“Zombie Cat” goes viral

It sounds like a scene out of a zombie movie.

A cat is hit by a car, buried and then comes back to life.  It’s not a movie though, it’s the real story of “Bart” from Tampa, Florida.

After he was recently hit by a car, his owner buried him in his back yard. Five days later, something mysterious and magical happened. The cat came back to life and dug himself out of the dirt!

Bart suffered a broken jaw, cracked palate and deep wounds but he is expected to make a full recovery.

His owner calls his return nothing short of a miracle.

Apple could pay you $556.00! $ay What?!

How would you like to be $500 richer? How about $556 richer to be exact?

Apple has so much dough, it could afford to pay every man, woman and child in the United that amount.

How is it possible? In this smartphone world, Apple generates its money by the ability to get you, the consumer, to buy high-priced phones. That in turn has helped Apple generate a record pile of cash and investments of nearly $178 billion dollars.

That’s enough to place $556 in the hand of each and every American.
