lyrics:

When the wind blows and the rain feels cold
With a head full of snow
With a head full of snow
In the window there's a face you know
Don't the nights pass slow
Don't the nights pass slow

The sound of strangers sending nothing to my mind
Just another mad mad day on the road
I am just living to be dying by your side
But I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road

Made a rag pile of my shiny clothes
Gonna warm my bones
Gonna warm my bones
I got silence on my radio
Let the air waves flow
Let the air waves flow

Oh I'm sleeping under strange strange skies
Just another mad mad day on the road
My dreams is fading down the railway line
I'm just about a moonlight mile down the road

I'm pining sister and I'm dreaming
I'm riding down your moonlight mile
I'm pining baby and I'm dreaming
I'm riding down your moonlight mile
I'm riding down you moonlight mile

Let it go now, come on up babe
Yeah, let it go now
Yeah, flow now baby
Yeah move on now yeah

Yeah, I'm coming home
'Cause, I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road
Down the road, down the road

"Moonlight Mile" is a song from rock band The Rolling Stones' 1971 release Sticky Fingers.
Credited to singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, "Moonlight Mile" is widely considered to be one of the Rolling Stones' most underappreciated ballads.[1] Recording began in March 1970 at Stargroves. The song was the product of an all-night session between Jagger and guitarist Mick Taylor. Taylor had taken a short guitar piece recorded by Richards (entitled "Japanese Thing") and reworked it for the session. Jagger performs the song's prominent acoustic guitar riff. It was Taylor's idea to add a string arrangement by Paul Buckmaster to the song. Piano is played by regular Rolling Stones trumpet player Jim Price. Jagger acknowledged Taylor's role in composing the song in a November 2010 response to Richards' autobiography, Life. [2]

Large Chunks Ice Fall Off Super Bowl Roof Six People Injured Cowboys Stadium Texas

_________________________________________________________________________
Amazing video of ice falling off Super Bowl stadium
At least six people were injured at the Super Bowl site when large chunks of ice fell 200 feet off the roof of Cowboys Stadium on Friday. 
According to the Associated Press, one man was struck in the head and another was hit in the shoulder, said Arlington Fire Department spokesman Pete Arevalo. They were in stable condition Friday afternoon. The other four injuries were considered minor. All were contractors working on the stadium.
Local news helicopters captured amazing video of the ice falling from the site of Sunday's Super Bowl. It's unclear whether the shot below is the slide that caused the injuries or whether it was taken after (our guess is the latter). Either way, it gives a good sense of the power of the falling ice.
Authorities said the ice falling off the roof was an unexpected consequence of the winter weather that has paralyzed Dallas this week. They had never before dealt with such a problem.

Marshall Faulk Voted in Hall Of Fame VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS

Faulk makes Hall of Fame


BARRY WILNER, AP Pro Football Writer www.STLtoday.com Saturday, February 5, 2011

DALLAS - Deion Sanders always was Prime Time. Now he's All Time.
Sanders and Marshall Faulk led a class of seven voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Joining them were Shannon Sharpe, Richard Dent, Ed Sabol, Les Richter and Chris Hanburger.
As talkative as he was talented, known as much for his celebration dances as his interceptions and kick returns, Sanders was an outstanding cornerback and sometime wide receiver with five teams. He's a two-time Super Bowl winner and was the Defensive Player of the Year in 1994.
Sanders reacted to his election with typical Neon Deion bravado. He said he's grateful, but then made sure to explain, "what you feel about me has nothing to do with how I feel about me."
Then he broke into the open field.
"Next to the Bible, my favorite book was 'The Little Engine That Could.' I read that story so many times, I know it by heart," he said. "And a couple trains passed that engine until he started saying to himself: 'I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.' And that's what I modeled my career after. I mean, it sounds arrogant, it sounds brash, it sounds cocky. But it was real."
Sanders also played major league baseball. But football clearly was his calling.
"He was an electrifying performer who put fans on the edge of their seats every time he manned his cornerback position or dropped back to receive a kickoff or field a punt," Falcons owner Arthur Blank said. "Deion is, without question, one of the greatest players in the history of the NFL."
Sanders got in a comical dig at Faulk and Sharpe.
"Man, this is real," he said, "and I got to see Marshall Faulk and Shannon Sharpe cry."
Faulk won a Super Bowl with the 1999 Rams, was the 1994 Offensive Rookie of the Year, 2000 NFL MVP and a three-time Offensive Player of the Year (1999-2001). Faulk is the 10th leading career rusher with 12,279 yards, and for a half-dozen seasons was the most versatile back in football, as much a threat as a receiver as a runner.
"I wanted the ball in my hands so I could so something with it," Faulk said, recalling how he briefly played quarterback in high school and didn't find it exciting enough.
Faulk got teary-eyed when asked how his mother reacted to his election.

