Phobias Are Very Real and More Than Half of Us Suffer From a Serious Phobia

My wife and I live in a four-story downtown condo building and when the weather is nice we like to spend time on the roof, which is equipped with couches, chairs and a gas BBQ grill. Recently, we were up there with some friends and one one of my friends got a little too close to me near the rail and I backed away. He asked why I backed away and I told him I had a fear of people being too close to me in high places where plunging to the ground was a real possibility. He was surprised and said that kind of fear is all in your head.

A Tribute to St Jude and it’s Founder Danny Thomas [VIDEO]

Today is our final day of the 2013 3rd Annual St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Radiothon. Many on our staff have traveled to St. Jude to see and experience the love, caring and magic that is St. Jude.

The hospital, located in Memphis TN is the result of Danny Thomas making a promise. As a struggling young actor, Danny prayed to the Patron Saint of Lost Causes - St. Jude. He promised that if the saint would take care of him and his family, he would build a shrine in his honor. The shrine would be a hospital for needy children, where they would be cared for regardless of race, religion or ability to pay, where no suffering child would EVER be turned away. Now, Danny's children continue to keep that promise.
