"I saw this early this morning. I had a quiet moment of giving thanks and remembrance. Thanks for thanking him NJ and thanks for calling me your friend. He's just one more exceptional human that had a major role in saving my life."

The Man Who Helped Save the World, One Blanche at a Time

Dr. Thomas Starzl, the doctor who performed the first liver transplant and made great advancements in the treatment of organ rejection, died this weekend at the age of 90. I admit I had never heard of him before, but now that I have, I offer him a salute of thanks. His family stated that even with his monumental achievements in medicine, he should best be remembered as a teacher and a friend.So thank you, my friend I never met, for saving my other friend, BlancheNoE. Good journey, Doctor.…See More

"I remember hearing about this guy when that documentary came out (haven't seen it yet). It's a bizarre thing to contemplate becoming enormously famous in another country while being completely unaware of it. What an incredible life story."

"Thank you so much for this, Chig. I know Woody from some of your videos, but I didn't know he was the little black pup in your photo at 0:41 until this. Like Woody, Buddy has also had two bouts with cancer, the first one almost 3 years ago with…"

"Hello Chig. I still don't know yet what cell type Buddy has. It was 7 to 9 business days to get the lab results, and it was slowed by the President's Day holiday. I'm hoping to find out tomorrow. I do know that he has cutaneous…"

Several years ago an elderly friend of mine told me that if she were ever to be diagnosed with a terminal illness, she was going to dump every food in her house and stock the freezer with her favorite food, Eskimo Pies.  I promised her that I and her daughters would cooperate. (Fortunately, her final illness was quick, no time to stock the freezer, which she said was okay, she was ready to go.)

 

About two and a half years ago, one month after I adopted my foster dog Buddy, I…

I didn't expect much when I started watching this. I never heard of this guy before, but I don't pay much attention to this sport anymore. He doesn't even have the physique of today's super cut, gymnastic skaters--kinda spindly and limp looking on top. And the music was way too Liberace for me.

But two minutes in, I was in a stoned trance. This man isn't so much a skater as he is a ballerina with a jetpack, terrain tracking over the ice in magnetic levitation. So swift, so…

That's right. FIVE minutes.

But it takes ten minutes to watch it.

Representatives of a 1960s band called Spirit has sued Led Zeppelin for plagiarism, claiming that "Stairway to Heaven" borrowed its melody from a Spirit song called "Taurus." "Taurus" was written in 1967, "Stairway" in 1972. A Los Angeles district court judge has just decided that the suit deserves a jury trial.

There's no way to deny that…

If it can't be laughed at, it hasn't happened, ever.

If we can't laugh we'll drown in absurdities and socially acceptable small-talk requirements.

YIKES ! ...just read your blog on VH about the dolls. It makes me sad that if this was 30 years ago I'd assume it was some nice old grandma who makes dolls leaving presents to bring joy....now ? Serial killer. No doubt.
