TV pitchman Billy Mays has died

Billy Mays, best known for his high-energy infomercials, has died at the age of 50. He may have been one of the most known faces in infomercials out there. And he and another pitchman had just started their own tv show. Full story can be found here.

It just goes to show you, you can go at any time. All you have to do is read or watch the news lately. Maybe it is just me, maybe it isn't. But between the motor vehicle deaths, the increasing rate of homicides, drug related deaths, and all the other "accidental" deaths, there seems to be a whole lot more people dying lately. Maybe the news is just putting more emphasis on them than they usually do. It just appears to me to be more than normal.

Hug your family, call your friends. Make the most of every single day you have on this piece of rock. You may not have tomorrow.

Well said, but Billy was not alone...we have another "threesome"...

And AGREED...cherish whatever time you have NOW...tomorrow may never get here.

I also agree, well said at the end. Reminds me of that new Nickelback song, If Today Was Your Last Day..."each day's a gift and not a given right. leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind. and try to take the path less traveled." Live each moment like your last!

BTW, got that one vid of Tucker and Stanley uploaded to ma blog if you wanna steal it! :)

Wow and now I'm thinking about how many "unknowns" die each day (people who don't get media coverage)- so if I died would you know about it? - Trolling ;-)
