11-year-old Alabama boy, whose legs were amputated at birth, runs, skateboards and competes in baseball....Hasaan Hawthorne's take on living as an amputee surprises a lot of people.

"I think it's funner having prosthetics than real legs because you get to do more stuff," said Hasaan, 11, a fifth-grader at Valley Intermediate School in Pelham.

He has shared his philosophy with a substitute teacher whose husband was getting prosthetic running legs, and a student whose grandfather was undergoing amputation.

"I like to inspire people and help people," said Hasaan (pronounced huh-SAHN). "I don't like to see people sad, I like to cheer people up. I'm just like other people, just with different legs."...

Faron's Family Photo
WOW! Talk about a weird week. On the same day last week, I was working on a school science project with my 11 year old son Chase. Then a few hours later, a young man was asking me to marry my oldest daughter, Mandi. I realized last week how spread out my kids are (almost 10 years).
Can you top that spread? Email me and let me know or call the station and leave your story 888-887-7139 ext 4.

The Glowing Pickle

Hey this is the perfect time to start doing stuff like this outdoors!

This really does work! We tried it. You can impress your kids with this one.

When a high voltage is applied across a pickle the pickle will emit a yellow glow.

One extension chord
2 nails
A pickle

Cut off the end of extension chord, and split the wires. (Make sure extension is not plugged in yet) Wrap each wire around 1 nail, spread them out so they don't touch each other. Then stick a nail into each end of the pickle. (Make sure nails don't touch.)

Plug in chord
Make sure no one is touching the pickle.
Wait a few minutes
Notice the pickle begins to steam.
Then it begins to flash bright yellow at one end.

Looks best at night

Make sure there is always adult supervision