Back in Black is an album by Australian rock band AC/DC. It is the seventh Australian and sixth internationally released studio album by the band.
Released on 25 July 1980, Back in Black was the first AC/DC album recorded without former lead singer Bon Scott, who died on 19 February 1980 at the age of 33, and was dedicated to him. The band considered disbanding following Scott's death, but they ultimately decided to continue and shortly thereafter hired Brian Johnson as their new lead singer and lyricist. Producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, who had previously worked with AC/DC on Highway to Hell, was again brought in to produce. The recordings were made at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas, and Electric Lady Studios in New York, where the album was also mixed.

Egypt Ruling Party Resign President Hosni Mubarak Still In Power


_________________________________________________________________________

Leadership Of Egypt's Ruling Party Resigns


_________________________________________________________________________
February 5, 2011

The leadership of Egypt's ruling party stepped down Saturday as the military figures spearheading the transition tried to placate protesters without giving them the one resignation they demand: President Hosni Mubarak's.
The United States gave key backing to the regime's gradual changes, warning of the dangers if Mubarak goes too quickly.
The six-member party Steering Committee that stepped down included some of the country's most powerful political figures — and the most unpopular among many Egyptians. Among them was the party secretary-general, Safwat el-Sharif, and the president's son, Gamal Mubarak.
But protesters in the streets rejected the new concessions and vowed to keep up their campaign until the 82-year-old president steps down. Many are convinced that the regime wants wear down their movement and enact only superficial democratic reforms that will leave its deeply entrenched monopoly on power in place.
Tens of thousands thronged Cairo's central Tahrir Square in a 12th day of protests, waving flags and chanting, "He will go! He will go!"
Mubarak, who has ruled Egypt with an authoritarian hand for nearly 30 years, insists he must stay in office until his term ends in the autumn with a September presidential election. The military figures he has installed to lead the government — Vice President Omar Suleiman and Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq — have offered in the meantime to hold negotiations with the protesters and the entire opposition over democratic reforms to ensure a fair vote.
A day after Obama called on Mubarak to "make the right decision," the administration changed tone Saturday with an endorsement of Suleiman's plans.
"It's important to support the transition process announced by the Egyptian government actually headed by now-Vice President Omar Suleiman," Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said at an international security conference in Munich, Germany. She warned that without orderly change, extremists could derail the process.
Under Pressure
A U.S. envoy who met Mubarak earlier this week, former ambassador Frank Wisner, said it is "crucial" that Mubarak remain in place for the time being to ensure reforms go through. He pointed out that under the constitution, a Mubarak resignation would require new elections in two months, meaning they would take place under the current rules that all but guarantee a ruling party victory.
The State Department later said Wisner was speaking as a private citizen since the mission to Egypt he was sent on by Obama had ended.
But the protesters have little trust that Suleiman and the regime will on their own bring democracy without the pressure of the mass demonstrations on the street. They want the concrete victory of Mubarak's removal — though some appear willing to settle for his sidelining as a figurehead holding only his title — with a broad-based transitional government to work out a new constitution.
"What happened so far does not qualify as reform," said Amr Hamzawy, a member of the Committee of Wise Men, a self-appointed group of prominent figures from Egypt's elite that is unconnected to the protesters but has met with Suleiman to explore solutions to the crisis. "There seems to be a deliberate attempt by the regime to distract the proponents of change and allow the demands to disintegrate in the hope of (regime) survival."
That could mean the crisis could move into a test of sheer endurance, as protesters try to keep drumming out tens of thousands into Tahrir day after day.
In Tahrir Square
The government and military have promised not to try to clear protesters from the square, and soldiers guarding the square continued to let people enter to join the growing rally.
But there were signs of army impatience Saturday. At one point, army tanks tried to try to clear a main boulevard by bulldozing away burned-out vehicles that protesters used in barricades during fighting this week with pro-regime attackers. The move prompted heated arguments with protesters who demanded the husks remain in place in case they are attacked again. The troops relented only after protesters sat on the ground in front of the tanks.
There were also reports for the first time of attempts by troops to prevent those entering from bringing food for protesters. "They want to suffocate the people in Tahrir and this is the most obvious attack on them without actually attacking," said Mohammed Radwan after soldiers tried to confiscate some of the bread, cheese and lunchmeat he was bringing in.
The resignation of the leadership of the ruling National Democratic Party appeared to be a new step by Suleiman to convince protesters that he was sincere about reform — or at least convince the broader public so support for the movement fades.
The president's son, Gamal Mubarak, has long been seen as his father's intended heir as president, a prospect that raised outrage among many Egyptians. The turmoil has crushed those ambitions, however, with Suleiman promising in the past week that Gamal will not run for president in September. Some, though far from all, of the wealthy businessman-politicians that surrounded Gamal and were also deeply unpopular, have also been removed from key posts.
Many in Tahrir dismissed the resignations with scorn. The move will only "reinforce (the protesters') resolve and increase their confidence because it shows that they are winning, and the regime is retreating inch by inch," said Wael Khalil, a 45-year-old activist among the protesters.
Authorities Confident
But authorities were projecting an air of confidence they can ride out the unprecedented wave of protests, which have posed the most dramatic challenge to their hold in nearly three decades of Mubarak's rule.
State TV announced that banks and courts, closed for most of the turmoil, will reopen Sunday, the start of Egypt's work week, a move to depict that some normalcy was returning to a capital of 18 million that has been paralyzed for nearly two weeks by the crisis.
Shafiq, speaking to journalists on state TV, depicted the protest movement as weakening. He noted that a re-invigorated protest — estimated at around 100,000 people — had failed to force Mubarak out on Friday as organizers had hoped. "All this leads to stability," he said.
He suggested protesters and other opposition forces would eventually enter negotiations with Suleiman over constitutional change. "The level of aspirations is going down day by day," he said.
So far, however, only a couple of official opposition political parties have agreed to talks. The official parties, which operate with regime consent, are not involved in the negotiations, have little popular base and are viewed with contempt by many protesters.
The protest organizers themselves are a mix of small movements who managed to draw broad-based support among a public disenchanted with Mubarak's rule. The majority are young secular leftists and liberals, who launched the wave of protests though an Internet campaign, but the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood also has built a prominent role.
They want a deeper change than Suleiman has offered so far, though the vice president says he is willing to talk about all amendments. They seek a lifting of emergency laws that give the security forces near unlimited powers, an end to restrictions on the forming of political parties, guarantees of independent supervision of elections and the annulling of rules on who can run for the presidency that all but rule out any credible challenge of a ruling party candidate.
The current rules are key to the regime's lock on power, backed by rampant rigging of elections, by security services widely accused of corruption and a casual use of torture and by party control of the powerful state media. Most of all, the protesters want Mubarak out, and they insist the talks Suleiman seeks can't happen until then.
Some protest organizers held their first meetings with Shafiq late Friday, underlining that they met him only to discuss how to arrange Mubarak's departure. One proposal being floated would have Mubarak deputize Suleiman with his powers while keeping just his title for the time being.
But "the problem is in the president ... He is not getting it that he has become a burden on everybody," said Abdel-Rahman Youssef, one of the activists who attended the meeting.
Gas Pipeline Explodes
Another sign of the nation's continuing unease arose Saturday, when an explosion went off in a gas terminal in Egypt's northern Sinai Peninsula, setting off a massive fire that was contained by shutting off the flow of gas to neighboring Jordan and Egypt, officials and witnesses said.
An Egyptian gas company official said the fire was caused by a gas leak. Earlier, a regional official said he suspected sabotage.
The blast and fire at the gas terminal in the Sinai town of El-Arish did not cause casualties. The explosion sent a pillar of flames leaping into the sky, but was a safe distance from the nearest homes, said regional governor Abdel Wahab Mabrouk.

