  • Welcome to the Blog Carnival Index
    Blog Carnival Index: 3838 editions of 313 carnivals as I link this. It feels like too many already, but with literally millions of blogs I guess there’s plenty of room for more carnivals. One more facet of the Intarweb Big Question: what to do with all this information?

  • Great-Grandmother gets “do not resuscitate” tattoo.
    This is great:

    Eighty-year-old Mary Wohlford has informed family members of her wishes should she ever become incapacitated. She also has signed a living will that hangs on the side of her refrigerator.

  1. Dr Hooker, thanks for the link to JD. I have been a huge fan of the late Dr Gonzo, going so far as to spending days hanging at the Woody Creek Tavern waiting for his appearance. His penchant for subjectivity is certainly needed today:
