I feel very remiss that blogger friend Stan died over 2 months ago without my noticing. Stan was the author behind the popular blog METRO DYSTOPIA. Per his blog, Stan suffered a fall off of a stool in his kitchen and broke his wrist and had a brain contusion. He later had difficulty breathing and was taken to the hospital and rehab. Stan’s cat, Amata died on January 21, at age 16, and Stan died the following day.
Stan was extremely humane and posted support for animal adoption and other humane organizations. He was a sensitive and intellegent human being, whom I had the pleasure of a virtual friendship with. Stan also posted about local issues that bothered him and we agreed on all of them. I wish I had met him in person. He died way too young.
Rest in peace, my friend!

In Memoriam of Lucien/Mark

It is with sorrow that I report that Mark Sutherland aka Lucien died just before Christmas. Mark was a great internet friend to many and I am sure he will be missed.

I remember his comments on Roids ‘N Rants. Lucien was immortalized by Herodotus in many artworks.

Rest in peace.

R.I.P. Laila

Our German Shepherd dog Laila passed away peacefully last night in her sleep. She was 14 years and 5 months old.

She was a brave, caring and loyal dog and we will miss her very much. She had a great temperment and made wonderful judgements her entire life. While not a real tail-wagger, I couldn’t have asked for a better dog.

Rest in peace my lovely Laila.