Fraternity Members Shovel to Show Appreciation - More Mid-Missouri Community Service

Fraternity members shovel to show appreciation


_________________________________________________________________________

When Mike Kilman saw two college students shoveling the sidewalk outside his home Thursday morning, he walked out to thank them for their hard work.
“No problem,” said Hogan Davis, sophomore at Westminster College.
Colby Davis and Hogan Davis are members of Delta Tau Delta fraternity at Westminster. Their fraternity house is located on Seventh Street, so Wednesday afternoon about 12 of the members decided to trudge out into the cold and help their neighbors dig through the snowbanks to clear their buried driveways and sidewalks.
“We wanted to do something to make sure the neighbors knew how much we appreciate them,” Hogan said.
Hogan, who is the philanthropy chair at Delta, said he and Mandela Byam, the fraternity’s committee chair, came up with the idea after deciding that helping people shovel away snow would be a great way to give back to the community.
Michael Greaves, fraternity president, was also out Thursday shoveling snow beside freshman Chad Huber. Greaves said they wanted to show appreciation to their neighbors for sharing the street with the fraternity.
“We figured we’d give ’em a hand,” he said.
Starting on driveways at around 4 p.m. Wednesday, the students had many of them cleared after two hours, they then went out again Thursday morning and afternoon to continue working. Greaves said the group planned on working on Sixth Street, too, once Seventh was finished.
Kilman was at a neighbor’s house Wednesday when he first saw the students working.
“We know how much work they’re putting into it,” Kilman said. “Everyone was really appreciative of it.”
He said he and some of his neighbors would like to send the fraternity some e-mails, thanking them for their efforts.

