Amazing Grace






Amazing Grace Techno - Computer Controlled Christmas Lights from Richard Holdman on Vimeo.



Florence Griffith Joyner - biography.com

Track and field athlete. Born December 21, 1959 in south Los Angeles. Known for her world-record speed, form-fitting bodysuits, and six-inch fingernails. Griffith Joyner was a triple gold medalist at the 1988 Seoul Olympics who captivated the world with her blistering speed and flamboyant style.

Griffith Joyner displayed a muscular physique, which prompted rumors of steroid use. She insisted she never used performance enhancers and she never failed a drug test. Griffith Joyner was voted The Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year for 1988 and also won the Sullivan Award as the nation's top amateur athlete.

She died unexpectedly of heart failure at age thirty-eight on September 21, 1998. She and her husband had one daughter.

Hey Chatty!

Love the Christmas lights display! My husband used to talk about doing something like that to our house when we were first married. I don't know where his ambition went? lol

That is sad that someone who trains and is physically fit would die from heart disease. It goes to show you heart disease don't discriminate and only effect the overweight people like they say!

Merry Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
