Foto Friday: George the Gentle Giant

Posted on Updated on

This week is a special Foto Friday. My family’s dog, George, passed away this week. We called him ‘George the Gentle Giant’, since he was kind even though he was a large dog. He was a wonderful dog and will be missed. He’s now in a better place with no pain. I have many photos and great memories of our dog George.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag

Posted on Updated on

I’m very late for the weekly photo challenge. The theme was zigzag. I saw this zigzag outside on a building while walking in downtown Tacoma. It’s technically graffiti but appears artistic. Where does the zigzag start?

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
by Rebecca Skloot

“I’ve tried to imagine how she’d feel knowing that her cells went up in the first space missions to see what would happen to human cells in zero gravity, or that they helped with some of the most important advances in medicine: the polio vaccine, chemotherapy, cloning, gene mapping, invitro fertilization. I’m pretty sure that she – like most of us – would be shocked to hear that there are trillions more of her cells growing in laboratories now than there ever were in her body.”
