    201 minuets on the phone = 12060 seconds / 4 sec. per call = 3015 CALLS!!!!!

    3015 Calls and i only got through 6 times

    Wow, no wonder I felt a little stressed today! I was in on every one except the first one and the one I somehow missed the Q to call. I only got through twice today. I knew I made a lot of calls but geez that's a lot at least 2,000 I must have made! Good figuring there Karl! When you know what a great trip you have a chance of winning it's hard not to at least try, even if it can drive you nuts!!!

    Her organs were donated, in accordance with Burke’s wishes.

    had these set up earlier to post - got sidetracked
    it was janis's birthday on the 19th also.
    found what appears to be her last interview on dick cavett
    and info says it was taped on aug 3 1970 - she died on oct 3 1970.

    http://youtu.be/5M-E-Ldfo44



    http://youtu.be/Yybz0TcIgDk



    the blurb for that part of the interview mentions :
    ' ,,, (during the commercial break) Janis shocked the studio audience by pulling
    out a bottle of Southern Comfort (her favorite drink) and taking a big swig!
    Unfortunately this wasn't caught on tape.'



    http://youtu.be/cinexgQal8o




    this is more of cavett, janis and gloria swanson!

    http://youtu.be/TeV4uoDy2ak

    the one where janis talks about her high school reunion:

    if you have some spare time

    Her death stings, because it is unfair, because Sarah Burke was too young and too smart and too pretty and too warm and too well-liked and too remarkable, as an athlete, to leave us so soon.
    Plug her name into Youtube and watch clips of the 29-year-old B.C. skier taking flight, blasting out of a superpipe and soaring up, up, with the blue sky as a backdrop and gravity, an earthly annoyance, as her only limit.
    Ms. Burke twists. Twirls. Flips. She makes us gasp, and it is amazing to see, especially now, knowing that every clip is a reminder and a memorial to a gifted skier who pushed the boundaries of her sport.

    Pushed them so hard and so far that Ms. Burke won four X-game titles, five World Cups and a world championship. She is the reason why the Olympic old boys club added women’s ski halfpipe to the program for Sochi 2014.

    Ms. Burke was doing her thing, being amazing and soaring, when bad luck struck her down. Slamming her to the snow in Park City Utah on Jan. 10, rupturing an artery that carries blood to the brain, triggering hemorrhaging, stopping her heart and causing irreversible brain damage.
    She died Thursday at the University of Utah Hospital.
    Of course, we know what happens next, because it always happens next: Ms. Burke’s tragic death will, somehow, if we allow it to, turn into something that it isn’t.
    But here is the thing: Extreme sports are labelled extreme for a reason. Going bigger and jumping farther and pushing limits involve a measure of risk. Shooting for the stars always does.
    And it is not a deadly risk, not in all but the most freakish of instances, circumstances like the one that has left us contemplating Sarah Burke’s ghost.
    How will she haunt us? What might she say? That she died doing something she loved? That people die every day on the job?
    Police officers get shot. Pilots crash. Journalists are killed in war zones. Executives expire at their desks. There is risk in everything we do and randomness in that risk, making this life of ours a whirling game of unforeseeable chance where, every so often, the roulette wheel stops spinning and your number unexpectedly comes up.
    This is not a safety issue. This is a life issue. So why don’t we look at Sarah Burke’s short life and see what it can teach us about living?

    Sarah Burke poses with her gold medal after winning the Women's Skiing Superpipe at Winter X Games 13 on Buttermilk Mountain in 2009.




    When she was a little girl her father, Gordon, promised her he would mortgage everything so she could ski. He would take her to the slopes where a young girl with big dreams watched the boys competing in big air competitions — boys she knew she could beat — and where she wondered: why not me?
    Why not girls?
    It is a question Olympic organizers could not answer.
    There are other lessons: a short Ski Channel documentary featuring Ms. Burke and her extreme sports star husband, and childhood sweetheart, Rory Bushfield.
    In it we see the couple sitting in the back of a cab, telling their story, talking about a great love and a life together in the mountains.
    “It is what our lives are, being on the hill, and there is a reason for that,” Ms. Burke says. “It is where we met, where we play, where we live and hopefully where we will die.”
    Amen.
