~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

No race can prosper till it learns there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem. - Booker T. Washington

Four-year-old Bradley Davies knew there was a problem when his mother Joanne started shaking and losing consciousness and began to slip into a diabetic coma. But she had taught him what to do and he knew he had to boost her sugar levels.

He fed her a biscuit and milk after dialing 999, and then waited for paramedics to reach their home.

Bradley said: "I told the woman on the phone mummy was shaking. I gave her milk and a biscuit and opened the door for paramedics with my doctor's coat on."

Paramedics in Liverpool were surprised to find Bradley Davies at the door of his home with a toy stethoscope around his neck.

Joanne was allowed home after two days at Liverpool's Fazakerley Hospital.

A Merseyside Ambulance spokesman said: "What this little boy did can't be underestimated. His quick-thinking probably saved her life."

A young lawyer, just out of Law School, was pleading his first case in South Carolina.

A train had killed twenty-four pigs, and the young attorney was trying to impress the jury with the magnitude of the injury.

"Yes, Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, twenty-four pigs. Imagine, twenty-four pigs. Twice the number there are in the jury box."
