The British Heart Foundation ‘pumped’ out a TV advert last year that featured Vinnie Jones, playing the part of a gangster; who demonstrates a CPR procedure that assists some one who has stopped breathing through a heart attack “we need a body~ and here’s one I made earlier“! A humorous clip, which has had startling results since it was shown on main line TV. Vinnie Jones’ hard and fast Hands-only CPR (funny short film) (full .. .Sharon Thorneywork a 42 year old mother of three children, witnessed Terrence Holly a 72 year old, collapse to the floor suffering a massive heart attack. Her action saved his life, which was all due to the British Heart Foundation, the Bee Gees, and Vinnie Jones cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Mother-of-three saves grandfather’s life by singing ‘Stayin’ Alive’ while giving him CPR on a bus “Hands only, you only kiss the missus on the lips.“ No problem Vinnie mate, anything you say…
When I was young, much younger, say six years old, I used to be mesmerized by the traffic I saw out my car window. Cars, trucks, you name it. A waste company worked in my neighborhood called BFI and they picked up the trash. They are all but gone now. Then, their blue trucks puttered around emblazoned with the company logo.
I recall, at that young age, one of BFI’s trucks on the street, passing us. I stared at the garbage vehicle and wondered: Sheesh, can’t the FBI get a more inconspicuous vehicle? I am like six, and I can spot ‘em a mile off. . .
My neighborhood is haunted by a silver Prius. Recently, I followed a stream of cars chugging along at 4 mph towards a red-light fifty feet away. The head car of our little caravan was the aforementioned Prius. The driver was coasting to the light, no doubt giddy over all the gas she was saving. But for us behind her, we had to brake suddenly to get in her line. Any gas she saved, all the cars behind her surely lost. (Don’t get me started on her driving performance at the same light this weekend. . .)
