On this day in history: September 11, 2001 - The single largest terrorist attack in history occurs when four commercial jetliners are hijacked, two of which slam into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York. Another plane is crashed into the Pentagon. 2,915 people are killed in the attacks, coordinated by Saudi terrorist Osama bin Laden. The civilized world is horrified, especially after seeing footage of Palestinians celebrating in the streets.

Born on this day in history: September 11, 1924 - Tom Landry (1924 - ____) football coach. He was the first coach of Dallas Cowboys, 1960-88; won two Super Bowls.

On the 5th anniversary of the September 11 tragedy, Americans need to be reminded of the sacrifice our young men and women in the service make for us. Although everyone talks about it, this presentation SHOWS it. Submitted by Laura. Heroes.

We watched "Duma" [2004 - PG - This family drama explores the bonds of friendship between man and beast. In this case, a young boy, Xan (Alexander Michaletos), befriends a cheetah named Duma and commits a true act of selfless love: He traverses the southern region of Africa, a long and difficult journey, just so he can help his pal return to his one true home—the wild. Although he may never see Duma again, Xan discovers that love lingers in spite of distance.] This is a wonderful movie. The acting is excellent, the story is exciting and beautiful, and the photography is wonderful. I highly recommend this movie. I recommend it especially to pet lovers—particularly those who have ever kept a wild animal as a pet.

Yesterday, we decided we had tossed and turned unduly far long enough on our unsatisfactory (albeit expensive) traditional bed with inner-spring mattress. We ordered a Sleep Number 5000 from Select Comfort.

Here are some famous people who have Sleep Number beds and their sleep numbers!
