4. he is just so small and precious
5. he enjoys licking the dog.
6. he eats sand, a mutual favorite.
7. he reminds me of my Grampa Henry, whom i miss dearly.
8. he has blonde hair which is a first in our fam (besides when ken and tris first got married- her hair was blonde then but they don't know what color it is naturally now.)
9. he gets distracted by everything, liken unto his aunt stacy
10. he is now one whole year old!!!!

Chuck Norris sues, says his tears no cancer cure
Fri Dec 21, 2007 7:21pm EST

By Christine Kearney
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Tough-guy actor and martial arts expert Chuck Norris sued publisher Penguin on Friday over a book he claims unfairly exploits his famous name, based on a satirical Internet list of "mythical facts" about him.
Penguin published "The Truth About Chuck Norris: 400 facts about the World's Greatest Human" in November. Author Ian Spector and two Web sites he runs to promote the book, including, are also named in the suit.
The book capitalizes on "mythical facts" that have been circulating on the Internet since 2005 that poke fun at Norris' tough-guy image and super-human abilities, the suit said.
It includes such humorous "facts" as "Chuck Norris's tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried" and "Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits," the suit said, as well as "Chuck Norris can charge a cell phone by rubbing it against his beard."
"Some of the 'facts' in the book are racist, lewd or portray Mr. Norris as engaged in illegal activities," the lawsuit alleges.
Norris, who rose to fame in the 1970s and 1980s as the star of such films as "The Delta Force" and "Missing in Action," says the book's title would mislead readers into thinking the facts were true.
"Defendants have misappropriated and exploited Mr. Norris's name and likeness without authorization for their own commercial profit," said the lawsuit.
The suit, filed in Manhattan federal court, seeks unspecified monetary damages for trademark infringement, unjust enrichment and privacy rights.
Norris, whose real name is Carlos Ray Norris, claims in the suit he is protective of what his name is associated with. He has recently made U.S. headlines for backing Republican presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
A spokesman for Penguin, owned by Britain's Pearson, was not immediately available for comment.
