Captcha but no captcha

the happy day has passed and the loved up duo are now husband and wife.

BBFK may have captured the heart of Lever but he has no captcha image when leaving a comment, so i have to offer my congratulations to the transatlantic bloggers here.

i hope your wedding day in Canada went swimmingly (but not in niagra falls) and the rest of your days together will be full of bliss.

help a total stranger

question: what's worse than getting cancer? (sounds like the start of a bad joke i know, but bear with me).answer: getting cancer twice.
question: what's worse than getting cancer twice?
answer: getting cancer a third time.

imagine how getting leukemia in your teens could really put you off your stride. imagine getting rid of cancer and it coming back. imagine having cancer and continuing to work at your job (in a bank of all places). imagine having insurance, but still needing to pay $80k.

one person who doesn't need to imagine the above paragraph is Rachel Hunnicutt-Knight. she is going through it. you can help. you can also go back and play crappy games on facebook. helping would be much better though. imagine going to bed and lying down thinking "i performed an altruistic act today". like the episode of friends where Joey and Phoebe try and find a truly selfless act, you might get a good feeling.
don't worry about that.
if you can donate some money to help out, you can donate at the site was created by a friend of Rachel's family.

maybe it's a scam, i've heard about these things. scams exist. sad fact. some people are absolute bawbags, but i stake my reputation (for what it's worth) on the genuineness of Rachel's predicament. why? 2 blokes. Doc and Rob Jones. both stand up guys, more sensible than some shifty types you can find on forums. Doc is a rambling madman (his words) and addresses the repercussions of scams on genuine cases.

Rob Jones who made the Got-Marrow site isn't just some fly-by-night-cowboy either. he is a cowboy though. and he's older than than the internets.

if you've hung around forums such as digital point, v7n, or netbuilders, you will have probably run in to them at some point.

if you can't donate to help a total stranger, you still help by spreading the word, even posting on facebook.

you can also read Rachel's blog, it's a doable deal, and then she wont be a stranger to you.

Dream Bag

quick post asking for some help please. could you vote for my competition entry here if you like? i entered the competition to design a dream camera bag rather late, actually on the last day (today), but better late than never as they say.

one can win a bumper load of camera goodies and get their bag made for them, so again if you would be so kind i'd be much obliged.
