“The unstained tower breaks and bends knee to the forgotten sign.
The seas rage, and stormclouds gather unseen.
Beyond the horizon, hidden fires swell, and serpents nestle in the bosom.

It’s the 4th of July today, and, per usual, all summer benefit events have gone golf. Planning for fall, winter and spring events is in full swing. If you’re planning a fundraising or benefit event, check out this benefit auctioneer in Minnesota, Sarah Jean Benefit Auctions.
She also has a youtube video on her site so you can see a little auction action.
Ran across this ridiculous article. It’s ridiculous and awesome! Let’s place bets on how long it takes him to receive his first million, billion AND trillion…
The Miraculous NASA Breakthrough That Could Save Millions of Lives
There are no hospitals in space. The closest E.R. is back on Earth, and astronauts can’t exactly jump in a cab to get there. So what happens if the sun burps out a massive blast of radiation while an astronaut is space-amblin’ by?
The NASA Biocapsule—made of carbon nanotubes—will be able to “diagnose” and instantly treat an astronaut without him or her even knowing there’s something amiss. It would be like having your own personal Dr. McCoy—implanted under your skin. It represents one of the most significant breakthroughs in the history of medicine, and yes, it’ll work on Earth, too.
Out of all the amazing things we saw during our NASA visits, nothing blew our minds as much as this tiny little bundle of carbon. The Space Biosciences Division at NASA Ames creates medical technology for astronauts. They essentially provide healthcare for outer space. Dr. David Loftus is the man who invented the NASA Biocapsule and has been awarded a patent for it.

my new hero
There’s an agency in town that I admire called Fast Horse. Jorg, the agency leader and a hell-of-a great guy, said something on a recent post on their blog that rings all too true for me too often:

The first four words I saw were:
It’s a nice sentiment, drawing conclusions about yourself that are mostly positive from a word search shaped as a smiling face. It’s nice and happenstance, and it’s so very flawed. Oh well…
If this doesn’t make you laugh, then we can’t be friends.
