Legendary entertainer Bob Hope dies

A legend is dead. Bob Hope died last night at age 100. I knew it was probably coming--he's been very frail of late, but that still didn't keep a gasp of surprise from escaping when I went online a few minutes ago. The sheer number of peple he cheered--going into war zones, even, is astounding. Rest in peace, sir.

An update on our efforts to help a family

This was sent regarding the cancer patient we've been trying to help. Notice the bolded information about the car. If you know of anyone who has a reliable vehicle they no longer need, I'm sure there's some way to write it off their taxes through the benefit.

Thank you so very much for your outpour of compassion, love, support, prayers and all your items for the yard sale.......... The yard sale was a GREAT SUCCESS, we earned almost $2000 for all the goodies that were donated. We have a total of $2258 in Joe Allen Slone Benefit Fund. If you would like to donate or know of anyone that would like to, you can mail donations to :
Central Bank
c/o Michelle Castro for Joe Slone Benefit Fund
256 Southland Drive
Lexington, KY. 40503
This money will certainly help the family out. But they are still in need of a reliable car. The car that they used to get to Memphis in, was totaled out on Tuesday. A tornado went through Memphis on July 22. A tree fell on the car. This family has had more than their share of bad, bad luck.
