Cocaine Tied To TV Pitchman's Death
TV Personality Billy Mays Died of Heart Attack in Sleep; Autopsy Shows Mays Used Cocaine Before Death

(AP) An autopsy shows that cocaine use contributed to the heart disease that suddenly killed boisterous TV pitchman Billy Mays in June, officials announced Friday.

The 50-year-old bearded TV personality died of a heart attack in his sleep after going to bed at his Tampa condo the night of June 27.

His wife found him unresponsive the next morning.

The Hillsborough County medical examiner's office Friday said Mays had last used cocaine days before his death.

The report said that although Mays died from heart disease, cocaine use was a contributing cause of death.

How I spent my summer vacation Part 2

It's rumored that on the weekends and the entire community gets together and constructs them.

Here is a little video of the day. I wish it was better but it's not.

How I spent my summer vacation

I was running out of battery.

The kids decided that the 2 minutes of battery I had left was best spent filling pool toys with air.

The dogs wouldn't shut up.