St. Louis Teen Stuck in Egypt Hunkered Down Waiting No Flights Out

St. Louis teen stuck in Egypt

KMOV.com
February 4, 2011

_________________________________________________________________________

Adam Deiab went to study abroad for the experience of a lifetime.  He's getting it as a witness to history in Egypt.
He flew to Cairo a week ago Thursday as tension mounted and violence started getting out of control.  He mother, Pamela says had he been scheduled to leave last Friday, he wouldn't have gone.
His first 14 hours in Cairo were spent at the airport which he wasn't allowed to leave.  His family had no idea where he was or if he was okay because cell phone service and internet wasn't available then.
"We were just concerned, where's our child?" Pamela Deiab told us.
When Adam finally did leave the airport he headed for his destination, American University, which was closed.  He decided to go to Suez where there's some extended family.
"He's pretty much been kept indoors for his own safety but he did travel out once and he was pretty terrified," said his mother.  "Burnt out buildings, glass everywhere, buildings destroyed, cars on fire, people running through the streets throwing rocks.  He says people were looting."
We've seen all that and worse on TV in recent days with police and government vehicles in Cairo, running people over on purpose in the streets.
The U.S. Embassy in Egypt says Adam and all Americans need to get out but that not possible for him right now so he's stuck and hunkered down waiting.

Snow Damages Docks Sinking at 'Lake of the Ozarks', Missouri

_________________________________________________________________________
Reminiscent of SNOW STORM 2006: Winter weather at Lake of the Ozarks can bring the unexpected. Dock owners should check homeowner's insurance policies to assure they are covered.

Snow causes damage to docks at Lake of the Ozarks

Associated Press
Posted on February 5, 2011

_________________________________________________________________________

(AP) -- Snow piled high on docks at the Lake of the Ozarks has taken a toll on piers at the central Missouri tourist attraction.
  
Officials said the weight of snow had collapsed two major docks at the lake, and others were either damaged or sinking. The Jefferson City News Tribune reported that work crews were clearing snow from the roofs of covered docks to reduce the weight.
  
"Some of these docks are in danger of going under," said Don Herzing, owner of Herzing Roofing. "In some cases, it's only the boats that are holding them up. We're clearing 2 to 3 feet of snow -- in some cases drifts up to 4 feet -- from the roofs."
  
A severe winter storm blew through Missouri Tuesday and Wednesday, blanketing central Missouri beneath more than a foot of snow and buffeting the state with heavy winds. Residents and officials have spent the last several days plowing city streets and highways and digging out homes and cars.
  
At the Lake of the Ozarks, a popular lake about an hour southwest of Jefferson City, recovering from the storm also has meant cleaning up the docks to which boats are moored. The Lake of the Ozarks is formed by a dam owned by St. Louis-based utility Ameren Corp.
  
Jeff Green, the shoreline supervisor for Ameren Missouri, said there were reports of damage at commercial docks, such as at a condominium and yacht club. However, he said the snow storm was less destructive than ice storms in 2006. Green said the damage this year largely has come from drifting snow that has made the docks heavier.

Victoria Australia Floods Force Koo-Wee-Rup Residents to Evacuate Melbourne Under Water

_________________________________________________________________________

Victorian floods force Koo-wee-rup residents to evacuate


_________________________________________________________________________

THOUSANDS of people were given two hours to get out of their homes as fast-rising floodwaters last night threatened to engulf four country towns.

Victoria's State Emergency Service said it had told more than 6000 residents of Koo-wee-rup, Iona, Bayles and Cora Lynn in Gippsland to grab their pets, medicine, photographs and three days' clothes and flee to emergency centres in Cranbourne and Pakenham.

The warning came as the Lower Bunyip River swelled dangerously upriver, and was tipped to peak at more than 7.2m in the early hours of today.

A ferocious dump of rain caused by Queensland's tropical cyclones Yasi and Anthony swept across Victoria, flooding dozens of homes from Melbourne to Mildura, closing hundreds of roads, inundating schools and churches and leaving a damage bill approaching an estimated $100 million.

At 7.30 last night, the SES texted 4000 phones and called another 2000 landlines across the four towns, warning residents to get out before 9.30pm.

