Sometimes miracles happen

Sometimes the news is bad.. Sometimes a miracle happen. Tears of joy finally escape my eyes tonight instead of yet another tragedy about a child..
Sebastian de la Cruz stopped breathing while his aunt Pamela Rauseo was driving in bumper to bumper Miami traffic.. She screamed for help as the baby went purple without air..
She frantically performed CPR on the baby.
And suddenly…she got help. NBC NEWS reports this:

The female good Samaritan who came to her aid was Lucila Godoy, who was driving with her own child when she spotted Rauseo in distress.
"I wasn’t thinking. I just got out of the car and saw the baby and heard her calling him Sebastian, which is my baby’s name, and I just freaked out," Godoy said.
"I couldn’t think. I was like, ‘Please don’t die on me.’"
Flagged down by the Miami Herald photographer who took the gripping photos, Sweetwater Police Officer Amauris Bastidas also rushed to help.
The three did CPR on Sebastian, who started breathing — and then suddenly stopped again. More rounds of chest compressions and rescue breathing followed until the baby started breathing on his own again.
"That’s when I broke down crying out of relief, knowing that he was OK," Rauseo said.

And this…

Rauseo said that she learned how to to CPR seven years ago but had forgotten the basics. Now she plans to take a refresher course to get certified.







"I would suggest that anyone with a baby or a baby in their family do so," she said.

I told my wife for several years now that this is something I want to learn. She already knows it. It’s time for me to act..
Miracles do happen.
And there’s good people still around.

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
