(no subject)

after reading up on alzheimers stats thanks to a comment by my friend amy, and in loving memory of my grandmother, genevieve "bebe" brennan, who had alzheimers, i'd like to propose a multi pronged challenge to raise money for alzheimers research and support.

twirl in a tutu.
wear a tiara.
do a little dance, the sillier the better.
do your best pythonesque silly walk
cast a hogwartsish spell to dispel alzheimers
hold up a sign saying some variation on "i love someone with alzheimers"

and take a picture. or a video. and then donate what you can to any alzheimers charity you like (and know is reputable), because it's a hard, hard disease for both the person with it and their lvoed ones and about 500,000 die each year due to the complications of alzheimers. (number from http://www.alz.org/alzheimers_disease_facts_and_figures.asp)

what do you say, internets? will you help spread this?"

#alzheimerschallenge



(not a fancy tiara since i made it myself from wired ribbon. but the glass pearl beads were Gramma's, and so was the pearl "friendship ring" on top!)

"How the growing generation gap is changing the face of fandom"

http://www.dailydot.com/opinion/growing-generation-gap-changing-face-fandom/

"Worldcon’s appeal is partly due to its prestigious guests and partly due to its heritage as a fannish institution. Plenty of the older members have been going for decades, in some cases for literally half a century. The problem is that this core demographic can seem very out of touch to younger fans, an issue that the community has been struggling with for several years."

East Bay Quake

I felt an earthquake about ten minutes ago. (Yes, I'm awake.) I've been busy since then reporting it on the USGS "Did You Feel It?" site.

So how are you?

Coley Cemetery, Montrose, Laurens County, GA?

anybody know where this might be and/or under what name?

after years of searching, i found my father's father's father's death certificate, and that's where he's buried. but i can't find anything via google.