"Residents and businesses are urged to take immediate action to protect life," the SES warning said, encouraging people to take their photographs and valuables with them, and stack other items up high, including in the roof space of their homes, to protect them from floodwaters.

In Koo-wee-rup, Allison Cathie, 32, said she feared she would not have a home to return to today.

"I'm scared about losing my house, having nowhere to live and to find all my belongings trashed," Ms Cathie said. "I don't want to drown and I hate the feeling that we could all drown."

Police and ambulance staff evacuated 51 patients and elderly residents from the Koo-wee-rup hospital, taking them to hospitals in Malvern, Camberwell and Leongatha.

At 10 last night, locals feared the Lower Bunyip River would burst, forcing the entire town to shut its doors and flee for higher ground.

Hugh Brown has lived in the area for 62 years and said he would defy the evacuation order despite his home being on the riverbanks.

"I'm going to ride it out," Mr Brown said.

Last night, the roads out of Koo-wee-rup were clogged with cars full of residents and their belongings fleeing the flood threat.

Almost two years to the day after a fierce heatwave sparked the Black Saturday bushfires that claimed 173 lives, Victoria was awash yesterday, with almost 5500 stranded and besieged Victorians needing help from emergency services.

Mildura, in the state's far north, recorded its highest rainfall on record, and in Melbourne, the southeastern suburbs were battered.

In the most serious storm incident, an English tourist, 26, was rushed to hospital with serious head and chest injuries after a gum tree fell on top of the tent she was sleeping in at a Doncaster East caravan park.

More than 90 people had to be rescued.

With a stage show that includes guillotines, the gallows, the electric chairs, fake blood, boa constrictors and baby dolls, Cooper had drawn equally from horror movies, vaudeville and garage rock to pioneer a grandly theatrical and violent brand of heavy metal that was designed to shock.[2]
Alice Cooper was originally a band consisting of Furnier on vocals and harmonica, lead guitarist Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce on rhythm guitar, Dennis Dunaway on bass guitar, and drummer Neal Smith. Taking on the name in 1968 the Alice Cooper band broke into the international music mainstream with the 1971 hit "I'm Eighteen", which was followed in 1972 by the even bigger single "School's Out", which reached #1 in the UK during that summer. The band reached their commercial peak with the transatlantic #1 album Billion Dollar Babies in 1973.
Furnier's solo career as Alice Cooper, legally adopting the band's name as his own, began with the 1975 concept album Welcome to My Nightmare and reached his commercial peak with the 1989 hit "Poison". His most recent studio release was Along Came a Spider, his 18th solo album, in 2008. Expanding from his original Detroit-based garage rock roots, over the years Cooper has experimented with many different musical styles, including art rock, conceptual rock, rock and roll, pop ballad, jazz, new wave, gothic rock, heavy metal, and industrial metal.
Alice Cooper is known for his social and witty persona offstage. The Rolling Stone Album Guide goes so far as to call him the world's most "beloved heavy metal entertainer".[3] He helped to shape the sound and look of heavy metal, and is seen as the person who "first introduced horror imagery to rock'n'roll, and whose stagecraft and showmanship have permanently transformed the genre".[4] Away from music, Cooper is a film actor, a golfing celebrity, a restaurateur and, since 2004, a popular radio DJ with his classic rock show Nights with Alice Cooper.
In December 2010, it was announced that in 2011 the original Alice Cooper band would be inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[5]

"Buffalo Soldier" is a reggae song co-written by Bob Marley and Noel G. "King Sport" Williams from Marley's final recording sessions in 1980. It did not appear on record until the 1983 posthumous release of Confrontation, when it became a big hit (No. 4 in UK) and one of Marley's best-known songs.
The title and lyrics refer to the black U.S. cavalry regiments, known as "Buffalo Soldiers", that fought in the Indian Wars after 1866. Marley likened their fight to a fight for survival, and recasts it as a symbol of black resistance.[1] The song's bridge, with the lyrics woy! yoy! yoy!, is similar to the chorus of the Banana Splits' "The Tra-La-La Song", the 1968 theme from their TV show, written by N. B. Winkless, Jr.; The Dickies had a #7 hit in the UK in 1979 with a cover of the song. Critics[who?] disagree on whether the complexity of the section is strong enough to be considered plagiarism; the melodic run of 8-6-5 is common on the simple pentatonic scale. There has never been any litigation connected to the similarity.[2]
The song has been covered by many artists, including Cultura Prof├ętica (on their album Tribute to the Legend: Bob Marley) and Vanilla Ice (on his 2008 album Vanilla Ice Is Back!)[3]
