Miss C, Check the link for McDonald's burgers- I believe you have an extra character at the beginning. It does not work as shown-

A lot of people don't realize that the "Every Breath You Take, I'll be Watching You" song is actually a song about a stalker. Sting had recently gotten divorced and he poured a lot of his anger into the song.

That story aggravated me. He wrote that study divided the music into five time block types. Morning = slow, afternoon = louder, evening = danceable, but night and late-night/early-morning he left out. Even after saying I'll be watching you fit all five time blocks.

And now I'm hooked on Axe-Cop. :o)

When you are dead, you don't know that you
are dead. It's only difficult for others.
It's the same when you are stupid.
