    Carowinds 40th Anniversary on March 31st

    I recieved a YouTube video from Carowinds in my email today. It's a poem that was written by one of the original park staffers the day before Carowinds opened in 1973 and its really quite well done. The poem is read with videos from the construction of the park, opening day videos, and videos of Pat Hall, the founder of Carowinds. The background music is of the official Carowinds theme song from when the park first opened. Twas the night before opening day - YouTube

    Happy Birthday Carowinds
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).
