Well some of us grown ups can. Here's some great singing by a priest at a wedding. :lovestruck:



Gives a few suspect glances at the bride though :?

I found it touching how the young man in the white shirt and his sidekick seemed so totally transfixed by their classmates talent.

Both of those videos were great. I got a really big kick out of the singing priest. I wonder what the back story is to that. Did he know the bride and groom particularly well? It seemed totally unexpected, so I don't think he does it often, if ever. What a nice way to end my day! :-D

And to begin their lives together! :thumbs:

I enjoyed the singing priest also. The smile and eyebrow lift around 3:00 was unexpected but I thought it was sweet and funny.

Thanks for posting, Suranis. :bighug:

A day after World Turtle Day, SeaWorld releases 4 sea turtles into the ocean

Admittedly for the team, the sea turtle releases were bittersweet.

"All the turtles, when we get them, they look very sad," said senior aquarist Carlyn Wanta. "When we're able to give them that TLC, medication and good nutrition, and just time and attention, to see them start to turn around. ... You get to a moment like this when they take off to the ocean, that's the best reward."

Alex and Linda, named after Playalinda Beach because "he" was found there, were released at Playalinda at Canaveral National Seashore early Thursday. After weeks of rehabilitation, Linda bounced back after an infection. Alex had washed up on the beach last weekend. After a checkup by SeaWorld — the team suspects he was caught up in rough surf — he, too, was deemed OK to go back.

Since January, "we've rescued 43 sea turtles," said Wanta, adding SeaWorld has been rescuing turtles since 1980. "Earlier this year, we hit our 2,000th turtle rescue."

The four released Thursday bring the total number of releases since January to 39.

If you like critters of various kinds, this should put a smile on your face. Unfortunately there is no sound. I would love to hear all the munching.

Thanks for the replies. I closed and reopened both my Facebook and Fogbow tabs and it was still not showing the video. I came back to read new posts on this thread and NOW I can see it.

The extraordinary story of how I found my parents

Tuy was left at an orphanage during the Vietnam War.
An American couple gave him a new life in the US.
He later returned to Vietnam to find peace, but ended up discovering so much more.


Told by David Lemke

Nguyen Quoc Tuy was born in 1970 or 1971 in Sa Dec, a small town in southern Vietnam’s Mekong Delta.

Tuy - pronounced two-ee - was handed over to the local church, which doubled as an orphanage, when he was just seven days old.

The protracted and bloody Vietnam War - called the American War by the Vietnamese - was still raging in the swampy delta region to the south of Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon, as it was called then.

When he was one, Tuy contracted the polio virus from contaminated water. The virus attacked the muscles in his legs and left his lower limbs under-developed.

By the time he was three, he was moved to a better-equipped orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City and, because of his health condition, was soon put on an adoption list.

Thousands of miles away, a couple on the west coast of the United States were preparing to give him a new home.
