fifties5I am tossing out a lot of old photos from my Grandparent’s day and came across this one that I call the “FIFTIES 5”.  My family had just returned to California from a year or so in Panama and this is a picture of “us kids” and my California cousin.  Times were simpler then and weren’t we

Young Woman Has A Severe, Life-Threatening Allergy… To Her Own Husband

“When Scott and Johanna Watkins began dating, everything seemed normal at first, although Scott did notice that occasionally when he would get close to her, she would give a slight cough. However, he thought little of it, and eventually the two married.

Soon after their wedding, though, Johanna began to have more frequent and more severe allergic reactions…and the troubling part was that it seemed to be Scott who was causing them……

“I know it’s hard, You’re  going to be okay.  Here’s a cup of coffee…..

AND 5 MILLION DOLLARS”.

Move the Chair

Although I was not expecting to sprint over the 366-finish line, I must admit I feel more like I am limping.

But here is the last and 366th/366th photo for 2016.

It is also the last post for Move the Chair.

This all started with a gentle suggestion and nudge from an art coach in 2012 to move beyond Facebook postings of my photographs and to start a blog showing my work. Since then over 1,000 posts have been added along with hundreds of photographs.

In the beginning, it was frightening. What if nobody came? Or worse what if nobody found anything worth looking at? But then I realized the amazing gift I had been given by that suggestion: a giant canvas on which I could throw anything and everything to see what worked–for me–and what did not. If others wanted to come along for the ride, then that was…

Trapped in a drift gillnet off the coast of California, a dolphin struggles to free herself to no avail. She twists, turns, and thrashes, but nothing works. Unable to find a way out to surface for air, she drowns.

The drift gillnet was set to catch swordfish, but that doesn’t stop it from ensnaring anything unlucky enough to cross its path – dolphins, sea turtles, whales. Over 100 marine mammals suffer this tragic fate each year – and it’s entirely preventable.

That’s why Oceana fights tooth and nail to ban the use of these mile-long walls of death. But we can’t do it alone. Without the help of Oceana members like you, there’s no way we stand a chance at keeping drift gillnets out of the water – and fighting for other policies that protect our oceans.

Our special match offer expires in just under 48 hours, and I noticed you haven’t made your gift yet, Abacus. Anything you can give makes a difference – make your tax-deductible, year-end gift to Oceana right now. All gifts are matched until midnight tomorrow!

We’ve stood up to drift gillnets before and come out on top – and with your help, we can do it again. Five years ago, an estimated 500 vessels were operating illegally in the Mediterranean, some with nets up to 12 miles long. Oceana’s savvy campaigning – from media work to pressuring public officials to take action – got Turkey and Morocco, the biggest offenders, to stop their illegal use of drift gillnets.

We’re fighting to save ocean life off the U.S. West Coast – but we’re going to need as many Oceana supporters as possible to power us to victory. Dolphins, whales, sea lions and other ocean creatures are counting on you, Abacus: Give a MATCHED gift to Oceana today and help us defend them and the world’s oceans from threats like drift gillnets.

Your support makes a real difference – for dolphins, and for our oceans. Thank you.

For the oceans,
Geoff Shester
California Campaign Director
Oceana
