Horrible accident in Germany

A friend sent this photo of a horrible accident in Germany. The picture may be kind of hard to take for some of you. If you look closely you can see what appears to be some survivors of the accident still in the wreckage.

Although the picture is horrible, it makes you realize how quickly our loved ones can be taken from us.

I've lost some very good friends this way!! See the extended entry for a picture only if you have a strong stomach...

An inlaw in Northern Wisconsin had that view out his front window. YES, a beer truck overturned in front of his house on WI 51.

The good part? The county mounties wanted the road cleared and neighbors volunteered. The inlaws ended up with several months worth of FREE BEER stashed in their garage.

Surprising how fast Wisconsinites will respond in a real crisis.

I worked in France the winter of 1986-87, the coldest winter there in the 20th century. One day I saw a flat-bed truck abandoned on the side of the road. It had a full load of cases of Perrier water. Every bottle had frozen and popped its cap.

Now, if if had been beer, it would have been chilled just right. I've never been able to look at a Perrier with anything but contempt since then.
