    or sue.. and nancy or something

    And he said: "Son, this world is rough
    And if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough
    And I knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along.
    So I give ya that name and I said goodbye
    I knew you'd have to get tough or die
    And it's the name that helped to make you strong."

    :yes:

    We bought this book for our god sons.

    The Dangerous Book for Boys | Conn Iggulden, Hal Iggulden

    It is a pretty cool information/activity book. The name covers the fact that some of the projects would be considered dangerous in our PC world (making a bow and arrow for instance) but overall it is the sort of stuff most of us that are 40+ did when we were growing up.

    We have gotten our son a lot of sports stuff (balls, bats, hoops, etc...). He also has a lot of trucks and John Deere stuff as well.

    Most importantly, he has a TON of books.
