Woh! Not Another Storm!

rainTsk! I learned the Philippines has been battered by severe storms and this one probably is their worst this year.

Giant Baby Born In Indonesia

giant_babyWow! This is something else. A baby made his way into the world and the news. Born in Indonesia at 19.2 pounds (8.7 kg), the baby is about three times the weight of an average newborn.

Named Muhammad Akbar Risuddin, he is thought to be the heaviest baby born to date in Indonesia. His parents, both tall, already have two kids before him who were born big but not abnormally large. The boy has become somewhat of a celebrity. Curious people streamed into the hospital Friday for a glimpse. Even the mayor came by and had the honor of naming the infant after himself.
