Courtesy thedomesticdiva.wordpress.com daughter Marielle desperately needs your help!

It is not often that I make impassioned pleas on deansguide but this is a very very grave situation and one worthy of support. As I rolled through my twitter feeds, a new friend Chris Brogan, left a link to the following article written by blogger the domestic diva “Sew Urgent: Help Save My Daughter’s Life”

There is Hope:

Marielle is being transfered to a new and better hospital NY Presbyterian-Columbia University Hospital (NYP) in hopes their additional living-donor kidney programs will save her life. Please consider the following kidney donor options if you or somebody you know can help Marielle.

Compatible Living Donor

Incompatible Donor Program

Paired Donor Exchange Program

Deceased Donor Program

Happy Mother’s Day: Ideas For Your Mom

Even a famous newsman like Anderson Cooper, with an equally famous mom Gloria Vanderbilt, needs ideas on what to get his mom for Mother’s Day. Vanderbilt, made famous by her embroidered designer jeans worn on more fannies than any other designer jean at one time in history, gives solid advice to her son on what to buy mom for Mother’s Day.

So if you are stuck or a last minuted shopper, this interview may help you decide on just the right gift. What am I going to get my mom? It will be tied to her British-Canadian-American heritage.

As for me? My gift is arriving Monday from the windy city for a long visit. I love you mom and you too dad. Best wishes and we are excited to have you home for your visit.

Peace and Love to all moms on this important day. Especially Elsie, Susan, Megan, and my other California mother Jan “Mac” too!
