I know...you are disappointed right? Nothing exciting. Just a video of an Ice Cream truck at White Rock Lake. Preston and I were having a picnic and that truck was so annoying it started to make us laugh so I had to capture the sound. It is a pointless video, but APPARENTLY a huge hit on YouTube.
I want to know who these 609 people are.

"The hour of 3:00 a.m. has several significant meanings.In paranormal work, a lot of psychic phenomena tends to peak at this hour. We also divide the paranormal time from 6:00 p.m./9:00 p.m./12:00 a.m./3:00 a.m./6:00 a.m. There are also references to the Trinity regarding these segments of time.Many of my medic friends report that at 3:00 a.m. the volume of runs they make escalate at this hour. Also, a lot of people wait to pass at this hour. For those who are psychic mediums as myself, (and possibily yourself) waking up at the same time can have a significant meaning in that you are picking up on information from another source (person or spirit) and the hour may have some significance. My suggestion is that you keep a DREAM JOURNAL and record not only the times you wake up during the early hours of the morning, but also the dreams that come through for you. This will give you invaluable information to work from now and in the future."
Ok - that's great and all, but not helpfull. However, I found this article as well and I think I like this answer better:
"If you can fall asleep but wake up around 3 A.M. and can’t go back to sleep, this is called vata-type insomnia. Vatas benefit from oil, as they are also prone to dryness. Adding essential fatty acids to the diet can be helpful, as can oil-based massage. One could apply warm oil to the whole body followed by a warm shower in the morning. In the evening, a warm bath with soothing essential oils like lavender is calming. The classic regimen, however, is a warm foot bath followed by oiling and massaging the feet before bed. Try simply applying a little high-quality food-grade oil like sesame or almond oil to the feet and wear socks to bed. You may be surprised at how well you sleep!"
Sounds like I need an oil-based massage and then sleep with oil on my feed wrapped in socks. I will let you know how how it works.

His neck has this hard thing in it that you can bend it back and forth. Cute little guy. I'll save him forever...or until I realize that I still have that stuffed chicken from the fair. We played some more games and settled on the SkyTram instead of the Ferris Wheel. It was ok, but very stuffy and you couldn't really see much. But we tried. Then it was time for the Fried Foods. I have personally never had anything else at the fair besides a corn dog, cotton candy, or a candy apple. My childhood days were not filled with Turkey Legs, Funnel Cakes, or Nachos. Preston really wanted to try the Fried Peaches and Cream. The picture looked pretty interesting so we looked at the map and started walking. And walking, and walking. We walked back and forth on the "food lane" almost 3 times. We couldn't find it! We found the Fried Butter, Fried Cheesecake, Fried Smores, Fried Bacon, Fried Pork Chips, it just kept going on and on. Finally we went back to the booth of the Fried Bacon. Last year it had won with Texas Best for the bacon and this year it had won for its Fried Pork Chips. Fine. Let's try the Fried Pork Chips. Which are really just thinly sliced Pork Chops fried. We were the only ones around so the lady threw in 2 strips of the bacon. Thank you Fried Fair Lady!
We got our tubs of ranch and honey mustard and found a table to try them out. Greasy. That is all I can say. The Bacon actually was tasty. The pork chips, eh..it was ok. We each ate about 2 pieces each and threw the rest away. Preston's was feeling yucky right away. Just to much. It was almost 9pm and we were both ready to go. I still had tickets left over so we got 2 bottles of water and a bag of cotton candy, to go. My remaining tickets I gave to the lady next to me who was counting out her tickets for the Fried Cheesecake.
All and all I had a really good time. It was fun playing the games and searching for the fried Peaches and Cream. We never did find it, but I offically can say I have tried true fair food. I just wish I had gotten a picture of it, but my hands were to greasy to hold my camera. Here is my last picture as we waited for the DART train to come pick us up. My chicken and my cotton candy!!OH' I almost forgot! We went and looked at the cars too. Here is my future car. Can't Wait!! I just have to wait until my current Jeep is a little bit older and no longer is able to get me around.
