21. A Fave Photo of Me

My brother sent me this picture the other day and it tickled me to no end.  Mostly because we were all together and acting a fool.  Four out of the four people in this picture were quite tipsy.  One of them fell asleep at the table.  Might have been me.  Might not have been.

And this picture, posted out of order, concludes the February Photo Challenge.  I took all the pictures when I was supposed to – though they weren’t necessarily posted in timely manner. ‘Twas fun while it lasted!


Book Club – The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

I don’t even know where to start with this one.  I thought the book was great.  And that the Lacks family is, to quote Smoochy, “slap-ass crazy.”

I should’ve written this post when I finished the book – back in early January.  But since I didn’t…. Jump in and tell me what you thought about Henrietta, her immortal cells, and her family’s quest for truth and knowledge.

Oh, I do remember one question I wanted to pose…are you surprised at the lack of control we have over our “discarded tissue?”  The fact that someone could use and profit from my cells once I voluntarily dispose of them blows my mind.

Okay, carry on!
